VatorNews - Amazon App Store makes 89 cents for every iTunes dollar (click for full article) "Amazon is far outpacing Google in the mobile market and has got the iTunes App Store in its sites. The Amazon App Store revenue is roughly 89% of iTunes App Store revenue as of February 2012, according to new data announced by mobile analytics firm Flurry on Friday. This puts Google Play, formerly known as the Google Android Market, in the precarious third place spot with only 23% of the revenue coming to the App Store. Amazon has made amazing progress, a lot thanks to its Amazon Fire device that was selling like gangbusters over the holiday season. Amazon has also been known to vet for quality apps, run promotions and market to everyone with an Amazon account. To get the latest data, Flurry looked at a set of top-ranked apps that have a presence on all three stores: Apple, Amazon and Google Play -- looking at approximately 11 million daily active users for this specific study. When we compare these results to the study that Flurry published in its December report, we see that Google has held steady at 23 cents of revenue for every dollar going to iTunes (Amazon was not a part of the previous study.)"
