App Annie Index Playing Cards: The Data Behind The Cards


Introducing the App Annie Index top 52 publishers of 2012

This never-before-seen data is the basis of our App Annie Index playing cards. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did creating it for you.

Last year, we launched our App Annie All-Star collection trading cards, which provided stats on the top grossing 50 publishers of 2011, based on worldwide iOS revenue.

Using the advanced market data we have from App Annie Intelligence, and new Google Play data we collected in 2012, we've taken things further this year!

Based on total 2012 grossing revenue for iOS and Google Play worldwide, we present you with the movers and shakers of the app publishing world, in the form of a premium collection of App Annie Index branded playing cards that you can enjoy with all your friends!

For your reference, here is the exclusive list of the top 52 grossing publishers listed on the cards:
