Top apps kick off 2012

It seems you've been busy downloading new apps over the holiday period. And the top paid iPhone app we've all been clicking? Keep Calm and Carry On, published by Daniel Mauer.

This app allows you to customise the famous wartime poster with your own clever words and images.

Charlie Brooker might hate all things Keep Calm beyond the original, but plenty of iPhone users don't.

User comments on this app in the Apple App Store include: "The carry on app is really good you can create funky photos of friends and have a laugh! You edit the words the photos and the colours to make it looks awesome! I highly recommended this because it's just brilliant❤😜".
