Apple iOS racks up 5 million game downloads per day

Apple's iPhone and iPad lead iOS game download push

Apple’s iOS App Store sees more than 5 million games downloaded per day as iPhone and iPad users look to fill their devices with gaming goodies, new figures have revealed.

Having recently received an award from the Guinness Book of World Records for having the ‘largest downloadable video game store’ in history, Apple is now reported to be totting up more than 5 million gaming app downloads per day across the US and EU markets.

Compiled by Distimo and Newzoo, the new figures have revealed that of the 5 million daily downloads, 88 per cent of these gaming apps are in the form of free-to-download content with just 12 per cent being paid for.

Further revelations from the compiled data showed that 90 per cent of the gaming downloads are made by iPhone touting iOS users, 9 per cent coming from iPad owners and a single per cent in the form of Mac App downloads.
