Game over, Android: Apple owns 84% of mobile gaming revenue

“There’s a reason why so many developers feels iOS users are more valuable than Android: Apple is killing it in mobile gaming with 84 percent of all mobile gaming revenue in the US,” Meghan Kelly reports for VentureBeat.
“Newzoo surveyed 17,000 individuals and took revenue data from the top 200 grossing games in the iOS and Android marketplaces,” Kelly reports. “In the United States, mobile gaming overall grew from 75 million to 101 million players across all platforms.”

Kelly reports, “Paying players have grown 35 percent to 37 million players, and those individuals play 5 times more money in iOS games, than they do on Android.”
