Also on Google Play (Android) and the Amazon Marketplace (Kindle) the game became a massive hit in number of downloads.

My Opinion?
Not only for games, music and movie companies mobile is the next gateway to content, friends, brands, games and shopping.

Also brands can create engaging branded mobile games that will engage massive audiences with your brand and product. This can apply to travel, retail, car, consumer electronica and tech brands.

Make a cool quiz or game and attract consumers, or use it to score, award and reward your employees when succeeding the test on their mobiles.

A social media policy test could benefit every brand in the word. It takes only one ignorant employee to mess up your most valuable asset: your brand.
