After writing my previous post on alternative Android markets, I went back and took a closer look at all the marketplaces where I had listed my games. I found a few that I had overlooked for a couple of reasons:
- I couldn’t find the page which showed me download statistics. This was mostly my stupidity / laziness, because for at least one of them, the statistics page was right in front of me
- The default statistics only showed downloads over the last month. Again, my mistake for not noticing this
So I decided to do a better job of collecting data, to be sure that I’m not discounting a marketplace where I’m getting decent downloads. The table below lists the marketplaces that I’ve found interesting, along with download statistics for each one. I also listed the date on which I published the game on any market (since that varies quite a bit), and calculated an average ‘downloads per day’ for each market, so I can compare them more or less apples-to-apples.
