Amazon delivers most revenue, says mobile game developer

Amazon’s Appstore generating more revenue per daily user

Amazon’s Appstore generates more revenue per user of mobile game title TinyPets than Apple’s App Store and Google Play, according to the game’s developer, TinyCo. When comparing the app stores, TinyCo found that Amazon’s store monetises 80% better per user than the Apple equivalent. When looking at the tablets, it found that Amazon Kindle monetises 43% better than Apple’s iPad. TinyCo’s games have featured in top 25 best grossing apps list on all three stores, so may be one of the only developers in a position to make such a comparison.

TinyCo’s research echoes claims made earlier this month by mobile analytics company, Flurry, that Amazon’s Appstore is generating more revenue per daily user than the Google Play store as the online retailer’s app offering continues to gain traction amid competition from official app stores and independent rivals such as GetJar.
