2009 was a good year for the iPhone and the App Store, but also a good year for mobile developer Gameloft, which announced total sales of nearly £107 million, of which a sizable chunk was attributed to purchases made by owners of the iPhone or iPod touch.
The revenues generated from the App Store were considerably higher for Gameloft in 2009 than they had been in 2008, with a 231 per cent rise quoted by the firm themselves.
Overall, experts believe that revenue generated by mobile games rose by 12 per cent last year, which is good news for everyone in the business.
Gameloft made £6.1 million in the final three months of 2009, which vastly exceeded previous projections of around £3.8 million which had been forecast earlier in the year.
The growth of the App Store does not seem to be slowing down at all and thus Gameloft and other third party developers are likely to see continued windfalls over the coming months.
