    • . INTRODUCTION Welcome to Priori! Thank you for purchasing our report! We hope it helps you make better decisions in the mobile app economy. This report, the Global Insights Report, provides a comprehensive view of app activity at the global level. It is designed to display key statistics around the size, composition, growth, monetization, and user satisfaction within the global market and its component countries and categories. It also provides information on the top apps and publishers over the reporting period. This report is based on data collected directly from the app stores, and is supplemented by download estimates and app classifications which are generated through Priori’s proprietary technologies. Please see the Methodology page in the Appendix of this report for further detail on our approach. We are committed to bringing transparency to the app market through data. If you have questions about this report or would like to inquire about our data capabilities please contact us at reports@prioridata.com. Priori Data GmbH Berlin
    • . EXECUTIVE SUMMARY • This report focuses primarily on the size and composition of the global market for Android apps. This includes 24 countries and 30 application categories. Note that for Android we only track apps in the Google Play store, which is not supported by all Android devices or markets. • As of September 2013, there are 1,001,204 apps in the Google Play store, 79% of which are free and 21% of which are paid. 5.2% of all apps have in-app purchase. Compared to August 2013, the number of free apps available for download in the app store increased by 2.2% while the number of paid apps available for download increased by 1.4%. 27,141 apps were deleted from the app store during September 2013. • Out of the total number of apps detected, 21.6% were released within the last three months and 13.9% are gaming applications. • Associated with all apps in the Google Play Store are 269,803 publishers, 16.5% of which publish games. The average number of apps per publisher is 3.7. • In September 2013, we estimate that there were around around 3.7 billion downloads of Android applications. Of these, 99.7% of downloads were accounted for by apps that are free to download, 21.9% by new apps and 34.8% by gaming apps. • In September 2013, 21 out of 25 countries we track experienced a decline in in-month downloads versus the prior month. At the global level, in-month downloads decreased by -8.5%. The United States was the country with the highest number of Android downloads in September 2013. In terms of month-over-month download growth, Portugal was the fastest growing on the Android platform. • Across the countries where we maintain information on both iOS and Android, 17 out of 23 countries experienced more in-month downloads of Android apps versus iOS apps in September 2013. In terms of Android versus iOS downloads for September 2013 Spain showed the largest disparity while Sweden showed the smallest disparity. • In terms of Android in-month downloads, the United States was the leader among the countries in our database, with a 31.2% share of September 2013 downloads. The next largest country, South Korea, had a share of 7.8%. • Tools was the leader among the native categories, with 423,258,934 downloads in September 2013, followed by Arcade Games and Casual Games, with 395,634,917 and 379,247,063, respectively. • The fastest growing category was Finance, with a 12.5% growth in month-over-month downloads in September 2013.
    • . EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (CONTINUED) • We compare the number of apps to the number of downloads as a proxy for market saturation at the category level. Business apps have the highest app-to-download ratio at 2.49 apps per thousand downloads. Racing Games apps have the lowest app-to-download ratio, at 0.03 apps per thousand downloads. • In September 2013 the Shopping category had the highest proportion of free-to-paid apps. Among free apps, the Card Games category was the most likely to contain in-app purchase while among the paid apps the Arcade Games category had the highest proportion of apps with in-app purchase. • Among the pay-per-download apps, Medical apps tend to be the most expensive, with an average price of $7.68, while apps belonging to the Personalization category tend to be the least expensive, with an average price of $1.62. • Among the pay-per-download apps, the highest grossing category in September 2013 was Arcade Games, with in-month revenues of $7,442,804 (excluding revenues from in-app purchases). The lowest grossing category was Comics. • At the app level, the Racing Games category tends to have the highest in-month revenues from paid downloads, with category average revenues of $6,613 (excluding revenues from in-app purchases). Conversely, the Comics category tends to have the lowest in-month revenues for pay-per-download apps, with category average revenues of only $343. • Books and Reference app users tend to be the most satisfied while Arcade Games app users tend to be the least satisfied, with average Android app store ratings of 4.3 stars and 4.0 stars, respectively. • Among free apps released within the last three months, Rovio Mobile Ltd.'s Angry Birds Star Wars II Free tops the list, with 7,745,000 downloads in September 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.7 stars, followed by Kakao Corp.'s KakaoGroup and CanadaDroid's Star Chef. Apps on this list are ranked based on their in-month downloads. • Among paid apps released within the last three months, Gameloft's Asphalt 8: Airborne tops the list, garnering the highest number of in-month downloads among its peers with 178,000 downloads in September 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.3 stars. Rovio Mobile Ltd.'s Angry Birds Star Wars II and Limbic's Zombie Gunship take second and third place, respectively. • When we consider all free apps regardless of release date ranked in terms of in-month downloads, Google Inc.'s YouTube tops the list with 49,516,000 downloads in September 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.0. Google Inc.'s Google Search and Google Inc.'s Gmail take second and third place in terms of their in-month download numbers, respectively.
    • . EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (CONTINUED) • When we consider all paid apps regardless of release date ranked in terms of in-month downloads, SwiftKey's SwiftKey Keyboard tops the list with 374,000 downloads in September 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.7. Gameloft's Asphalt 8: Airborne and Rovio Mobile Ltd.'s Angry Birds Star Wars II take second and third place in terms of their in-month download numbers, respectively. • When we consider all free apps regardless of release date ranked in terms of all-time downloads, Google Inc.'s YouTube tops list with 621,666,000 all-time downloads and an average app store rating of 4.0, while Google Inc.'s Gmail and Google Inc.'s Maps have the second and third highest all-time download numbers, respectively. • When we consider all paid apps regardless of release date ranked in terms of all-time downloads, SwiftKey's SwiftKey Keyboard garnered the most all-time downloads among the paid apps, with 5,067,000 all-time downloads as of September 2013, followed by OMGPOP's Draw Something and androidslide's Camera ZOOM FX.

    • Comparative Country Information . How is the global mobile apps market comprised by country? While the Google Play store is “global” in nature, Priori estimates individual country downloads, allowing us to compare performance across countries. In September 2013, the top ranked country in terms of downloads was the United States which also held this position in the previous month. Downloads By Country - Android % of In-Month Downloads Country Rank (September 2013) Country Rank (August 2013) 1 1 2 Country Download Share (September 2013) Download Share (August 2013) United States 31.2% 32.1% 4 South Korea 7.8% 7.1% 3 5 Russia 7.4% 7.0% 4 3 Spain 7.2% 7.3% 5 2 United Kingdom 7.0% 7.3% 6 8 Brazil 4.7% 4.2% 7 6 Germany 4.4% 4.7% 8 7 Japan 4.3% 4.6% 9 9 Taiwan 3.3% 3.4% 10 10 Italy 2.9% 2.9% 11 11 France 2.8% 2.7% 12 12 Australia 1.4% 1.4% 13 13 Poland 1.3% 1.3% 14 14 China 1.1% 1.1% 15 15 Netherlands 1.1% 1.1% 16 16 Canada 0.9% 0.9% 17 20 Portugal 0.7% 0.5% 18 17 Hungary 0.6% 0.6% 19 19 Austria 0.6% 0.5% 20 18 Sweden 0.6% 0.6% 8/ 39

    • Platform Comparison by Country . How does the size of the global mobile apps market vary by platform? The following table shows how the size of the mobile app market varies by platform in countries across the globe. Market size in a given country is measured using total in-month app downloads across all app categories. Two platforms are considered -- Android and iOS. While the dynamics of the iOS and Android markets are quite different globally, we do think it is valuable to illustrate a basic comparison between the two. 17 out of 23 countries experienced more in-month downloads of Android apps versus iOS apps in September 2013. The country with the highest number of Android downloads in September 2013 is The United States. 2 out of 23 countries experienced higher month-over-month download growth on the Android platform versus on iOS. Portugal was the fastest growing on the Android platform while Spain showed the largest disparity in September 2013 Android vs. iOS downloads. Android vs. iOS in Terms of App Downloads August 2013 and September 2013 Downloads by Country Android Downloads (September 2013) Android Downloads (August 2013) Change in Android Downloads (%) iOS Downloads (September 2013) iOS Downloads (August 2013) Change in iOS Downloads (%) United States 1,144,221,438 1,283,449,771 -10.8% 469,478,031 432,974,568 8.4% South Korea 285,936,139 283,929,922 0.7% 54,646,725 48,977,787 11.6% Russia 270,110,547 281,157,206 -3.9% 79,889,151 63,410,796 26.0% Country Spain 265,322,738 291,691,267 -9.0% 31,347,685 28,784,015 8.9% United Kingdom 257,399,995 293,752,461 -12.4% 87,709,454 82,763,739 6.0% Brazil 172,648,582 169,527,709 1.8% 36,379,743 31,224,648 16.5% Germany 162,218,307 189,379,559 -14.3% 54,973,525 45,140,450 21.8% Japan 157,769,151 182,800,789 -13.7% 190,382,969 169,691,803 12.2% Italy 105,780,528 114,397,586 -7.5% 46,387,044 42,851,263 8.3% France 102,243,294 109,593,710 -6.7% 52,147,668 49,287,958 5.8% Australia 51,179,014 56,566,419 -9.5% 40,811,217 36,028,238 13.3% Poland 48,111,174 53,588,840 -10.2% 6,272,221 5,055,004 24.1% China 39,687,893 42,808,899 -7.3% 510,416,120 582,275,997 -12.3% Netherlands 38,840,266 42,654,925 -8.9% 28,663,153 26,594,000 7.8% Canada 34,202,248 34,615,749 -1.2% 46,388,411 44,857,682 3.4% Portugal 24,735,651 20,977,730 17.9% 5,976,414 5,271,345 13.4% Hungary 22,619,225 23,881,538 -5.3% 3,413,885 2,704,235 26.2% Austria 22,468,931 21,077,922 6.6% 8,687,579 7,542,861 15.2% Sweden 21,261,076 23,843,757 -10.8% 18,277,998 15,807,754 15.6% Switzerland 11,339,531 12,695,692 -10.7% 14,827,343 15,697,766 -5.5% Denmark 11,131,457 12,114,974 -8.1% 13,623,374 12,020,658 13.3% Finland 10,912,392 11,682,356 -6.6% 5,389,856 4,630,120 16.4% Norway 7,312,863 8,052,584 -9.2% 10,661,289 8,407,945 26.8% 11/ 39

