2. Spotify Music (iOS)

Do you use Spotify? Not me, but I know plenty of people who absolutely love the service.
In addition, their business model is genius. It’s kinda like the Kylie Jenner app, except it’s not hated on by mothers of teenage girls. Either way, this mobile app development company is on fire.
At an estimated $8.52 million a month, it is a good sign that streaming music is alive and well. If you are curious, Pandora’s app only makes about $1.02 million a month, on iOS. If you hire an app developer, make sure you look at Spotify for ideas 🙂
Since Spotify has about 30M songs available (comparable to Apple Music), it’s no wonder they are making more money. Last I checked, Pandora only has a little over 1 million.

Spotify - a top grossing app


1. Clash of Clans (iOS)

Now we get to the grandaddy of baller apps. Do you think it makes more than Game of War?
Drum roll please….
Yes! It does make more than Game of War, by a small margin.
If you make games, you must study apps like Clash of Clans and Boom Beach. How do they retain players? What countries are they popular in?
You can learn a ton by playing this game.
