iTunes all year round, hunting for musical hits and apps – Macitynet.it

In the section dedicated to the songs we find the best of the best: the album of the year (Sognando Contro … by Neffa), the song of the year (Remorse Code by Richard Hawley) and the new artist of the year (Alessandra Amoroso, with Stupida ). Then all the top divided by genres: alternative, classical, dance, hip hop, etc. etc. There is no shortage of the top sellers for singles (at the top Tomorrow 21.04.2009 by Artisti Uniti for Abruzzo) and for LPs (No Line on The Horizon by U2).
The section dedicated to applications divided in two: games and apps.
Among the games in the first place there is The Sims 3, the second The Secret Of Monkey Island and the third Worms. Among the games we note the triumph of the big brands: Electronic Arts has four games out of 10, Gameloft three out of ten. For applications, first place is Tom Tom Western Europe, second Tom Tom Italy and third QuickOffice Mobile Suite. An interesting aspect that demonstrates a trend of use of the iPhone to be noted that four of the first five applications (or five of the first eight) are navigators