    • Glossary . Glossary Active Apps Our Active Apps definition excludes apps that have not been downloaded in the month reported on. Average Rating Average app rating as assigned by the users directly in the app store. Ratings are assigned on a scale from 1 to 5 stars, where 1 is the lowest, and 5 is the highest. A rating of 0 (zero) means that app has not been rated yet. iOS and Windows ratings are country-specific, meaning an app can have a different rating in each country. Android app ratings are not localized - Google assigns a global rating only, so an Android app's rating is the same across countries. Basis Points (bps) A basis point is a unit equal to one hundredth of a percentage point. Change in Downloads The month-over-month growth in estimated period downloads. Estimated Active Users Active Users measures the cumulative number of individual users who have actively used an app in the last month. It excludes multiple usage sessions by a single user. We derive our Active Users estimates by multiplying our download estimates by app interest specific retention rates that we get from a data partner. The calculation is made over a 90 day period. Estimated Downloads (In-Month) Number of downloads generated by an app in the current or designated month. Estimated Downloads (Prior Month) Number of downloads generated by an app during the prior month. Estimated Downloads (All-Time) Number of downloads generated by an app since its inception in the app store. Free Apps Number of free-to-download apps counted in the app store at a given point in time. In-App Purchase Virtual goods or features that can be purchased from within an app. Native Category The category as designated by the developers when submitting their apps to the app store. New Apps Number of apps currently in the app store that were published within the last three months.

    • Methodology . Methodology Every month, we collect app data from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Windows Phone Marketplace. This effort covers 30 countries and processes information on more than 2,000,000 apps and 500,000 developers. Our collection process runs on the 8th of each month, and our reports contain information from the preceding 30 days. A report titled “June 2013” contains information collected between June 9th and July 8th. Our collection process gives us detailed metadata on apps and developers, including descriptions, versioning, size, monetization, user ratings and commentary. This information is collected directly from the stores and presented un-altered in our reports. We have also generated a series of additional data metrics which add value and context to public data. These metrics, developed using proprietary technologies, enable us to better understand the scale, growth, and composition of the markets we cover. Two of these metrics are contained in this report: First, Priori generates download estimates for each app in the store. Our methodology utilizes publicly available information given by the app stores, hard data which is published in company filings and press releases, and other quantitative indicators which serve as inputs to our regression models. In some cases, developers give us direct access to their app store accounts, allowing us to calibrate our models against actual values. Proprietary download information is never displayed in our reports, therefore it is natural to expect a margin of error in our estimates. We hear that for 80% of apps in our database (now more than 1.6mm) our estimates for in-month downloads are within a margin of +- 20%. The error is largest for small apps, particularly those who have just entered a store. As we aggregate the numbers up to the publisher, sub-category, category, country, and platform levels, our margin of error decreases to about 5%. Second, Priori maintains a proprietary app classification system which we call AppArchitecture, which assigns a sub-category designator to each app in the store. This allows us, for example, to classify an app not just as a “Medical” app, but rather a “diabetes” app, a “first aid” app, or a “heart rate monitor” app. This system allows our customers to better target a specific area of interest in the app stores, either for competitive intelligence, investment, or ecosystem review purposes. 37/ 39
