WHAT’S THIS ABOUT
Launched in 2009, Angry Birds has truly stood the test of time when it comes to both its fans
and, today, its shareholders. Priced at just £0.99 this app has been downloaded a mammoth 2
billion times which equates to a life-changing sum for the app developers who originally
foresaw Angry Birds to be their first foray into the gaming market. These developers, Rovio
Entertainment, have today been long considered the world-respected granddaddies of the
Smartphone arcade gaming world.
WhatsApp may have struggled over the years to transition from free to paid app,
however this move seems to have finally paid off as it now stands at an impressive
number six of the most downloaded of apps of all time with a 12 month free trial
period for users as standard.
Today WhatsApp is worth $19 billion (although this figure is based upon the
amount paid by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2014), and actually
amounts to a staggering $42 for each and every WhatsApp user [Forbes 2014]).
Thought that Instagram would be the most lucrative snap app of all time? Think
again. Camera+ is the proud owner of this much lusted after title with over 10
million apps sold at a price of $0.99 each.
The 1Weather app is a free app to download with an impressive number of
features that include all that the average Joe needs to know about the weather
from around the world. This includes temperature, precipitation forecast, Doppler
radar, widget, daydream, DashClock and Android Wear support, and even the
current phases of the sun and moon!

are, as well as one in which there exists serious money to be made for the right
