  14. 14. Use this Report to Answer Specific QuestionsThis report not only gives you an overview of the in-app purchase economy in a country, it also can be used to answer many specific questions. Itprovides a lot of in-depth data not available elsewhere, such as: in-app purchase related download numbers (for paid and free apps, percategory and per publisher), the most popular in-app purchase items and further data to estimate app revenues. You can use this information toanswer questions such as:How popular is the in-app purchase monetization model in my country? Are its adopters successful?There are four set of tables that present overall state of in-app purchase economy in this country. “# 06 Downloads & Numbers of Apps withIn-App Purchase” gives you country level information on downloads, prices and their growth rate. The tables in chapter “# 07 Downloads &Numbers of Top Apps with In-App Purchases” are designed to inform you how in-app purchase is adopted among the most downloadedapps in a specific country. To look into that we divided 20 000 of the most downloaded apps into 6 ranges. For each range we present the numberof and downloads of apps with in-app purchases. Also, for each range we also display the number of all apps in this range and their downloads as areference. As you will see, the best ranked apps and games use in-app purchase the most. However, the size of this trend varies among differentcountries. Another set of tables “# 08 Number of Apps with In-App Purchase in Categories and Game Subcategories” deals with thegrowth in the number of apps with in-app purchase among categories. Here you can check how many such apps are available and how many ofthem were added last month. For each category and subcategory the average price of the most sold in-app purchase item is also given. The last setof aggregate tables, “# 09 Downloads of Apps with In-App Purchase in Categories and Game Subcategories”, deals exclusively withdownloads of apps with in-app purchase in categories and subcategories. Here, on top of the downloads numbers during last month, you can findgrowth rates of such downloads and compare them with the growth rate of downloads of all apps in given category.Copyright 2011 Xyologic Mobile Analysis GmbH iPhone China Unauthorized publication or redistribution is strictly prohibited by law.
  15. 15. Which publishers were the best at employing in-app purchases? Which publishers rely on this type of monetization the most?You can find answer to this question in the tables of the chapter “# 10 Top Publishers of Apps with In-App Purchase”. Here publishers areranked by the downloads of their apps with in-app purchase. The more of such downloads the higher a ranking is given to the publisher on the list.In the same table you can find the proportion of downloads from apps with in-app purchase to all downloads by given publisher (in the column“Downloads of Free Games/Non-Games with In-App Purchase as a % of Downloads Last Month"). This value will tell you the importance of in-apppurchase for this publisher. Values close to 100%, especially for free apps, indicate that almost all revenue was made by selling in-app purchaseitems so such a publisher relies heavily on this monetization model.If you are interested in a general overview of the Top Publishers in a specific countryand platform, try our Top Apps and Publishers report: www.xyologic.com/app-downloads-reports/Which apps with in-app purchases are the most successful? Which items are the most popular and what are their prices?This question is answered by tables in chapters “# 11 Top 150 Games with In-App Purchase and Most Sold Items” and “# 12 Top 150Non-Games with In-App Purchase and Most Sold Items”.

  16. 16. What are the revenues from in-app purchase items in a given category or from a single app?It is possible to calculate revenues from in-app purchase based on Xyologics download numbers, but you should take into account that the resultsobtained with the method as we describe in this paragraph are rough estimates. The answer you get here is “What order of magnitude are therevenues in a given category?” rather than “What are the exact revenues in given category?”.Please keep also in mind that values you get are revenues from downloads made during last month exclusively. Revenues fromdownloads made in previous months are not included.The revenue should be computed using following formula: last month downloads*conversion rate*most sold in-app item price. Theconversion rate tells how many downloads are converted into in-app purchases. This value is not provided by Xyologic in this report, it will varybetween categories and countries. It is a good idea to make this computation for several values of conversion rate. In example computation below,we use conversion rate that we obtained from statements from our partners in gaming industry, trying three different values (+/-50%). The resultstill stays within the same order of magnitude.Example. In March 2011 there were 41 635 000 downloads of free apps in Games category (column “Downloads of Apps with In-App Purchase inCategory” from table “Downloads of Free Apps with In-App Purchase in Categories iPhone USA”). Using the conversion rate of 10%(one in ten downloads converted to in-app purchase during last month) and average price of most sold in-app item 1.58 E you obtain: 41 635000*0.1*1.58 = 6,6M revenue. With conversion rate of 5% you get 3,3M and with conversion rate of 1,5 you get 9,9M revenue. Please note: This isa revenue estimate based on the free games’ downloads made in March 2011. The revenues made by downloads from othermonths are not included.You can discuss specific questions around the apps economy with us on Quora:Zoe: www.quora.com/zoe-adamovicz/Matthaus: www.quora.com/matthaus-krzykowski/Marcin: www.quora.com/marcin-rudolf/To find relevant apps or further information about an apps or a publishers success, use our app search at www.xyologic.comCopyright 2011 Xyologic Mobile Analysis GmbH iPhone China Unauthorized publication or redistribution is strictly prohibited by law.
  17. 17. XYOLOGIC.COM # 03 FAQWhich data sets in this report are the most valuable and cannot be found elsewhere?Download numbers are the main indicator of an app’s success. Specifically, they give an indicator how many times an app was installed on user’sdevice which, in turn, is related to an app’s active install base. Downloads are even more important for apps offering in-app purchases. In that casethe revenue made this way is directly dependent on how many active users given app has. Thus download numbers, which Xyologic uniquelyprovides, allow us to identify apps that make the most money and the publishers that are the most focused on employing this monetization model -as well as the categories where this new in-app purchase economy grows the fastest.This report looks at the in-app purchase economy from three different angles. First, the general level of adoption of in-app purchase is presentedacross different app segments: overall, in specific categories and among the best apps. Second, publishers that most successfully employ in-apppurchase within their apps are identified, ranked and listed. Third, the same is done for apps: the best ones are identified and listed together withtheir most successful in-app purchase items.Another unique property of this report is the differentiation between gaming and non- gaming apps. As you will soon see, game publishers are thestrongest in-app purchase adopters at this point so they tend to dominate all top publisher lists. In this sense non-gaming apps would be only bedisplayed very rarely. On the other hand the extensive adoption of in-app purchase monetization model by game publishers deserves a moredetailed treatment. Hence in this report we also look at game publishers and gaming apps from a subcategory level.This report looks at the in-app purchase economy from three unique angles: 1) adoption of in-app purchase across different app segments -overall,in specific categories and among the best app 2) the most successful in-app purchase publishers 3) the most successful in-app purchase apps andtheir most successful in-app purchase items.Copyright 2011 Xyologic Mobile Analysis GmbH iPhone China Unauthorized publication or redistribution is strictly prohibited by law.
