Highest-ranked iPhone and Android gaming apps

Games such as Doodle Jump, Angry Birds, and Fruit Ninja have seen extraordinary success in both the Apple App Store for iPhone and the Google Android Market.

Despite the average selling price of games declining by 28 percent during the year (dropping from $2.01 in June 2010 to $1.44 in June 2010), revenue generated by some of the most popular freemium games has increased tenfold in the Apple App Store for iPhone, said app market analyst Distimo in a report released on July 27.

Seventy-two percent of all downloads generated by the top 300 overall paid apps within the Apple App Store for iPhone are games.

In June, Hanging With Friends and Angry Birds topped the highest ranked free and paid games in the Apple App Store for iPhone while Live Holdem Poker Pro and Robo Defense were at the top of the free and paid apps chart in the Google Android Market.
