    The iOS App Store is projected to remain the single most lucrative app store through the forecast period, generating more than $60 billion in gross consumer spend in 2021. However, the combined consumer spend on Google Play and third-party Android stores is expected to overtake it in 2017 thanks to their dominant smart device market share and strong installed base growth

    Sincere congrats to Google and android when this happens, but the fact that they operate on very different business models and that the Play store is still catching up to the App Store is a real testament to Apple.
