Updated on April 5th.

With more and more games launching onto the AppStore and Google Play store every week it's hard to know what's in vogue and what has fallen out of favour. Handy for you then that we've dedicated ourselves to keeping you up to date with the most popular games available across both of them. If you're looking for the top 10, most popular free games for the iPhone - current to this week. Then you've come to the right place.

Now, I know what you're thinking. That's a lot of qualifiers. It certainly is, these games must have a zero price of entry, they've got to be on the AppStore and, frankly, they've got to have been downloaded by a substantial amount of people. In addition to all of this, we are specifically targeting the UK AppStore with our list; that's not because we think that Brits have exquisite tastes, but instead because that's where we live and so that's what we're doing. Simple.

As you might imagine, this list moves around quite a bit, so we'll be updating it regularly to keep it a reliable source for your low-cost gaming plans. We'll also mention any major changes that we spot every time that we update it, and point out any big changes.

Anyway, start banging your fingers on your screen like a little drumroll, and click through our list to find out the top 10 most popular free games for iPhone.
