Apple’s app store makes twice the money that Google’s Play store does (CNMEOnline)
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s App Store still pulls in twice as much revenue as the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Play Store, despite the continued growth in Android smartphone use, according to a report from mobile app tracking firm Distimo. However, Android app sales have pulled closer to iOS numbers over the past six months, the report said – app revenues on the Play Store rose by 67 percent over that period, compared to 15 percent for the App Store. Android users in Japan and South Korea accounted for much of the gains seen on that platform, Distimo said, despite the fact that the U.S. still drives more mobile app spending than any other single country. Revenues for Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Play in South Korea far outstripped Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s — not surprising, given Android powerhouse Samsung’s home-field dominance.
