Games played a major part in the increased revenue for both parties

Game apps for iOS pummeled Android game apps when it came to revenue for the fourth quarter, but Android is growing quickly.

According to App Annie's Index, iOS games earned 3.5 times the revenue of Android games in Q4 2012. The iOS App Store increased its overall revenue by 20 percent from Q3 to Q4 2012 while the Google Play store doubled its app revenue in the same time period. However, iOS still raked in more cash.

The top revenue makers for iOS (ordered from 1-10 on the top 10 list) included apps by Electronic Arts (EA), Supercell, Gameloft, GREE, Inc., HungHo Online Entertainment, Zynga, Kabam, NHN Corp., SQUARE ENIX and Rovio Entertainment.

For the Google Play store, game companies occupied nine out of the top 10 list for best revenue-making apps. NHN Corp. held the No. 1 spot.

The top five countries contributing to iOS app revenue were the U.S., Japan, the UK, Australia and Canada. For the Google Play store, the top three were Japan, the U.S. and South Korea.

None of those links were in your first post, which is what I what replying to. As I said, from my experience, people with iphones are a less technically savvy overall, and more willing to waste time messing around on the internet. I would not want to book a trip, or do most online shopping from my device, or any device, as I don't care to keep my phone in my hands all day long. It is simply a tool that I use when I am not home, or bored. It is not a status symbol to me, which most i-product seem to think it is. I dont need some flashy case or feel the need to show off my phone.

My phone is a tool that is used when it is the best option.

The last article you posted also pointed out a reason for some of the difference, and that is due to having lower priced phones, and the fact that many providers dont even sell dumb phones, people just take the cheapest phone, and mainly just want to do what they did on their dumb phone. Again, it is not a status symbol, it is a tool that gets used when it needs to be used.

I know you are just trying to make something good come out of this article for apple, as that is all you care about. I don't care what others use, I just know that for me, I like choices, and want competition.
