iTunes Top Grossing Charts Summed Up

The top 150 can be summed up to, with outliers pulled out to highlight:

  1. “Free” to play – so free they are top grossing, strategy here seems to be “Pay-to-cheat”
  2. Subscription based media services (music and video)
  3. Dating apps – subscription based i assume
  4. Minecraft
  5. Linkedin?
  6. Calling & chat apps – recharge minutes?
  7. Highend News – WSJ, NYT
  8. ABCmouse – exceptional educational app
  9. MileIQ – mileage tracker

kind of disappointing but a view into cultural psyche and what people are willing to pay for.
