While I agree that developers are still earning more out of sales through iOS, your logic doesn't necessarily hold true. It would be perfectly possible for the Play Store to earn a quarter of the revenue with the same number of apps if it had only a quarter of the number of paid apps.

Given that we know that ad-supported apps are much more prevalent on Android, it's possible that the disparity in revenue between the two platforms for a particular paid app is closing.
