Q4 2013 games revenue doubled on iOS, quadrupled on Android

iOS is still leading when it comes to game revenue. The chart below is awkwardly designed, because 100 is the iOS revenue from Q4 2012 rather than using actual revenue amount totals, which would make far more sense. But, it does show that iOS more than doubled in the past year; and in Q4 of 2013, Google Play generated about 1.25 times what iOS pulled in for Q4 2012. Google Play almost made as much as handheld gaming consoles like the Nintendo 3DS/2DS and Sony PS Vita combined.
Overall, game revenue made up 75% of all consumer app spending for the quarter, which just serves to prove our original point. As you might expect, two of the biggest revenue generators were the same for both platforms with Candy Crush and Puzzle & Dragons, though rounding out the top three for iOS was Clash of Clans, and on Google Play it was Monster Taming for Kaoko, which is a Korean title.

I feel bad owning a smartphone at a later age as I would probably appreciate the games offered in the Play Store. Now, I just use it to browse for my daily tech news and the occasional call and text. Ugh, I'm getting old.

If you're tired of using smartphone, I think it's time for you to go simple, and that's switching back to a feature phone but you will feel even boring because it's just a granny and grandpa phone, so there's still one more choice if you're tired of using smartphone, just switch to the simple and affordable Nokia X Or you can try switching to other platform like Windows Phone or BlackBerry.

Well, I'm 36 years old, and I still enjoy the occasional gaming. I would recommend subtle conservative games, such as : Dots Wheres my water Flow free Real Racing 3 Dominoes Super Stickman golf
