iOS is the dominant paid download platform in Germany. Top 10 iPhone paid app publishers generate 140.000 downloads on average per month whereas Android top 10 publishers only reach 18.000 downloads per month. iOS paid app publishers therefore can rely on different business models because they can expect 8 times more downloads than their Android counterparts.
