Emerging top grossing iOS apps: DragonVale, Dragon Story and Slotomatia

Backflip Studios claims the No. 1 spot on both the iPhone and iPad top grossing charts for the second week in a row with it’s animal care game DragonVale. The app has been one of the steadiest performers on the iOS charts in 2012. According to AppData the game hasn’t dropped below No. 6 on the top grossing iPhone app chart and No. 10 on the top grossing iPad app charts since Jan. 1.

TeamLava’s answer to DragonVale, its similarly themed Dragon Story, also performs well this week, climbing two spots to No. 12 on the top grossing iPhone charts.

Playtika had a strong week too, taking the No. 3 spot on the top grossing iPhone charts with its game Slotomania, and the No. 2 spot on the iPad charts with Slotomania HD. The non-HD version of Slotomania was also the No. 11 highest grossing iPad app. The consistent performance of Playtika’s standard resolution iPhone app on the iPad charts makes a compelling argument against universal apps for developers wishing to maximize their revenues.
