King leads the pack when it comes to the top Facebook developers. According to AppData, the social gaming company had an average of 93.5 million daily active users (DAUs), giving it over 23 percent of the market in March of 2014. Microsoft had about 26.6 million DAUs in the same time frame with nearly seven percent of the market. It was followed by Zynga (18.2 million DAUs), Spotify (12.4 million DAUs) and Supercell (11.3 million DAUs).
In March of last year, Zynga was on top. The company had over twice as many DAUs as it does now. King had 27.4 million DAUs, over three times fewer than it does now – what a difference a year can make. Both Microsoft and Spotify had year-over-year growth, while HTC Sense dropped out of the top five. Supercell wasn’t even in the top 200 apps in March of 2013. It is now number five and approaching three percent market share.
Do you think King will be able to avoid Zynga’s fate?
