Mobile intelligence providers such as Apptopia almost always make our top charts about rank, downloads, or IAP revenue. Every now and then, I dip my toe into something different, like top apps by user retention percentage. It’s not as sexy as other stats, but I like to believe the hardcore mobile industry junkies enjoyed it. Given that thought, I wanted to have some fun, so I created a top list by average daily active users for the latest quarter. Yes, that’s my kind of party. Please do let me know if you like seeing this type of information and we’ll continue to do it for future quarters. As always, this data does not include third party Android stores like those commonly found in parts of Asia (but mostly China). OK, so when we look at top grossing charts we see a lot of games like Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans and when we look at top download charts, it’s more along the lines of hyper-casual games.

PlayStation owners are furious at Sony, and they’ve started a hashtag to air their grievances: #BlameSony. The reason? Sony is locking “Fortnite” accounts on PlayStation 4 to its service, PlayStation Network. If you tie your “Fortnite” account to PSN, you’re unable to use it – and anything you’ve earned in game or, more importantly, purchased in game – anywhere else. Nintendo Switch owners learned this the hard way last week when the game finally arrived on Nintendo’s eShop last week: source Epic Games Compounding the issue is the fact that “Fortnite” accounts tied to all other platforms – from the Xbox One to the Nintendo Switch to iPhone and PC/Mac – can be used interchangeably. For example: You can buy the game’s “Battle Pass” on Xbox One, complete a bunch of challenges, then continue completing challenges from the Nintendo Switch (or the iPhone, or a … [Read more...] about ‘Fortnite’ players are furious at Sony for locking accounts to the PlayStation 4 — an exclusionary tactic that’s burning years of goodwill with fans
