It can be classified as a wise move on Microsoft’s part to open up its productivity apps on all mobile platforms other than OS such as Apple’s iOS and it seems to be paying off well. I4U published a reportbased on Sensor Tower’s analytics, which indicates that Microsoft is actually doing well when it comes to its Office apps.
The stats published by I4U indicate that Microsoft Word turned out to be the top performer in the US in terms of productivity apps revenue from Apple App Store and Google Play Store. It generated around $596,000 in the US and $868, 000 worldwide in May. Microsoft bragged the second spot for top revenue as well, with Microsoft Excel raking in $363,000. Dropbox is a close second in terms of revenue when it comes to productivity apps.
However when it comes to download rankings in productivity apps, Microsoft isn’t in the top five, in fact it is placed sixth behind Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Dropbox, Google Drive, and iDownloads Manager. Microsoft Excel fares far worse in terms of downloads and is placed at number 10 in the US. >more
