In the Apple App Store games continued to lead the way with Sprinkle Islands by publisher Mediocre AB as the highest newly ranked app in the global free charts. The newly released adventure game Call of Duty: Strike Team by Activision Publishing struck the global paid charts as the highest newly ranked app. Bucking the gaming trend, Rhonna Designs (a photo design app), reach a 22 global rank in the free charts due in part to its designation as Apple’s “Free App of the Week.” Other newly released games scoring a high rank in the global charts were Giant Boulder of Death, Doctor X: Vampire Edition, and SimpleRockets.
In the Google Play store race game Neon Motocross increased its device installs by over 60% compared to the previous week and was the highest mover in Google Play’s global free charts.
