App Store revenue up 70 YoY

App Annie report shows significant growth in consumer spending across iOS and Google Play

A new report from App Annie comparing Q2 2014 to Q2 2013 shows a 70 per cent rise in game revenue on the iOS App Store, while Google Play saw game revenue double.

The App Annie & IDC Portable Gaming Report also showed that game revenue for handheld consoles dropped by 28 per cent over the same time period. This was blamed on a lack of AAA titles for that market but predicted a surge to come later in the year.
