Gameloft's titles have been much higher earners on Apple's portable device according to Rochefort, as he revealed "We are selling 400 times more games on iPhone than on Android." The problem has been Google's ability to get the phone in customers, as Rochefort stated "Google has not been very good to entice customers to actually buy products."
