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.

Jesus've been on fire lately. And I don't mean in a good way. Seriously, you're going into the Tony Zone. I mean all these links, the massaged numbers, the desperation to link profitability with superiority.

Are you an Apple employee or something?

How much more data do you guys need to see that much of Android's expansion hasn't been in the high end?

Why does it matter? I don't understand. Why this obsession with high end, or low end, or profits?

Also note that there are many more iPhone 4S out there, more than the GS3




Seriously, so what? I don't understand why this matters to you so much, even if it's true. That is just ONE Android halo phone. ONE!

The hypocrisy you're displaying is amazing. You use that stupid Justin Bieber analogy on me, then rant about how many more iPhone's there are. I thought popular wasn't necessarily good Takin? Nope only when we bring up market share, THEN it's bad. Then we get Justin Bieber.

You slammed me for choosing Lian Li in my PC builds (headscratcher). Much like Apple, Lian Li does NOT do "low end" budget anything. And they make profit margins that make other case manufacturers wake up at night screaming over. So what's with the hypocrisy?

Then you bring up some fucking $50 case that, sure, has some good qualities. But is NO Lian Li case. Isn't that the same "race to the bottom" mentality you'll bash Google for and Android supporters?

It's like you have no concrete beliefs or center. I'm honestly not trying to insult you, but it seems like based on poster and product topic, you'll completely change you ideals and say whatever it takes to exalt Apple and flame any opposition.

I slammed Lian Li cases because they aren't particularly well made for products in their price range, not compared to a $200 case by companies like Corsair or Silverstone. I probably shouldn't have even brought up the cheaper cases, but it was to make a point that you can also very easily find a better product for less.

My beliefs are totally consistent, I like things that are well made. Price is a secondary concern. Oftentimes I have to pay more for something better, but sometimes I don't. It's called being informed, it isn't a black and white case of more expensive always being the best option.

Okay whatever, nice dodge.

but it was to make a point that you can also very easily find a better product for less. ironic.
