Within three months of its launch, it has already made $150 million in revenue, thanks to in-app purchases.
And it's worth noting that, while Fortnite is a "freemium" game, it does not adopt a "pay to win" style. All purchases are for cosmetic items — spending money in the game does not give one a better gun, armor, or any other advantage.
While not as viral or as explosive as Pokemon Go was back in 2016, Fortnite does look like a steady competitor with staying power in the mobile market. Especially once it launches for Android.
But how often do people reach for their smartphone to play Fortnite? It's a pretty tough game even on a controller, with all the quick fort building, aiming, and shooting you need to do (very often at once). Do players do well enough on touch controls to want to keep playing, or is it generally an offputting experience in the long run? We thought we'd ask you:
Do you play Fortnite on your iPhone?
All day every day!
I have it installed just in case, but it's not my favorite
Tried it... removed it. Not for me
I would if I had an iPhone...
No thanks. I am good with Rules of Survival / Survivor Royale

Fortnite controls sucks on mobile, especially after you factor in the building controls. Even with built-in aimbot on the iphone, you’d still get murdered by noobs on the console/pc.

You can opt out of PC/console. I have plenty #1's on mobile, even though I play primarily on console. Also, this is an Android-fan dominant website, this poll is trash and a clear misrepresentation lmao.

Like most games on mobile, it sucks without a joystick. When it finally makes it to Android, if it has joystick support, the IOS version is gonna suffer a bit.

Well, I don't have an iPhone (At least not yet) and I've no idea what Fortnite is. And if that isn't enough; I'm an old man so action video games are not for me. I prefer old school 'point and click' (Tap and tap?) adventure games like Broken Sword Series although I mostly play Angry Birds or Candy Crush. That's what old people do, eh? G'Day!

Why do you feel the need to express in almost every comment that you are a old man and something like "yeehaw, during my childhoold we only played football, that's the real game ain't it? Not that I care but just my 2 cents G'Day!"

Luckily my iPhone 6 can't play that game, I tried it on my PS4 but uninstalled it after a few tries, not a fan of the game.

I played few matchers on my PC, but in no hell I am gona even try it on my iPad. The mouse and keyboard combo is there for a reason, for example not playing like a braindead patient and no need for a huge aim assist. Not to mention graphics and sound is as expecxted superior on a PC as well.

Right, I actually like PUBG mobile better than I do on Xbox One or PC.

That is actually really, really sad, considering PUBG is heavily inpired by ARMA mods. AKA skill required games. I personally could not care less for mobile ports of FPS games, it's just too ... how would I put it, cassual, noSkill, imprecise, in a case of PUBG even extremely hideous.

Game would be great with good controls. Really surprised no one has made a small controller add on for phones that has caught on. Hardware in phones is great for portable play so only makes sense.
