DataPoint: Clash of Clans tops Candy Crush in revenue on iOS

AppData-DataPoints-650-x-400

Ever since March of 2013, King’s Candy Crush Saga enjoyed a consistent spot as the top-grossing app on iOS. However, the game’s reign seems to have ended. Supercell’s Clash of Clans has been the top-grossing app on iOS since February. In the past week, Clash of Clans — which has an estimated Facebook monthly active userbase of 7 million — has raked in more than$7 million in revenue, according to AppData. Candy Crush earned about $6.1 million in the same time period.

Both games are free to play, and both offer in-app purchases as a way to generate revenue. However, Clash of Clans uses Apple’s Game Center for sharing, while Candy Crush uses Facebook. King leverages Facebook Connect, making Candy Crush a cross-platform game. Clash of Clans, on the other hand, must develop a different sharing system for different platforms, as Game Center is only available on iOS.
