Pocket Casts on Android has outsold the iOS version historically
at about 5:1. That means for every 1 iOS version we’ve sold, 5
were sold on Android. The Android version also costs $1 more, so
we’re making more per transaction as well. The reasons for this
are a blog post on their own, but it’s a fact.
On Android there is no native podcasting solution, and we see a
massive potential to fill that space. There are other apps out
there, but we feel we have what it takes to become the dominant
podcasting app on that platform.
Makes sense, given that they’re making significantly more money from the Android version. That’s not a story you hear often, though. (Via Benedikt Winkelmayer.)
