Too many to name, but a few excellent ones that have been forgotten

Little White Bear Studios (TanZen, Compression)
Illusion Labs (Labyrinth 2, Mr. Crab, Blast Away)
Kieffer Brothers (Abca, Aqueduct, EnsoDot, etc)
10 Tons Ltd - Azkend
Meridian - Alive 4 Ever, Abigale
Kris Pixton (PathPix)

I agree that HalfBrick, Crescent Moon, and Imangi are also really excellent.

I have many developers who have games I love, but as for favorite developers (i.e. Devs who frequently update there games and care about there fans) I'll create a short list below, in no particular order.

Zack Banack - (Jtpck and Alcatrapz) He's managed to develop two awesome iOS games before he even turned seventeen. It makes me feel like I've wasted so much of my life, lol Both of these games are really hardcore and every game he creates is polished and creative.

Limbic Software - (TowerMadness, Nuts!, Zombie Gunship, etc....) Arash, one of the devs behind Limbic actually has a (almost) weekly podcast called "Walled Garden Weekly." I was obsessed to all there games before I even heard about the podcast though. It's insane, but before I started playing a wide variety of iOS games as a hobby I played Nuts! for around 70 hours I think. It scares me how much time I've wasted in such a simple game.

Auxbrain Inc. - (Zombie Highway) Kevin (co-host on "Walled Garden Weekly.") is very concerned with giving players the best experiance possible. I've gotten almost all platinum medals on ZH and I'm anxiously waiting for his next two games to drop. Also, the fact we share the same first name might have something to do with him being one of my favorite devs.

Halfbrick - (Jetpack Joyride) I know they've created many other games, yet JJ basically spawned a whole new genre. What's not to love, it will forever be a classic iOS game!

4Play Studio - (Ninja In Barrel) There first game is one of the most advanced and well thought out puzzle games I've ever played. The reason they're on my favorite dev list though, is because of the overwhelming amount of kindness and gratitude they've shown me. I was even inspired to create some tutorial videos on YouTube for there game.

AidemMedia - (City of Secrets 2) The funniest iOS game ever, and the most I've ever felt connected to virtual characters in an iOS game.

Imangi Studios - (Temple Run, duh ) They inspired a generation of endless runners. 'nuff said.

Get Set Games - (Mega Jump, Mega Run) Mega Jump is one started and fueled my passion for mobile gaming. I also had some very good conversations with Nick (one of the devs) regarding Mega Run, and he took everyone's suggestions on TA very seriously.

Butterscotch Shenanigans - (Towelfight 2) The funniest developers ever! They also make great and innovative games.

... OK, I guess it's time to stop now. I could go on forever, but I guess you have to draw the line somewhere. The above devs have given me countless hours of fun and give so much to the iOS gaming community. I will always insta-buy any game that one of the developers above creates.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned these guys yet, but I gotta give a shout out to Craneballs.

They make some addicting and high quality games, and they're active in their forums and make really good updates, sometimes content updates, sometimes responses to complaints.

Yeah, Luke @ Radian, Sunny @ Doragon, El @ Firi, John with Plasma Sky...

I wish Raptisoft (John) and Mika Mobile (I think his name is Noah) were around more.

The guys from Mountain Sheep in the Minigore 2 thread.

Props to Alex @ Game Whizzes for all the responses in the Fangz thread, even though he and I didn't always see eye to eye
