Mobile Apps Market Research and Share in US 2014 By ResearchMoz

Most up-to-date research on "Mobile Apps - US - October 2014" to its huge collection of research reports.

The majority of mobile app users do not download paid apps, while the abundance of free apps now available has filled mobile marketplaces with a plethora of options. Getting consumers engaged with an app is only half the battle – drawing revenue from that engagement may be an even greater challenge. While mobile apps can focus on users who are most likely to pay for features, the value of free users should not be ignored, as these consumers will help to build awareness among their friends and other connections.
