The Mobile Gaming Infographic Proves There is Money to be Made

The Mobile Gaming Infographic shows that as technology grows and as one can do just about anything on their phone, most people spend their time playing games. Even though a smartphone has access to local weather, social media, music and maps, games are the most popular application that users interact with.

Entrepreneurs should take note of this graph because in 2011, mobile gaming raked in $12 billion. There is also room to make money just off of advertising. The popular phone game Angry Birds makes $6 million per month just from advertisements. It has also been downloaded 700 million times. By 2016, the smartphone industry is expected to double so now is the time to jump in and benefit from this massive opportunity.
