Humble Bundle Data Finds Android Customers More Generous than Windows or Mac

Here’s an interesting statistic for your day. For quite a while now, numerous blogs have ragged on Android users and their unwillingness to pay for apps. The Humble Bundle cites these blog posts, saying that,

“[they] brand Android users as “cheap pessimists” and disproportionally resistant to spend money on apps when compared to other platforms, especially when it comes to games.”

The Humble Bundle team has made an interesting discovery though. During the Humble Bundle 2 sale, they have been conducting an informal experiment, asking users to check a box if they are on Android. The team was looking for a platform breakdown. What they found surprised them.

“Android users are actually pretty generous, to the tune of a $7.43 average purchase price. This puts Android users well-above Windows ($5.73) slightly above Mac ($7.02), but below the still mighty Linux ($9.92).”

This goes completely counter to the Android user stereotype of being too cheap to pay for apps. Rather, make good apps and they will come apparently, and these are pretty good games by the way. Be sure to grab them from the Humble Bundle before the sale ends in 5 days.
