Happy birthday, iPhone iOS App Store!

As the 10th anniversary of the iPhone’s app marketplace nears – it officially turns 10 on July 11 – market data firm App Annie has released a new report compiling the top downloaded games and apps in its decade-long run. The top of the lists are dominated by names that should come as no surprise: Facebook, Spotify, Netflix, Candy Crush, Angry Birds, Instagram, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Clash of Clans, Tinder and YouTube.

Without further ado, here are the top iOS apps and games from the first 10 years.
