Netflix becomes top-grossing iOS app after offline viewing switch
Downloading a few episodes of your favorite show to watch on the go via your home or office Wi-fi will certainly relieve some of the carrier networks' pressure, and go a long way towards saving your data caps for another day.
It's barely been a week since the offline download happened, and Netflix was the top-grossing app in the App Store for the first time the other day, beating such stalwarts like Candy Crush Saga, and other subscription heroes like Spotify. Granted, a big part of this Netflix achievemnt is the fact that Apple introduced in-app subscriptions a year ago, and Netflix has grown from $55,000 to the whopping $2.9 million in weekly revenue from the App Store. Back in June, Apple said that it will cut its piece of the pie to 15% if the subscribers keep it going for at least a year, too.
