Mobile apps did not exist until 2008 when the App Store was first introduced. At the launch, users only had over 500 apps to download and enjoy. Fast forward a decade later, the App Store and Google Play have a combined library of over 4 million titles.
Along with the widespread embrace of mobile technology has come the development of an “apps culture.” Fueling the booming app economy today are game apps. According to App Annie’s App Monetization report, in 2015 alone, game apps generated a whopping 66 percent of global revenue in the entire app economy. And it’s expected they will continue to do so in the future. By 2020, global mobile app revenues are expected to grow to US$188.9 billion.
The explosion of mobile apps has changed how companies do business and how humans behave. The app business is growing and evolving rapidly. Keep a close eye on the development of this economy with insights from the most trusted app intelligence platform, App Annie, on November 24.
