-Minonline reports that the fee-based app model is paying off and figures out which applications bring in big bucks. Zinio, the multi-title digital magazine distributor, fell in behind Apple’s word processor Pages and Smurfs Village. Zinio did outsell Angry Birds, which made global executive VP Jeanniey Mullen very “happy.”
