App Store generates 6 times more profit than Android Market
We all knew the App Store was the most profitable app catalog out there, but recent findings from Distimo show just how shockingly more cash it yields for developers. The top 200 apps in the App Store generate 6 times the profits of those in the Android Market. This makes it obvious why most programmers focus on iOS first and Android is usually only second-best.

The stats were all published by Distimo reporting about the January to November state of the application markets. Other interesting findings include the fact that Microsoft’s Windows Marketplace has outgrown the Nokia Ovi Store and the RIM BlackBerry App Worlds. 

The Android Market however remains the place to go for bargain hunters - Google’s mobile market has the most free apps, but the freemium model is picking up on the App Store as well. 

Sales of iPhone apps generate the biggest income, followed by iPad titles and last come Android app releases. iPhone app sales alone have generated four times more cash than Android Market apps, while iPad apps - double those in the Market in terms of cash yield.

The most popular apps remain Angry Birds, Facebook and Skype.
