Mobile gaming apps – additional information

A mobile game refers to any video game that is played on any mobile device including phones, tablets, media players and even calculators. The industry has come a long way since the days of Tetris and Snake.
Mobile gaming is an important sector for the larger video gaming industry both worldwide and domestically. Both the realized and estimated mobile gaming revenue for the United States market has been calculated from 2010 to 2017. In 2012, revenue from mobile gaming in the U.S. reached 314 million U.S. dollars. A year later, in 2011, this figure had risen to 559 million U.S. dollars. By 2017, forecasters expected the mobile gaming revenue in the U.S. to reach an astonishing 3.77 billion U.S. dollars.
In February 2014, the most popular Apple App Store categories were measured by percentage of all downloads. During that month, gaming apps were the most downloaded category with 40.6 percent of all app downloads. Gaming surpassed all other categories by more than 30 percent, demonstrating the popularity of mobile gaming downloads made from the Apple App Store.
