Smartphone and tablet stats – what’s really going on. A round-up by Stuart Dredge in The Guardian. Worth a read to get to grips with what the analysts are predicting.
I spotted this graph tweeted by @millsustwo showing their app sales for the last two weeks in July this year. The reason for sharing this is because UsTwo is regarded as a successful mobile app studio in London yet their sales figures from this image are somewhat mediocre and that is not a word I associate with the work coming out of UsTwo. Is this now the reality for iPhone apps? Is the gold rush over? Is this a reality check? Is it any different on any other platforms.
