Weekly UK App Store Charts: Angry Birds transforms its fortunes

For once, there's a bit of movement in the Official UK App Store Charts courtesy of our friends at Apple, with Ndemic Creations' Plague Inc. making a return to the top of the paid charts on iPhone.

Perhaps it's down to Ebola?

Its appeal isn't spreading quite as widely on iPad, however, with Plague Inc. only managing #7 on the iPad's paid rundown - although even that constitutes a return to the top 10.

There's greater symmetry in the free charts, however, where Angry Birds Transformers has hit the top spot on both platforms, with Zynga's revised New Words With Friends also popping up in the top 10 in the two rundowns.
