‘2048′ Leads The Top Free iPhone Apps List This Week

2048This week’s leading free iOS app is 2048, a simple number and tile game. Tiles sharing the name number can be combined by getting swiped together.  To win, join all of the tiles to obtain a ’2048′ tile. It’s a lot harder than it sounds. The tiles move with each swipe, so you’re constantly re-negotiation strategies and numbers. You can also play a desktop version.

Below, we’ve listed the top free iPhone apps of the week. The list links to Inside Network’s research about the individual apps, including historical charts, developer information and download information.

Every week we spotlight the top free apps every week–helping our readers discover, enjoy and analyze successful content.
