Kakao Lets Android Comes First Before iOS

20140428105351_6551

Kakao deleted a regulation that enforces a game on ‘Play Kakao Games’ to be released on both Google Play and Apple Appstore. The change will be made by May 1.

Kakao implemented the regulation in March 2013 in order for players from both Android and iOS to play altogether at the same time. But this regulation came to the developers as money and time waste because they were forced to develop the game for both platforms simultaneously.

The change is made because Apple’s long review on a game brought a delay in release at once. If a game is rejected from a 2-week-long review of Apple Appstore, another 2 weeks takes to get reviewed.

Considering that iOS only takes 5~10% market share in South Korea, it’s really inefficient for the developers. “We deleted it in order to ease off our partners’ burden of releasing both platforms at the same day. But a game for iOS should still be available,” said Kakao.

Six of Top 10 Android games from Korea

Korea and Japan dominate Android Market. 6 of TOP 10 games for Andorid are from Korea. Based on Google Play Revenue ranking, Korea and Japan are selected as the fastest growing countries. Especially, 95% the total revenue at Google Play Store in Korea comes from games category.
Puzzle & Dragons from Gungho Online was #1 on February while Cha Cha Cha of CJ E&M took 2nd, Windrunner of Wemade was 3rd. Among 6 Korean Android games, 4 of them have been published through KAKAO Talk.
However, no Korean mobile games have been listed on iOS top 10 games. The reason why Korean mobile games are strong at Android market could be founded on the domestic mobile environment. Android occupied 80% of Korean mobile market with the world most famous Android mobile phone manufacture – Samsung.
