Mobile Gaming on the Increase Part 3

I have a confession to make… I own an iPhone and I’m addicted to downloading games! They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem… so… there you go, world! I’ve admitted it.

I spend so much of my time commuting to and from work, and visiting family and friends, all using public transit. This means I am often bored and looking for something to entertain me, and downloading games helps immensely.

I also know I am not alone in my mobile gaming addiction… Not least of all because I see fellow commuters stuck to their phones (I swear, I’m not the only one). I looked it up – 80% of all mobile downloads worldwide are games! Guess it explains the Angry Birds craze a few years back…

The mobile industry is now full of app and game designers trying to find a niche in the mobile gaming market. What is the market missing? What can we do that’s different?

To me, the best mobile gaming experience on the market is AppGear. Why? For starters, they’ve taken mobile gaming to a whole new level. They don’t constrain the user to the real world and have taken the concept of gaming one step further by combining physical toys with augmented reality to enhance the users’ gaming experience. I often sit on the bus and see fellow commuters as aliens and shoot at them through my iPhone screen!

What other games on your mobile device allow you to transform into a zombie, fly a plane, capture escaping aliens or fight as an Elite Commander?
