About the Methodology
The App Annie Top 52 is comprised of the highest 52 earners by combined iOS App Store and Google Play revenue from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017. Revenue rankings are based on revenue earned from paid downloads and in-app purchases on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. The rankings do not include revenue earned outside of the app stores; revenue from in-app advertising, web subscriptions and mobile commerce are excluded.

We source our data from the App Annie Intelligence Platform, which generates the industry's most accurate market estimates for the app stores. Additionally, our proprietary DNA technology enables us and our customers to get a company-level estimate to create the rankings, which are inclusive of companies' subsidiaries.
