Are Games the future of the app economy? – Mobile Dev Memo

What’s perhaps more interesting than these particular snapshots is the ability for non-gaming apps to rocket up the Top Grossing list in conjunction with specific events. For instance, both the Netflix and HBO Now apps jumped in the Top Grossing ranks (US, iPhone) just ahead of Black Friday, and Apple even rolled out a new app category ahead of the commercial “holiday”. Incredibly, the YouTube app jumped 32 places to the Top 4 Grossing position (US, iPhone) on Cyber Monday (November 30th).
