DataPoints

AppData announced Friday that its data are reporting King.com‘s ascendance. Although we called into question the sustainability of the developer and its most popular game, the data indicate that King.com is not a one-hit wonder.

According to the announcement, the company has the top three Facebook applications ranked by monthly active users: “King.com has been the most successful developer to leverage the Facebook app ecosystem to build its business across all platforms.”

Here are the top five apps on AppData’s MAU leaderboard:

Farm Heroes Saga was launched in April 2013, making its climb to No. 2 particularly notable. Pet Rescue Saga was launched in October 2012. Together, the three games represent almost 22 percent of MAUs in the top 100 apps that AppData is tracking. King.com has four more games that appear in the top 100: Papa Pear Saga, Pepper Panic Saga, Bubble Witch Saga, and Pyramid Solitaire Saga. With all seven taken into consideration, King.com’s games alone represent more than 25 percent of MAUs in the top 100 apps.
