According to Anime News Network, “analytics company Slice Intelligence reported earlier this month that the number of paying players in the U.S. peaked on July 15 and has since dropped 79 percent.”

Sensor Tower also reports that of the most top-grossing apps in the U.S. iPhone app store, Clash of Clans ranks first at 347 consecutive days, then Candy Crush at 109 days, and then Pokémon GO at 74 days.


However, Pokémon GO remains the top-grossing app on the iPhone store for eight other countries, such as Australia, Great Britain, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, and Thailand. In the U.S. Google Play store, the game remains the top-grossing app.
