Gaming dominates mobile devices in December

With the advent of bigger, faster and more affordable smart devices, mobile gaming has become the most popular activity for smartphone and tablet users. This popularity is reflected in the growth of Jumptap’s Gaming Channel, a premium collection of addictive apps including Words with Friends and Angry Birds.
"Mobile gamers are not just teenagers, but busy professionals, moms and dads, and grandparents," says Matt Duffy, vice president of Marketing, Jumptap. "As gaming traffic grows on our network, advertisers gain scalable ways to reach specific audience segments of any age or demographic."
