In recent past, there have been many discussions on various blogs about which platform is better; Android or iOS. In my opinion it does not matter which platform is better as both seem to be pretty close performance wise.

But revenues for Apple and Google will not come only from the sale of devices but from the apps purchased on it. One of the biggest money earners on both platforms are gaming apps.

So who is winning the Gaming market between iOS and Android? This infographic by App Annie, shows the differences between revenues and also the strengths of the two platforms.

It is interesting to note that iOS has 71% of the revenues compared to 29% by Android. This is probably due to Apple iPad being a market leader while Android has not really tasted success on the tablet front. Also tablets users seem to like playing games more than phone users on an average.

Amazing Alex – Rovio releases a new game title for iOS and Android

Posted: 13 Jul 2012 10:30 PM PDT

While I personally didn’t like Angry Birds Space, it did take off with 100 million downloads and now Rovio releases a new physics puzzle based game; Amazing Alex – that’s so good of Rovio to not extend the Angry Birds series, because it was getting really boring, at least for me.

The game, Amazing Alex, introduces a new character named Alex who is a master at creating chain reactions to complete the goal. In short, you got to make pathways using objects given, which completes the task. For example, a ball rolling into a basket.

The graphics are pretty neat and gameplay is good, too. Except that, it’s a bit of pain if you’re playing the game on a small display. The game also allows you to make your own levels and share it with your friends. The iOS app is retina ready, i.e. the game will be more enjoyable on the new iPad.

Amazing Alex Trailer

Here’s the official trailer by Rovio.

There’s a trial version on the Playstore, which is of course free. The full version costs 0.99$, on Playstore as well as Appstore. I think they will port this to Mac and PC too, and as far as Windows Phone is concerned, no one really knows as it did not even get Angry Birds Space till now.
