Report: Apple App Store and Google Play revenues grow in Q1
According to the latest App Annie report, people spent a good amount of time on smart phones in the first quarter. The reason for this is the outbreak of the first-quarter COW-19 global outbreak, which has caused people to be confined to their homes and hence their use of mobile.
