iOS games earn 3.5x as much as Android for Q4

Even though Android app revenue grew much faster than iOS app revenue, iOS apps still earned over three and a half times the amount that Android apps brought in, according to App Annie’s Index.

Top revenue for iOS games included Clash of Clans, The Simpsons: Tapped out and Puzzle & Dragons, according to the report.

  • “Overall, the iOS App Store increased its revenue by about 20 percent, while the Google Play store saw app revenue double.”

    I think something they missed was the relation to number of games and which models they provide. For instance, is pricing the same? Are they ad supported on Android and paid on iOS? (not an excuse here or attempt to explain; the math could change the outcome so I’m curious)

    Good to know growth has increase significantly for Android though. The future is bright.
