App Annie: iOS App Store Revenue Leads Google Play
On Wednesday, App Annie reported that Google Play still lags behind Apple’s iOS App Store when it comes to revenue generation.
According to App Annie, iOS App Store revenue is now more than double that of Google Play's.
From Q4 2012 to Q1 2013, iOS App Store quarterly revenue grew by roughly one-quarter. Meanwhile, Google Play app revenue grew by roughly 90%. While Google Play had the higher growth rate, the iOS App Store gained more in absolute revenue and earned about 2.6x that of Google Play in Q1.
Not surprisingly, games remain the leading driver of all app revenue growth. By Q1 2013, in fact, the game category had grown to cover approximately 70% of revenue in the iOS App Store and 80% in Google Play.”

Considering a lot of the apps on the Google Play store are free, it's really no surprise. Although they do contain ads. Nothing a little root + ad blocker can't fix.from my rooted Droid DNA

Here we go again.
Android is the best. We hate apple, its products and everything related to it.
Can u android asslickers now leave this forum for apple fanboys? Or is it like a habit that u develop after becoming an android suck up, poking your noses in other people's/ forum's businesses?

Yes, i was referring to your comment.
And about the apps which have in app purchases that you are talking about, atleast we have those in the app store.
If the app is available on the google play as well, it has the same amount of in app purchases.
If u dont want to get caught in the supposed 'scam' then dont download apps which have in app purchases.
I totally agree that most of the in app purchases are mind numbingly expensive and are indeed an unfair way to make money but then again, its up to us to purchase them or not. There is a very simple way to block in app purchases.
Besides, thats not even the point. I really doubt that most of apple's app store revenue comes from those in app purchases made unintentionally.
Im not trying to put a wild blanket over anything. But u shouldnt try to manipulate the readers with random statistics (we all know how manipulative statistics can be) and attempt to steal the thunder from a company thats know for the hard work thats been put in to make it what it is. It had the first app store. And its still the most vibrant one. Comparing that to google play which mostly offers app store's 'hand-me-down' apps is irrelevant!
