Mobile analytics firm App Annie has published its latest quarterly report into the mobile apps market, identifying strong growth in app downloads for Android through the Google Play store, but noting that Apple’s App Store remains top dog for actual money made. The report claims that Google Play is now generating 60% more downloads than the App Store, up from 10% more this time last year. However, it claims that Apple’s store is generating 80% more revenue than Google’s. Note, these figures only include the Google Play store, rather than other Android app stores (including that of Amazon). The report also highlights Android’s strong growth in emerging markets. India is now the third biggest country for Google Play downloads, while Brazil was the fastest growing in the last quarter. But overall, Japan has emerged as a powerhouse of app spending, although the bulk of that is coming from mobile games.
