? What makes more money? iPhone or Android?

Making money with apps is one of the issues of biggest concern with clients and other app developers. Most of us tend to choose the platform we like best and not which one is the most beneficial.

In fact, I’ve known a lot of app developers that insist on using only one platform when they could possibly release to both.

This week, I show you my revenue for last month, compare revenue between iPhone, and look at which one is actually better for making money with apps.

    What do you think about Shopify App platform? A video would be great if you have any experience on Shopify. I am currently doing some research and planning to create my first APP for Shopify platform. Business users tend to spend a lot more for useful tools and it's also not as crowded as the Android and iOS platform at this point.

    I'm agree. Analytics says most of the traffic comes from Google (75%) but income is mostly from App Store compared the traffic. I'm having almost same proportional numbers, (though my income is lot less from the moment)

    Hi Eric. Thanks for the video.
    I would like to ask one thing about AdMob.

    My admob account has been terminated, not sure due to the high ctr or some other cause.

    So, can I use any other person admob account with my same app, by simply replacing the publisher Id and adunit id?
    Are there any issues?

    Hey Eric! Your ad RPM is quite good, for me at least, to ensure you I can share mine – 0.7$ =) It is all because I have 80% of traffic from Russia.

    I started with Android only apps back in 2010, but started also making IOS versions 2 years ago. I still don't have IOS versions of some of my apps. So my IOS revenue is naturally much lower, but here's my stats for September:

    IOS: 232
    Android: 20,816

    IOS: 11,030 impressions, $1.18 RPM, $13.04 earnings
    Android: 323,571 impressions, $1.22 RPM, $395.50 earnings

    (note, usually my RPM is higher, around $2, but has been low the last few months.)

    Some Chartboost and Appbrain revenue, but too low to count.
    No real IAP or paid apps revenue to speak of.

    Hi Eric, great video.
    I just started monetizing my apps.
    I'm betting a lot on rewarded interstials. Have you already tried them?
    Could you share with us what's the percentage of your users which click on adds?
    I mean clicks/users.

    Thanks a lot.

    Thanks, Eric. Our company's answer:
    2016 -> It's Android by 20%. Historically -> It's iPhone.
    iPhone still rocks for ARPU, Sales (Pro/IAPs), & Advertising ePCM. But Android just has the greater market share, more users and thus revenue from Android is better.

    I've only made one app for iOS (in ionic) for my previous boss but even having only Android apps most of them are made with hybrid technologies so that when I can afford it I will port them….
