TV, Video and Navigation apps focus: Application Stores Tracker Q2 2012
ByOctober 08, 2012
Social and Communications made an impact in terms of both revenues and downloads on the Google Play and iPhone application stores in Q2 2012. But once again, the Games category maintained its dominance of the top grossing charts across major application stores in the US and Europe. In Q2 2012, freemium games helped drive growth in revenues on both Google Play and the iPhone App Store. With cumulative smartphone shipments set to pass 1bn in 2013, IHS Screen Digest expects Google Play to hold a strong lead over the iPhone App Store in terms of total smartphone app downloads. However, Apple's better ability to monetise apps will ensure that iPhone apps will hold a revenue lead over their Google Play smartphone counterparts.
