Google Play Surpasses App Store Downloads in Q2 2013: App Annie

App downloads from Google Play passed downloads from Apple’s App Store for the first time. According to App Annie, Google’s app downloads were 10% higher than those from iTunes during Q2 2013.

Here is more from the App Annie blog: “Games continued to dominate the share of revenue for both app stores, and still accounted for a greater share in Google Play where it comprised over 80% of revenues vs. roughly 75% in the iOS App Store.”

Google may have the most downloads, but downloads from Apple are still bringing in the most revenue. According to the report, apps from the Apple App store generate 2.3x that of Google Play. But Apple’s market share is shrinking, as apps in Apple’s App Store generated 2.6x the revenue of Google Play apps in the prior quarter.
