Pocket Legends - one of the all-time most popular smartphone games - is making from 30% to 50% more profit off of Android users. Based on figures released by the developers, the Android users account for a majority of downloads, in-app purchases and ad-clicks. The 3D MMO game with a lot of dedicated fans is going to start concentrating more on Android in the future. How is it possible for the app to sell more copies in its Android version if there are less Android users worldwide? Perhaps part of the answer may be the fact that Android boasts a tight-nit community with dedicated users. Or maybe Android just has an unfair share of hardcore gamers :) Either way this story seems to against the long-held logic that developing apps for the App Store is a better way to make some serious money.
Does this mean that Android developers have a bright future in front of them? Or was this just a one-time fluke?
