Looks like Android users anticipating Temple Run need to wait a bit longer for the release on to the Android Market. Though we anticipated a late February release, we now have news that the Android version would be available sometime in March. On the official Facebook Page, the developers have said that the development of the Android game is taking longer than usual. According to them, the game is in Beta testing and would soon be hitting the Android Market but no date has been set as of now.

Looks like the Android Market is in for some serious competition! Application Analytics firm, Distimo has revealed that Android developers are gaining more from the Amazon App Store than Google’s own Android Market. The Amazon App store may have relatively a small number of Android Applications but this is has helped developers make more profit than the Android Market.
Distimo’s report stated that “Of all the applications that are available in both stores, 110 applications generated at least $200 each day in one of the stores during the last week of January. 42 of these applications generated more revenue in the Amazon Appstore than in Google Android Market. Of the total income these 110 applications generated in both stores, 28% was generated in the Amazon Appstore.”
Another key finding was that there are more paid Android Apps in the Amazon App Store than the Android Market. The percentage of paid apps in the Amazon App Store is around 65% which has been stable for a while now. But comparatively, in the Android Market the percentage of paid applications have declined from 38% to 32% in the store.
