Top mobile games rank stolen from Candy Crush

That lead position has now been handed over to Fallout 4, which has managed to do what many thought was impossible.

It was starting to feel as though Candy Crush would be holding the title of the leader of mobile games until the end of time, considering that this is a tremendously popular app and it has been leading the way for about as long as the majority of us (considering that we have the attention span and short-term memories of goldfish) can remember.

But the crown appears to have been stolen from King, the developer of Candy Crush, as its lead has been overtaken.

The Apple Store is now showing that in terms of the number of downloads, the top spot among mobile games is no longer held by Candy Crush. The long awaited console simulation, Fallout 4 has now bumped Candy Crush out of the top three games in the United Kingdom for the first time since King.com released the addictive casual gaming app about three years ago.

The competition among mobile games has never been more fierce, with millions of dollars in daily revenues at stake.

Mobile Games - Candy Crush loses top spotThe companion mobile game app Fallout Shelter iOS, from Bethesda, has been created to give players the experience of being in control of a nuclear bunker. It was just released in mid June and has now already climbed high enough to knock Candy Crush out of the coveted top 3 leading positions among game apps, and has pushed it into the fourth spot.

While this can’t be good news for the publishers of Candy Crush, it certainly can’t come as too much of a disappointment to them, since they are still bringing in an estimated $2.36 million every day. Both of those titles continue to sit behind the apps that have been in the first and second spots, Clash of Clans and Game of War: Fire Age, respectively.

That said, while Fallout 4 has shown that it has been able to climb to a top position extremely quickly, what has yet to be seen is if it will be among the mobile games that will be able to hold onto one of those leading spots. Candy Crush has a kind of durability that others have failed to maintain when they have attempted to compete with it in the past.

Apple Watch can be purchased only by way of reservations

The Apple Store will not be selling these smartwatches directly to consumers, as many had expected.

An official announcement was recently made that revealed that people who had been hoping to make a direct purchase of the Apple Watch may be disappointed as the company will be using a reservation system instead of sending it out to the retail store shelves.

The smartwatches will not be making their way to the shelves of the Apple Store to be picked up by consumers.

Instead, the only thing that will be possible for consumers to make in-store will be to make reservations for the Apple Watch devices that they want. This will involve a unique reservation system that will open up on April 10. It will make it possible for customers to reserve the model that they want and then pick up the smartwatch device at the Apple Store of their choice once it becomes available on April 24.

The reservations for the Apple Watch need to be made with a representative of the company’s retail stores.

Apple - Apple WatchMaking the appointment gives consumers the opportunity to try out the smartwatch for themselves before they make the reservations to actually purchase one. While this may lead to disappointment for those who had hoped to make their purchase within the actual retail stores, the hope is that they will feel more confident in selecting the model that they want when they reserve it online, particularly after trying it out with a store rep.

Apple has made this decision to be able to ensure that they will have enough stock of the models that the customers want, when they begin their shipments. This way, shoppers won’t end up having to face letdowns when the model that they want goes out of stock in the retail stores where they want to buy them.

The Apple Watch reservation system will provide the company with the reaction time that is needed to ensure that it will be able to keep all of the stock dispatch issues sorted out. The pre-orders for the smartwatches will begin in the United States, as well as Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, and Japan.
