Submission + - Study: Amazon Trouncing Google in Android App Revenue->

suraj.sun writes: Amazon's decision to pursue its own app store appears to be paying off, according to Friday data from analysis firm Flurry(http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2402443,00.asp), which examined a "basket of top apps" that were released for Apple's iOS, the Android Market/Play Store, and Amazon's own Appstore. The firm found that for every dollar spent on the iOS version of the app, 89 cents were spent on the app within the Amazon Appstore, but just 23 cents was spent on the Google Play version of the app.

In total, the apps covered 11 million daily active users, Flurry said. The study covered 45 days over January and February of this year. Flurry concluded that the decision to fork Android was a profitable lesson that could be imitated by a company like Samsung. In part, that's because Amazon and Apple's core business is selling products to the consumer, while Google's strength is in search.
