As you probably know, the Apple iTunes revolutionized the music industry and later the smartphone industry by creating an app ecosystem.
It’s true that Google’s Play Store revenues are soaring high as Android devices now outsell iOS devices. But when it comes to revenues Apple App Store is still dominating and analysts don’t expect Google to overtake Apple until 2016.
Now if you’re a blogger who reviews apps for smartphones and tablets on your blog then you can make money by joining the iTunes affiliate program. Google Play Store doesn’t have an affiliate program yet but you can join the iTunes partner program and review apps (and much more) for Mac and iOS devices.
The iTunes Store, App Store, Mac App Store, and iBookstore feature thousands of apps, songs, movies, music videos, tv shows, games, podcasts, books, gift certificates, etc. for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod) and Mac.
