How we got our Sources

We got the data by using App Annie, which is the standard in-app analytics, and app market data, with data on Forbes, and some data on Wikipedia. This is based mainly on Android, and iOS, mobile games, and it is based on player counts not download counts, number of players for each game is a more reliable data than number of downloads, as a number of factors can affect the number of downloads, chief among them is app loss as a result of

  • Faulty phones
  • Lost data on phones or sd card
