Ngmoco CEO Has Praise for the iPad; Addresses Developer Challenges

Mon, Feb 8, 2010

iPad, iPhone, Mobile

You may not know of Ngmoco by its name, but the company is behind some pretty successful iPhone games like Maze Finger, Star Defense, and Doctor Awesome, just to name a few.

Ngmoco knows the world of mobile gaming – they know how to make games that are easily accessible to fans regardless of skill level, and are already looking ahead to what the future holds for the industry.

This was made clear in a recent interview Inside Social Games held with Ngmoco’s CEO Neil Young, who discussed the future of mobile gaming, what the iPad means to companies like his, and the role monetization will play in it all.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Inside Social Games: I feel like I have to ask: What’s your view on the iPad? And on Google’s new Nexus One?

Neil Young: I’m very bullish on the iPad. The negative commentary I read on the internet reminds me of when the iPod came out. I think real humans will be amazed with the iPad. It’s going to be a very important computing device, and potentially the death of the netbook. In a couple year’s time it’ll be huge.

For a complete look at what Young had to say, be sure to check out the full interview.
