According to Piper, Android Market (GOOG) has generated 93% less app sale revenue for developers than the App Store (AAPL). While not a perfect comparison, given the App Store's head start, and the greater reliance of Android apps on ads, the data is still in-line with existing commentary about the App Store's monetization edge - an edge which could keep it the preferred platform for many developers, in spite of Android's runaway growth.

    I'd be more interested in knowing how sales for a given app, a popular one that exits on both platforms stacks up for each platform.

     

    For reference, Apple only commands 1.6% of the worldwide desktop OS revenue, but there's certainly success to be had writing Mac software.
