We asked our data crunchers to pull together 2013’s Top 52 earners on the iOS App Store and Google Play. Publishers from East Asia were featured significantly more in the playing cards this year. In 2013, 26 of the Top 52 publishers were based in Japan, South Korea or China — up from 16 in 2012. Meanwhile, publishers from the US featured in the Top 52 decreased from 23 in 2012 to 15 in 2013. Additionally, in 2012, three of the top five publishers were from the United States, compared with only one US publisher in the top five in 2013.
