WhatsApp Messenger, Vintique, NFL and more on this week’s top paid iOS app charts

Messaging, camera and previously established hit games like Angry Birds Space and Where’s My Perry? dominated this week’s top paid iOS app charts. WhatsApp Messenger took the No. 1 spot on the paid iPhone charts following an August 27 update which encrypts all messages sent over wifi or mobile networks. GMY Studio’s Vintique, a camera filter app very similar to Instagram, took the No. 3 spot on iPhone thanks to a limited time 60 percent discount.

With preseason games already underway and the official kickoff of this year’s football season coming September 5 football themed apps stand to gain a lot in the coming weeks. NFL Enterprises’ NFL Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet 2012 already took the No. 1 spot on iPad this week and the No. 12 spot on iPhone.

Other notable gainers this week are Fishlabs’ space shooter Galaxy on Fire 2 HD which climbed 43 spots to take the No. 7 spot on iPad and Quickoffice Pro HD which rose 19 spot to take the No. 13 spot on iPad as well.
