Top Apps for Android

The folks at Statista put together the infographics below that show us the top grossing apps on both iOS and Android.  These apps are making really big money.

The top 5 apps on Android making at minimum $15 million in the month of July in the Play Store include:

  • Candy Crush
  • Game Of War – Fire Age
  • Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle
  • Clash of Clans
  • Pokémon Go

These apps have reached huge financial success as did the next five on the list.  Multi-millions in a single month. Impressive.

Top Apps For iOS

iOS apps in Apple’s App Store saw similar financial success.  The top five include:

  • Pandora Music and Radio
  • Netflix
  • Candy Crush Saga
  • Pokèmon Go
  • Clash Royale

These five saw gross revenue ranging from over $9 million – $21 million in the month of July 2017. The data for both reports came from Priori Data. Are you starting to think that perhaps you should have learned to program???

An interesting observation is that all of the apps on the Play Store list are games except for the last one. Our congratulations go out to the developers of apps that have reached any level of success and recognition.
