Analyst Horace Dediu is pointing out that iOS apps generated more revenue than U.S. showings of Holllywood movies in 2014. According to Apple, its developers earned $10 billion last year. Because Apple takes a 30 percent cut, that brings the total revenue generated by the App Store to $14.3 billion. By comparison, Hollywood movies generated about $10 billion at U.S. theaters.
