AppTRAX Blog: U.S.’ Top Grossing iPhone Market is Home to Mobile Gaming Developers… and Pandora

by Adam Thorwart | 8月 14, 2014

According to AppTRAX, Pandora is the third most grossing app in the U.S. during 2014 – Only Clash of Clans (via Supercell) and Candy Crush Saga (via King.com Limited) rank higher on the top grossing iPhone list with an average of 1.26 and 1.77, respectively. The exhibit below displays the year-to-date top 5 iPhone grossing apps. Note - to achieve a top grossing spot, users must be purchasing virtual goods from the app - advertiser money does not play a factor. Therefore, Pandora’s position in the top grossing come from users opting to pay for the Pandora One subscription directly from the app. An ad-supported free version is still available in the app stores.
