On Wednesday, May 8, 2011 Peter Farago, Vice President of Marketing for Flurry, took Anthem & Schawk through their unique view of the Apps Ecosystem by the numbers. Flurry earns their perspective by powering the analytics aggregated on nearly 1/4 of the apps in AppsStore. Included are trending data on demographics, devices/platforms, types of apps and a look at key issues in going to market. It's early days in what's already shaping up to be a significant market that's threatening to disrupt every industry and medium.

  • The Importance of Developers…
    I will emotionally immerse,
    empower, surprise, delight,
    entertain, save time for, make more productive, inform,
    educate, socially connect,
    romantically intrigue and make life better for your customers…
  • … to Platform Providers
    …if I only have to build once, control my assets, get approved in 1 week, reach 100M+ devices, know consumers can and will buy, get consumers to notice and try my apps, keep most of the money, monitor my own business and can adjust on the fly.
