Highlights from the infographic:

  • 4648 app developers made >$1M across the iOS App Store and Google Play in 2016

  • Games continues to dominate with 81% of the revenues from ‘millionaire’ app developers

  • 56% of ‘millionaire’ app revenues were outside the top 100 publishers

  • Almost 30,000 developers made >$100,000 on the app stores in 2016

The Millionaire’s Index showcases the continued growth of the mobile app marketplace and signals that it is maturing into a platform that is providing a meaningful revenue stream to a growing number of emerging business operating in the digital economy.

“The emergence of the torso of the app stores is good news for the app economy, showing that success on mobile is no longer the preserve of just the very top tier of developers.” says Martin Macmillan, CEO of Pollen VC. “It’s great to see emerging digital businesses from all corners of the earth play on a global stage empowered by a democratized app economy”.

Patrick Kane, CEO of Priori Data commented, “Although mobile gaming apps still mint the most millionaires, it is encouraging to see more non-gaming apps crossing the million dollar revenue threshold. It is a reflection of three major shifts in the last year: the stores have improved subscription products and economics for developers, developers have become more sophisticated in leveraging subscription business models, and consumers have embraced the changes and demonstrated a willingness to pay for great content and services beyond games.”

Pollen has also updated their LTV Financial Forecaster Tool. Allowing developers to calculate Lifetime Value (LTV) of mobile apps, helping establish if they can grow their app business using mobile advertising. The tool has proven to be an invaluable free resource for thousands of developers.
