Mobile apps have become a ubiquitous part of the digital landscape with the emergence of multiple mobile platforms and the dominance of mobile as the global platform of choice. The possibility of generating revenue streams with relatively little initial investment by developing, launching, and monetizing an app that goes viral is in reach of virtually every entrepreneur who can develop a mobile app.
