Unlike traditional app store ranking systems that simply tell you if an app is popular the moment in time you’re looking at it, Mobilewalla monitors rank and popular across time; check out the top apps for each mobile platform.

Mobilewalla goes beyond simply seeing how many time an app has been downloaded. It uses a propriety algorithm to analyze how the app ranks against similar apps, how quickly it has gained traction, buzz on social networks and blogs, and other factors. You can visit the Mobilewalla site and browse all the categories yourself but for your convienience we’ve rounded up the top three free apps from 2011 for each major mobile platform here.
