The £6.5 billion apps industry
The vast majority of apps don't take off, but those that do have created an industry that earns more than Hollywood.

The advantage that apps have is that they are relatively low budget to create, when compared to a film, so success can be very profitable. Wired Magazine estimated that Angry Birds cost $140k to make and netted Finnish mobile phone company $70 million.

Apple now has more than 1 million apps in the apps store and estimates that more than 60 billion have been downloaded.

Managing Director of Lens Digital Limited. This new start up is about excellent content for niche websites and increasing the amplification of our members through intelligent use of social media.
