FromChinaWithLove, 18 Jul 2018There's just too many alternative in play store, and if you don't mind the ads that come with ... moreBoth have alts / paid version, enough choices on both platforms.
As the report suggest, most of them comes from games, most of them IAP.. and paid subscription.
Now users have switch between Android and iOS many many times. So you can't blame Apple user's behaviours, because they might have came from Android, and Apple users have migrated to android also!
So if a game exist on BOTH platforms, WHY only customer pay on iOS? BECAUSE its more enjoyable!! and more value for money!
In other words.. Most Apps on Android is rubbish!
There's just too many alternative in play store, and if you don't mind the ads that come with it. Some of those alternative are pretty good app as well when comparing to the pay one. And some are even completely free (without ads).
iOS in other hand doesn't have as much alternative as in play store. So, in a way that app in iOS feel pretty forceful and you just end up buying it when you want/need to use something like that.
Let's be honest, how many app out there that the majority of regular smartphone user need it to use that is a pay-app? Like how many pay-app would a regular smartphone user need in their daily driver? Most people are just using Facebook, Snapchat, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, WeChat, Link, etc. For office, almost everyone got a alternative for you. Photo editing/or just add different filters there's also tons of free one. ( And the pay one also need to be compatible in order for he user to actually keep it).
So apple makes 7.2billion from China app store? Almost one third. 🤔 I wouldn't be surprised if China is also the largest android app market.
Tech guy, 17 Jul 2018android user pirate app can't pirate app on ios So sad apple takes your freedom
Android fanboys think Apple users spend more money.
But the truth is App Store is SO GOOD, its WORTH the money spent :)
Sony Xperia FOREVER, 17 Jul 2018to be rich you have to be Apple, and to have an Eyefone you have to be rich, and to show off, ... moreA top end android device is as expensive as an iPhone. It funny to see people paying so much for an Android I’m order to get the misery of google play. Poor souls.
Google play demonstrates why an open OS can be bad. It’s funny to see that there are still people who use the old argument that you have to pay for every app on iOS. There are tons of free apps and that was the case back in 2010 when I got my very first iPhone. I remember at the official Samsung phone they were trying to convince me that IPhone is not good because I need to pay for every app. Lies then, lies now.
KamAbdi, 18 Jul 2018Because in the App store you have to pay and in the play store everything is free and yet most... moreyes... because android user are cheap ... they dont want support developer event it cost 99cent because they waste their money buying new phone every 1/2 year
Before anyone complaining about android apps sucks, Play Store does have a lot of high quality non-pirated free apps. Check Editor's Choice apps. Dont go for stupid apps if you know what i mean. Google need to filter and remove all those useless apps the app developer make for fun in Play Store. Dont download even if its free; wasting your time and data. Meanwhile, App Store just put price tag on everything even on a useless app that should be free.
sadh, 18 Jul 2018Yea bcs ppl really loves pirating apps. I moved from WP to iOS to Android. I paid all paid ap... moreBecause they're cheapskates and want to get things their way even if in reality are beyond their means. Watch them pull out all the excuses now.
