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.

LOL, I know. It's funniest when he isnt even replying. He starts a post yelling at people. =)

" It just so happens to provide a really kick ass experience for the user"

Exactly... That is what they dont seem to get. If you are a stockholder or family of one, or maybe an employee, I could see caring, but for 99% of us, all that matters is getting the best product at the best price. Right now Android gives you both the best products and at a better price in most cases. There is a reason its growing fast, becasue they have worked thier asses off on it... Over the past several years android has gone from worst to first, and that is no small task, especially for a free product.
