  2. 2. Distimo Report July 2010 United States REPORT The percentage of applications with in-app purchases is significantly higher in the Apple App Store for iPad (10%) than in the Apple App Store for iPhone (2%). The Games and Social Networking categories in both stores have the highest proportion of applications with in-app purchases available. The higher percentage of applications with in-app purchases in the Apple App Store for iPad may be caused by the fact that this store became available after in-app purchases were introduced, while in-app purchases were not available when the Apple App Store for iPhone was introduced. More importantly, another reason to consider is that the iPad may currently be used more as a media consumption device than the iPhone with magazines such as Sports Illustrated and WIRED magazine selling their content as in-app purchases. Please note that the number of applications available for the Apple App Store for iPad is significantly lower than for the Apple App Store for iPhone, which may also influence results. The top grossing free applications with in-app purchases in the Apple App Store for The top grossing paid applications with in-app purchases in the Apple App Store for iPhone are displayed above. All five applications spent more than 20 days in the top iPhone are displayed above. All five applications spent more than 20 days in the top 100 in June 2010. The most successful free application that monetized using in-app 100 in June 2010. The most successful paid application that monetized using both the purchases is MobiTV, which enables users to watch on-demand and live TV. The initial purchase of the application and in-app purchase is Guitar Hero. The application application is free and users can upgrade to the subscription version at $9.99 for the costs $2.99 including six free songs, and most in-app purchases are available for first month. ESPN 2010 FIFA World Cup, the second most successful free application $1.99 (3-song pack). TomTom U.S.A. is the second most successful paid application with in-app purchases, offers users exclusive features at $7.99 including live radio with in-app purchases. The application costs $49.99, with real-time traffic updates streams of all World Cup matches. available as an in-app purchase for $19.99 (12 months). Please note that while the percentage of ranks between 1 and 10 of ESPN 2010 FIFA World Cup is higher than MobiTV’s, MobiTV is still considered most successful because it has been ranked number one for 10 days compared to 3 for ESPN 2010 FIFA World Cup). Also, since the Top Grossing lists consist of free and paid applications and applications with in-app purchases, not all five top grossing free applications with in-app purchases have been ranked among the 10 top grossing applications.
