This Week's iPad Charts: Temple Run 2 and the NRA Practice Range

On one side we have the sequel to one of the most beloved mobile games in the world. On the other, an app mainly being downloaded due to controversy, morbid curiosity and irony. There's room for everyone in the weekly free iPad app charts!

Thanks to our new streamlined table format for these weekly chart tracking bits I get to spend less time downloading and sorting images and more time watching trends, which was one of the major reasons I started doing them in the first place. It'll be another week before the numeric tracking reboot kicks in, swapping those "N/A" entries for tale-telling numbers, but that doesn't preclude us from starting a pool to guess when NRA Practice Range falls off the face of the charts, never to be seen again.

Will it outlast Temple Run 2? Wouldn't it be even better if you were being chased by furious temple guardian monkeys while trying to practice responsible gun usage, or would the two concepts clash horribly, creating an incredibly short game with a pack of incredibly deceased primates?
