App Store Top 10: Week of January 17, 2011

Another week, another top ten popular games list for you to scope out. Burn the Rope continues to hold its high spot on the list against usual suspects like Angry birds and Cut the Rope. Angry Birds Seasons is slipping, probably because Christmas is over. Should they have released MLK-themed levels this week to keep the game relevant? In any case, check out the rest of the list below.
