The App Store and the iPhone have been a massive success for Apple and now they have been awarded a range of Guinness World Records, with the App Store being awarded the record for being the most popular application marketplace and also the largest downloadable video game store.
The iPhone 4 has also been awarded the record for the fastest selling portable gaming system, ahead of dedicated gaming systems like the Nintendo DS and the PSP.
“The release of the iPhone has not just changed the mobile industry, but the video game world too,” says Gaz Deaves, Guinness World Records Gaming Editor. “With the never-ending App Store selection and an intuitive device, Apple has created a gigantic new space for itself in the casual games genre that literally brings entertainment to users wherever they may be.”
Some top selling games also won awards, which include Rovio’s Angry Birds and also Tapulous’s Tap Tap Revenge, which has hit 15 million downloads in just 3 years.
