Yes, I know a lot of you bemoan the fact that Google Play requires a credit card to sign up for, but it does give FCM some good exposure. Most folks with Android devices will inevitably sign up for Play for buying something. An app, a book, something!
Anyway, to prove a point, and because I had nothing better to do yesterday afternoon, here are some download figures for FCM:
Even when it’s free Play still calls it a purchase. When looking at the above figures, remember that some issues have been up longer than others. So, having #91 or #92 low on the list isn’t surprising since the other issues have been available for longer.
This one shows which country has the most downloads for each issue. The US then UK hold the top spots (respectively) while the rest are up for grabs.
