3. Failure Factor
High expectations App Store telah menjadi lebih dari lotre, dan kurangnya kesempatan bagi pengembang kecil untuk berhasil dibanding dengan perusahaan besar. App Promo Developer yg berani mengeluarkan uang untuk promosi lebih berhasil ketimbang yang tidak mengeluarkan uang sama sekali. Discoverability, App demos, and Marketing Sulit untuk menjadi hasil pencarian nomor satu bahkan ketika nama app yang sama persis untuk istilah pencarian. Apple masih perlu untuk menawarkan semacam demo untuk app berbayar.

4. Competitor
Devices, Operating System and Game Development iOs memiliki spec yang rata-rata sama, sedangkan pada Android terdapat banyak sekali spec dengan hardware yang berbeda-beda jenisnya. Making Money: Android Vs. iOS Android memiliki 750.000 aplikasi dan iOS memiliki 900.000, Pengguna Android suka aplikasi gratisan. iOs memiliki lebih banyak pengguna yang loyal. Submission, Promotion and Marketing Android menawarkan transparansi dan kemudahan akses ke data. Selain itu, pengembang Android dapat menjawab review di aplikasi mereka sesuatu yang Apple tidak membiarkan pengembangnya lakukan. Bottomline Ketika akan mengembangkan game yg menguntungkan, sebagian besar pengembang menggantungkan harapan mereka pada iOS. Perangkat dan sistem operasi fragmentasi, pembajakan, dan keengganan pengguna Android mengeluarkan uang untuk game mobile yang membuat pengembangan game Android mundur.
