Mar 8, 2011 4:46 PM –
Spacetime Studios, developers of popular 3D MMO game Pocket Legends for Android and iOS, released some of their sales figures which shows Android is 50-60% more profitable for them than iOS. At the iPad 2 launch, Apple CEO Steve Jobs noted they have paid over $2 billion to developers and Google has only paid $100 million. In general iOS has the more lucrative platform developers, so when we hear of success stories like this it ultimately benefits us as consumers; when developers are compensated for their effects they produce more quality content.
