Netflix’s iPhone app topped Apple’s list of top-grossing apps for the first time Monday, surpassing not only mobile games like “Mobile Strike” and “Candy Crush Saga,” but also fellow subscription services like Spotify and Pandora. The news comes on the heels of Netflix adding mobile downloading capabilities to its iOS and Android apps.
In addition to being the top app in the U.S., it also occupies the No. 1 grossing spot on iPhone in India, Mexico, and Colombia. Netflix’s app is free to download in the Apple App Store, but the company started to offer users the ability to pay for their monthly subscription fees via in-app subscription fees a little over a year ago.
