Each year, debate is about whether the users spend more money on Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Based on the data collected in the past few years, Apple iDevice users have been spending more money on apps than Android users. According to the report of Sensor Tower, this figure has not changed in the first 6 months of the year 2019.
Apple is ahead with more profits this time too. The report said that users across the world have spent $ 25.5 billion on Apple App Store, which is 13.2 percent more than the previous 6 months ago.
As far as the Google Play Store is concerned, this year so far it has touched $ 14.2 billion, which is 11.3 billion lower than the Apple App Store. Google Play Store has a lot of apps compared to iOS and its user base is also bigger. Let’s say that not all Android apps are available from Google Play Store.
On the one hand where Apple made more money, Google saw more installs on the Play Store. The report says that Google Play Store installs have increased by 16.6 percent. The point to note here is that Apple App Store can be accessed in China, but it is not possible to access Google Play Store in China.
It has been stated in the report that in the non-gaming category, Tinder is the highest earning app in the first 6 months of this year. Tinder has earned 497 million dollars from the App Store and Play Store. The top 5 apps in the report have given place to WhatsApp, Messenger, Facebook, Tik tok and Instagram.
