  • .. 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, pro- vides a comprehensive view of app activity at the global level. It is designed to display key statis- tics around the size, composition, growth, mon- etization, and user satisfaction within the global market and its component countries and cate- gories. 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 ques- tions 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 23 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 June 2013, there are 902,254 apps in the Google Play store, 78% of which are free and 22% of which are paid. 4.8% of all apps have in-app purchase. Compared to May 2013, the number of free apps available for download in the app store increased by 6% while the number of paid apps available for download increased by 3%. 27,984 apps were deleted from the app store during June 2013. • Out of the total number of apps detected, 20.1% were released within the last three months and 13.7% are gaming applications. • Associated with all apps in the Google Play Store are 240,230 publishers, 16.6% of which publish games. The average number of apps per publisher is 3.8. • In June 2013, we estimate that there were around around 3.6 billion downloads of Android ap- plications. Of these, 99.7% of downloads were accounted for by apps that are free to download, 25.6% by new apps and 36.2% by gaming apps. • In June 2013, 15 out of 23 countries we track experienced solid growth in in-month downloads versus the prior month. At the global level, in-month downloads increased by 3.5%. The United States was the country with the highest number of Android downloads in June 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 June 2013. In terms of Android versus iOS downloads for June 2013 Poland showed the largest disparity while Japan 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 32.5% share of June 2013 downloads. The next largest country, the United Kingdom, had a share of 7.5%. • Tools was the leader among the native categories, with 461,796,258 downloads in June 2013, followed by Casual Games and Arcade Games, with 392,865,234 and 385,098,628, respectively. • The fastest growing category was Casual Games, with a 14.8% growth in month-over-month downloads in June 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 2.27 apps per thousand downloads. Racing Games apps have the lowest app-to-download ratio, at 0.02 apps per thousand downloads. • In June 2013 the News and Magazines 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 Racing 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 av- erage price of $8.69, while apps belonging to the Personalization category tend to be the least expensive, with an average price of $1.60. • Among the pay-per-download apps, the highest grossing category in June 2013 was Arcade Games, with in-month revenues of $8,202,273 (excluding revenues from in-app purchases). The lowest grossing category was Shopping. • At the app level, the Arcade Games category tends to have the highest in-month revenues from paid downloads, with category average revenues of $5,139 (excluding revenues from in-app purchases). Conversely, the Lifestyle category tends to have the lowest in-month revenues for pay-per-download apps, with category average revenues of only $393. • Books and Reference app users tend to be the most satisfied while Casual 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, Gameloft's Despicable Me tops the list, with 26,581,000 downloads in June 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.6 stars, followed by Google Inc.'s Hangouts (replaces Talk) and 6677g.com's Crazy Dentist - Fun games. Apps on this list are ranked based on their in-month downloads. • Among paid apps released within the last three months, SEGA of America's Sonic The Hedge- hog tops the list, garnering the highest number of in-month downloads among its peers with 68,000 downloads in June 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.4 stars. Nuance Commu- nications Inc's Swype Keyboard and Disney's Where's My Mickey? take second and third place, respectively. • When we consider all free apps regardless of release date ranked in terms of in-month down- loads, Google Inc.'s Gmail tops the list with 37,258,000 downloads in June 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.3. Samsung Electronics Ltd.'s Samsung Push Service and Gameloft's Despi- cable Me 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 down- loads, SwiftKey's SwiftKey Keyboard tops the list with 557,000 downloads in June 2013 and an average app store rating of 4.7. EA Swiss Sarl's Plants vs. Zombies™ and Mojang's Minecraft - Pocket Edition take second and third place in terms of their in-month download numbers, re- spectively. • When we consider all free apps regardless of release date ranked in terms of all-time downloads, Google Inc.'s Gmail tops list with 534,873,000 all-time downloads and an average app store rating of 4.3, while Google Inc.'s Maps and Facebook's Facebook 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 5,036,000 all-time downloads as of June 2013, followed by OMGPOP's Draw Something and androidslide's Camera ZOOM FX.

  • .. Comparative Country Information 8/ 38 How is the global mobile apps market comprised by coun- try? While the Google Play store is “global” in nature, Priori estimates individual country downloads, allow- ing us to compare performance across countries. In June 2013, the top ranked country in terms of downloads was the United States which also held this position in the previous month.

  • .. Platform Comparison by Country 11/ 38 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 June 2013. The country with the highest number of Android downloads in June 2013 is The United States. 18 out of 23 countries experienced higher month-over-month download growth on the Android plat- form versus on iOS. Portugal was the fastest growing on the Android platform while Poland showed the largest disparity in June 2013 Android vs. iOS downloads. Android vs. iOS in Terms of App Downloads May 2013 and June 2013 Downloads by Country Country Android Downloads (June 2013) Android Downloads (May 2013) Change in Android Downloads (%) iOS Downloads (June 2013) iOS Downloads (May 2013) Change in iOS Downloads (%) United States 1,167,070,810 1,106,079,405 5.5% 511,496,753 506,987,511 0.9% United Kingdom 269,955,472 268,856,151 0.4% 87,167,072 92,291,651 -5.6% Spain 257,092,831 231,759,446 10.9% 31,084,627 31,507,275 -1.3% South Korea 256,050,176 246,603,810 3.8% 63,753,281 61,837,332 3.1% Russia 235,555,402 234,504,419 0.4% 69,684,286 71,164,939 -2.1% Germany 162,869,322 160,754,018 1.3% 54,202,842 56,103,999 -3.4% Japan 161,293,179 147,146,988 9.6% 178,012,594 177,353,889 0.4% Brazil 137,006,972 127,505,411 7.5% 35,921,804 35,340,539 1.6% France 100,341,172 103,677,369 -3.2% 54,303,825 59,630,704 -8.9% Italy 100,206,503 98,531,121 1.7% 49,563,636 47,481,601 4.4% Australia 52,474,403 51,721,026 1.5% 43,160,261 43,181,808 0.0% Poland 50,228,962 46,656,831 7.7% 5,854,378 6,191,230 -5.4% Sweden 50,177,452 53,311,264 -5.9% 19,918,981 19,432,399 2.5% China 40,810,886 36,618,546 11.4% 450,123,883 441,143,696 2.0% Netherlands 39,688,783 40,132,353 -1.1% 31,043,842 30,822,102 0.7% Canada 30,447,243 31,348,103 -2.9% 49,123,742 51,025,088 -3.7% Hungary 21,394,833 21,607,347 -1.0% 3,404,645 3,516,476 -3.2% Austria 18,663,206 19,316,258 -3.4% 8,681,630 9,328,568 -6.9% Portugal 16,781,508 14,793,693 13.4% 5,994,203 5,612,221 6.8% Switzerland 11,512,774 11,512,428 0.0% 14,985,239 17,016,763 -11.9% Denmark 11,496,609 11,652,566 -1.3% 15,680,617 14,944,866 4.9% Finland 11,162,490 11,571,747 -3.5% 5,812,826 5,733,433 1.4% Norway 7,658,483 7,533,115 1.7% 10,726,572 10,706,372 0.2%

  • .. Glossary 36/ 38 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.

  • .. Methodology 37/ 38 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.
