Report: Google Play Sees More Downloads in Q2, But iOS Earns More Money

A new report from App Annie suggests that Google Play is winning the app downloads race in the second quarter of 2014, but also points out that iOS is the still the platform that is securing the most revenue.

According to App Annie figures, in the latest quarter Apple's App Store made 80 percent more revenue than Google Play, but Google Play saw 60 percent more downloads. A lot of Google's growth was driven by consumers in Brazil, Thailand and India who helped to drive a 45 percent rise in downloads over the previous quarter.

The report also identified Japan and China as the key countries behind Apple's revenue dominance, while Taiwan, Kuwait, and Turkey were named as quick-growing markets to keep an eye on. Each grew more than 30 percent quarter-over-quarter.
