The top 200 apps on the iPhone App Store generated four times as much revenue last month as those on the Android Market, according to a new study.
The report, by mobile analytics firm Distmo, also found that iPad apps made twice as much money as their Android Market equivalent. It also shows a dramatic shift towards freemium, with half of the top 200 iPhone apps, and 65 per cent of Android apps, are free-to-play and supported by in-app purchasing.
Distmo also reports that there are a total of 79,077 games available for iPhone, ahead of Android's 46,045 and iPad's 26,683, withWindows Phone 7 and the Amazon Appstore in fourth and fifth place. Across all platforms the most downloaded app was, of course, Angry Birds.
