But today, we wanted to highlight the good guys, companies that have developed especially impressive iPhone OS software and will likely do even better in the future. So we've created this list of the Top Ten iPhone App Developers Worth Caring About, along with a brief list of honorable and not-so-honorable mentions at the end.
Because both the App Store and the top app lists are dominated by games, so too is our list of noteworthy developers; however, our list isn't in ranked order. There are, of course, others who we think are worthy of future mention; we will look at them in a later article."
