Emerging top grossing iOS Apps: Angry Birds Space, Galaxy Empire and Tap Paradise Cove
Rovio’s Angry Birds Space is this week’s top grossing iPhone and iPad app. Unlike other entries in the Angry Birds catalogue, Mighty Eagles are consumable items in Angry Birds Space, rather than a one-item $0.99 purchase. It will be interesting to see if the change in monetization strategy will affect the app’s position on the top grossing charts in the long term.
Lower down the iPhone charts, Tap4Fun’s older game, Galaxy Empire continues to experience a second wind, hitting No. 8 on the top grossing charts this week. AppData’s 30 day overview of the game’s position on the top grossing charts give a clear demonstration of how much the app’s revenues have fluctuated recently.
Finally, after a slow start, Pocket Gem’s Tap Paradise Cove appears to be gaining some steam, hitting No. 23 on the iPhone charts this week.
On the iPad charts, the now Zynga-owned Draw Something continues to slide, dipping to No. 7 this week. EA Popcap’s recently updated Bejeweled Blitz is the fastest gaining iPad app, moving up 10 spots to the No. 20 spot.
