Amazon Maintains Its Loyal Customer Base against Google's
It seems that the decision taken by Amazon to continue with its own app store is finally giving the desired results, as it has been revealed that for every dollar spent on the iOS version of the app, as much as 89 cents were reported to be spent on the app within the Amazon, while just 23 cents went to the Google Play version of the app.
This has been claimed by analysis firm Flurry, which has done the study for over 45 days in the month of January and February of this year. "Showing its commerce strength, Amazon already delivers more than three times the revenue in its app store compared to what Google generates for developers”, said the firm on a blog post, which has claimed that Amazon’s Appstore has managed to cross this time.
However, it is expected that Apple would manage to get as much as 53% of all paid smartphone and tablet app download revenue this year, while the Android app stores, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble would be fighting for the third position.
As of now, Amazon Appstore has crossed the mark, but it would be interesting to see how long it would be able to fight with Android Market.
