Amazon Appstore profits better than Android Market's

Amazon logoDevelopers of Android apps are making more money from the Amazon Appstore than on Google's own Android Market, the latest report from app analytics firm Distimo found. The comparison of 110 apps offered on both web stores found that 42 of them make more money on Amazon than on Android Market. The Amazon store is also responsible for 28 percent of the revenue in these apps.

These numbers are put into perspective when one considers that the US-centric Amazon store offers less than 27,000 apps compared to over 400,000 of global apps in the Android Market.

Amazon has a larger percentage of paid apps, at 65 percent, however, compared to 32 percent in the Android Market. The Android Market makes better use and more revenue from in-app purchases, at 66 percent of revenue in the top 200 grossing Android Market apps.

Amazon can change the prices of its apps, and the average price of the top 100 is 40 percent lower than in the Market, at $2.24 versus $3.76, respectively.

About half of Amazon apps aren't available in the Android Market, with the majority of those likely due to the fact they are specifically made for the Kindle Fire.
