Worldwide downloads of Android apps in 2015 were double those for iOS, but revenues from iOS apps were nearly twice those of Android, according to an App Annie report released this week. First-time device owners in emerging markets drove the huge increase in Android downloads, researchers found. "This growth opens up avenues for publishers to create new markets by targeting unmet needs of users in a given region," the report says. "Meanwhile, app revenue increased notably year over year as iOS cemented its position as app store revenue king."

I am a Android man, my kids are iOS people. They agreed that my android is a bit faster and easier than their iOS.

Still, they persist with it...
