Apple has released its weekly app charts for the UK on the iPhone and iPad for the week ending 4 December 2011.

The iPhone app charts - both paid and free - see a new entry in second position in the shape of Angry Chickens Pro and Angry Chickens LITE.

Angry Chickens is developed by Digital-Minds and bears a resemblance to Rovio's Angry Birds, though rather than fire birds through the air, you use an axe to break bits of wood and glass.

Christmas-themes apps are also in abundance, especially in the free iPad apps category where first and second place are taken by MagicSolver's Christmas Countdown 2011 and Christmas Advent Calendar respectively.
