Year 2012 is near to end, so Apple has released charts of App Store Best 2012, that includes year’s top free and paid iPhone and iPad apps, notable trends and editor’s picks. So in the category of free downloaded apps for iPhone, Google YouTube is at the top of the list.
If we take a look at official YouTube app, it was launched in September 2012 for iOS, because Apple stopped supporting built-in YouTube app in iOS 6. So, its not quite surprising that YouTube app is at the top of the list of free downloaded apps for iPhone year 2012.
