Games top App Store revenue in 2012

Inside Mobile Apps looked at Apple’s list of 2012’s top apps and noticed that games dominate the numbers. The top iPhone paid app category, top iPhone grossing, top iPad paid and top iPad grossing are all games (Angry Birds Space, Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, Angry Birds Space HD and DragonVale, respectively).

Gaming titles held much more than the top spots in these categories. Eight of the top ten iPhone apps are games, as are seven of the top ten iPad apps.

iPhone: a mobile gaming device that just happens to make phone calls.
