The mobile app analytics company Flurry has been busy working on some interesting statistics and data about where app companies originated from before transitioning to work on iPhone applications. VentureBeat has posted the analysis and here is a brief summary of the results.
Online or web companies took 22%, 20% are companies that were started with the specific purpose to work on the iPhone, 19% came from traditional gaming companies, 17% were traditional media companies, another 17% was retail companies and just 5% were traditional mobile companies.
These statistics show that just about everyone wants a piece of the iPhone pie no matter where they came from or what they were used to doing. I would say it’s a very smart move as our society continually moves into a more mobile environment.
