Still under the assumption you can’t make an honest buck selling an Android game? Spacetime Studios, creators of the infamous Pocket Legends, has debunked this myth. The studio claims the game is downloaded roughly 9,000 times a day on Android compared to 3,000 to 4,000 on iOS. With 30 to 50 percent more revenue coming from Android users, Spacetime Studios has its sights set on Android as its primary development platform.
“We’ve just been blown away. Android has become our primary interest,” said Spacetime CEO Gary Gattis.
Pocket Legends has enjoyed great success on both Android and iOS. It currently resides on our Top 100 ‘Best Android apps of all time’ list and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t spend at least a some of hour free time playing. According to Spacetime Studios, Pocket Legends daily activity on Android is double that of iOS. With the majority of profit coming from in-app purchases, daily activity has become synonymous with sales for the developer.
Certainly the results for Spacetime Studios do not reflect the entire market, but for this developer Android has proved more profitable. With considerably less applications, especially high-quality games, available on Android — titles like Pocket Legends could be the next app goldmine.
