Thrillist: 45 percent of our revenue comes from iPhone app

“The iPhone app will bring in an incredible amount of revenue this year … mobile will be the majority in Q2,” Lerer told VentureBeat after the panel. “It’s a beast. This is where our guys are.”

According to the report, Thrillist’s annual revenue is in the vicinity of $40 million. That’s a lot of iPhone activity.

He said they have an Android app too, but it doesn’t create nearly the same amount of activity as the iPhone app.

    I took a look at their Android app. I’m not surprised that it’s not generating revenue — it looks like a buggy port of their iOS app. It’s full of iOS UI patterns that are out of place on Android. It has almost as many one-star ratings as five-star ones, and many users complain that its buggy, slow, and a data hog. I’d suggest that they embrace the Android Design Guidelines and do a major rework of their app. Right now, it’s not really fair to compare the two.
