Apple App Store Revenues 4x Larger Than Google Play: App Annie Report

It’s not really a big surprise, but today App Annie reported that Apple’s revenues from digital content is 4x that of revenues from Google Play.

Still Google can’t be ignored. According to App Annie’s monthly index report, which looks at global app downloads and revenues, Google Play’s revenue grew 17.9 percent in the last month, while iOS revenue dropped 0.7 percent in the same time period. The report also revealed that Japanese consumers are now spending more on apps from Google Play than are U.S. consumers for the first time.

The report may be a good place to find out about the next best app breakout development company. Here is more from the report: “If you’re on the lookout for the next Rovio, then the present month may be a good time to read this report. App publishers such as Supercell, NextFloor and Applibot are monetizing their users at an astounding rate on the back of a couple of apps. And no wonder you’ll find their apps at the top of the ‘App Revenue Top 10’ charts.”
