Who is your favorite AppStore publisher and why?

Because Valentine's Day is so close, I thought, why not start a thread about AppStore Publishers you love.
I have two of them:
Viaden: because they make great casino games and they always show love for the TA Community.
Gameloft: because they've shown that Halo, Grand theft Auto and many countless other games can be possible on any iDevice.

Chillingo: They publish some of the best games out there (Ravensword, Cut the Rope, The Hero, Guerrilla Bob, Minigore, Monster Mayhem, upcoming game DARK)

Gameloft: Some really good FPS's (Modern Combat and NOVA)

Oops, I forgot chillingo.
Chilingo: Because they make games that appeal to both the casual and the hardcore gamer.

If we are talking just publisher, Chillingo is def great. If we are talking publisher/developer then number one is def. Gameloft and EA. I know they are big companies and have the big budgets but they still put out the best games that push the envelope further and further. Without them iOS gaming would not be what it is today.

Viaden are lovely <3

I don't have a favourite and tend to avoid big game companies mostly, I can play those kind of games on wii or xbox mostly.

I just enjoy checking out smaller developers or original casual games because I like art in every form, and love seeing what comes out of creative peoples heads.

Favorite developer is definitely Rocketcat Games. The hook games are so much fun to play.

They make a lot of super high quality casual games like Azkend. Simple games, but polished to perfection. They could probably make an Angry Birds thats better than the real thing.

Chillingo and Appular
I though gameloft was a developer and not a publisher
