App Annie and IDC Present a New Report — Games and Hollywood: The Perks and Pitfalls of Transmedia Development

App Annie is pleased to announce the release of a new in-depth report focused on the gaming and entertainment industry. The new report titled, “Games & Hollywood: The Perks & Pitfalls of Transmedia Development,” was created in partnership with the International Data Corporation (IDC) and examines the rise of cross-channel entertainment and the ever-evolving relationship between mobile, games and movies. This report will also be presented at E3 2014, at a special panel discussion hosted by App Annie on June 12.

  • Recent releases, animated films and city-building games were well-represented among top smartphone/tablet apps
