These Kindle App Rankings are a mix of January 10th app rankings (for the Top 10) and January 8th Kindle App Rankings for the rest.
Kindle App Rankings for January 2011 – Top 10
All these apps are available in the Kindle App section of the Kindle Store –
- Scrabble at #7.
- Match Genius at #20.
- Solitaire at #20.
- Maze a Thon at #42.
- Anywhere Abs at #47.
- NY Times Crosswords #1 at #49.
- Monopoly at #50.
- Mahjong Solitaire at #68.
- Sudoku at #93.
- Texas Hold’em at #161.
It’s interesting that as soon as the EA half-price sale ended its apps dropped dramatically in sales rank. It had 3 apps in the top 10, including Scrabble at #1, and now those 3 are at the 7th, 20th, and 93rd spots.
Kindle App Rankings for January 2011 – Kindle Apps outside the Top 100
These are all app rankings as of January 8th. These are also available at the link listed above -
- Slingo at #169.
- Hangman 4 Kids at #273.
- Hangman at #446.
- NY Times Crosswords Vol. 2 at #448.
- Wordoku Unbound at #514.
- Triple Town at #559.
- Dusk World at #752.
- NY Times Crosswords Vol. 3 at #825.
- Jumble 200 at #908.
- Jumble 50 at #1,193.
- Next at #1,239.
- Choice of the Dragon at #1,810.
- Panda Poet is #1,904.
- Jumble 20 at #2,166.
- NY Times Crosswords Vol. 4 at #4,318.
- Choice of Broadsides at #5,191.
It’s pretty clear that once Kindle Apps exit the top 100 they drop very quickly. Also, there doesn’t seem to be a ton of interest in the Kindle Apps outside the Top 100. At sales rank #500 we’re talking about 50 or so sales a day. That would mean apps like Jumble 200 and Next and Panda Poet are seeing 20 to 40 sales a day.
Kindle App Rankings for Free Kindle Apps
Here are the top free Kindle Apps -
- Every Word at #1 in the free rankings.
- Blackjack at #7 in the free rankings.
- Shuffled Row at #15 in the free rankings.
- Minesweeper at #33 in the free rankings.
- Jumble 3 at #50 in the free rankings.
It’s interesting that Every Word and Shuffled Row are still doing so well. They were released a really, really long time back.
What’s a List of Links doing at #99?
A collection of links to sites that have games playable in the Kindle’s browser, Mega Game Pack, is at #99. The reviews complain that a lot of the games aren’t really playable in the Kindle browser.
It’s interesting that a collection of links has made it all the way to the Top 100.
