DataPoint: Clash Of Clans Is The Top Revenue-Generator On IOS

DataPoints

King.com‘s Candy Crush Saga has enjoyed a consistent spot as the top-grossing application on iOS since March 2013. However, the game’s reign seems to have ended. Supercell‘s Clash of Clans has been the top-grossing app on iOS since February. In the past week, Clash of Clans has raked in more than $7 million in revenue, according to AppData. Candy Crush Saga earned about $6.1 million in the same time period.

Both games are free to play, and both offer in-app purchases as a way to generate revenue. However, Clash of Clans uses the Apple Game Center for sharing, while Candy Crush uses Facebook. King.com leverages Facebook Connect, making Candy Crush Saga a cross-platform game. Clash of Clans, on the other hand, must develop a different sharing system for different platforms, as Game Center is only available on iOS.
