Frozen Free Fall

Disney Interactive’s match-three puzzle game Frozen Free Fall has been downloaded more than 100 million times on mobile devices. A new version of the game launches this week on console and PC, and to celebrate, Disney has released an infographic highlighting some of the game’s stats on mobile devices.

Frozen Free Fall sees players completing level-based match-three puzzles as they interact with popular characters from the film, including Anna, Elsa and Olaf. Each level has a different goal, and players can use power-ups to help them complete tricky stages. Elsa’s power alone has been used more than 162 million times to break ice crystals on the board.

Since Frozen Free Fall was released in late 2013, players around the world have completed 25 billion levels in total. Altogether, players have spent 62 billion minutes playing the game so far, which is more than the total amount of time people spent watching the Frozen film in theaters.

In mid-2014, Frozen Free Fall was updated with a special Summer map of levels which players could complete with Olaf. Since the update’s release, Olaf has spent 1.6 billion minutes in these summer levels.

Frozen Free Fall is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store, Google Play, the Windows Phone Store and the Amazon Appstore.

A new version of the game, Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight, launches this week on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Steam. The game offers 195 free levels, as well as a multiplayer mode for competing with friends.

Report: Google Play Downloads 85 Percent Higher Than iOS

App Annie

Mobile app intelligence platform App Annie has released its Market Q2 2015 index, measuring downloads and revenue across iOS and Android devices worldwide. The quarter saw Google Play extend its lead over iOS in terms of worldwide downloads, with Google Play’s downloads being approximately 85 percent higher than iOS App Store downloads. This is an increase from the 70 percent difference in Q1 2015.

App Annie attributes this change to increased smartphone ownership in emerging markets, and the availability of affordable Android devices. However, worldwide revenue for Q2 2015 still heavily favors iOS, with iOS App Store revenue about 70 percent higher than Google Play’s for the quarter.

In terms of app usage, social networking apps had the highest usage on iOS in the U.S. for the quarter, while entertainment apps had the highest session duration. On Android in the U.S., social and entertainment apps led for total usage and session duration, respectively.

Video streaming apps specifically had a great quarter, with HBO Now and Hulu leading revenue growth in the U.S., and apps for Youku, iQIYI and Tencent Video dominating the top five spots for monthly active users in iOS entertainment apps in China.

The report reads:

China’s video streaming apps certainly seem to be in position to catalyze cord-cutting. With smartphones and tablets quickly becoming the primary consumption devices for younger demographics, they could even spawn an entire generation of cord-skippers.

China led the quarter for overall downloads on iOS in Q2 2015, ahead of the U.S., Japan, U.K. and Russia, while the U.S. topped the iOS chart for revenue. China came in third for iOS revenue for the quarter.

On Google Play, the U.S. topped the downloads chart, beating Brazil, India, Russia and Mexico. In terms of Google Play revenue, Japan leads the United States, which was in second for the quarter. Finally, games led all other categories for both downloads and revenue on iOS and Android.
