Around five times more than those of Android.

Analysts CCS Insight and Distimo have teamed up to create a new market tracking product, App VU Global. The report confirmed Apple as the leader in the app space, with the top 200 apps in the iPhone and iPad app stores generating daily revenue of $3.34 million and $2.07 million respectively in January 2012.

Google Play daily revenue grew 31 per cent rise in January 2012, to $679,000 across smartphones and tablets.

In-app payments drove much of this revenue, with 60 per cent of revenue for the top 200 iOS and Android apps coming from this source. Total spending of this type in February rose by 79 per cent for the top 200 iPhone apps.

The only negative news came in the iPad space, where figures for February showed a 27 percent drop in iPad downloads as people waited for the new iPad.

The App VU Global service comprises quarterly face-to-face presentations, app market data supplied by Distimo, spreadsheets and face time with CCS Insight analysts.
