Free WP7 Apps vs. Free Android Apps
Which OS is better in terms of revenue and productivity? Is it the famous Android or the New kid on the block Windows Phone 7?.
Well, we launched our popular FREE Mortal Kombat Tactics App in both markets. Keep in mind that Android has around 36% market share of the smart phones and Windows Phone 7 started with around 5 – 6%.
Here are the numbers for both platforms, and we are comparing the first 5 Days of the application (having a lot of experience in the marketplace I noticed that the first 5 days are crucial for the success of the App).
Android is using the Advertising AdMob and WP7 is using its PubCenter.
1,866 Impressions / $0.57 Revenue
497 Impressions / $0.27 Revenue
521 Impressions / $0.05 Revenue
496 Impressions / $0.25 Revenue
304 Impressions / $0.13 Revenue
Giving us a grand total of 3,684 Impressions and $1.27 in Revenue
Windows Phone 7:
2,070 Impressions / $1.28 Revenue (already surpassed Android’s 5 days)
1,903 Impressions / $2.52 Revenue
2,391 Impressions / $4.63 Revenue
3,693 Impressions / $3.86 Revenue
2,274 Impressions / $2.48 Revenue
Giving us a grand total of 12,331 Impressions and $14.77 in Revenue
Watching those numbers I must say that Windows Phone 7 is clearly the winner here. There are many reasons why Android fails to have the same numbers as Windows Phone 7 and I believe is because the Mass amount of applications, Lack of visibility on the “new” category, etc.
Tell me what you think.
