COLOGNE, GERMANY - FEBRUARY 19, 2014 — Peggy Anne Salz, Gigaom Research mobile analyst and industry authority, today announced a new, free book to help developers improve their chances of success across all the stages of their app business. Apponomics - The Insider's Guide to a Billion Dollar App Business is produced in conjunction with InMobi, the world's largest independent mobile advertising company and will debut at the 2014 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, on February 24, 2014.

The comprehensive 300+ page guide draws from dozens of real world case studies, developer interviews, and in-depth research to help developers make the right choices at every stage of the app life-cycle. From app discovery and distribution to user acquisition, and from monetization and to lasting loyalty, Apponomics equips app developers with the practical advice and expert insights to compete — and win — in the competitive app marketplace.

Apponomics marks the first time InMobi has chosen to share its six years of invaluable insights on the app business, and is the second app book from Salz, who was also the lead author on The Everything Guide to Mobile Apps: A Practical Guide to Affordable Mobile App Development for Your Business (F+W Media Inc.).

"With mobile app downloads pegged to reach 269 billion in 2017, up from 102 billion in 2013, the market is massive, and the competition is tough, " Salz observes.

At InMobi, our customers range from large developer studios that make hundreds of millions of dollars annually, to much smaller app developers who fight for survival with minimal marketing resources," said Naveen Tewari, CEO, InMobi. "While mobile is universal and provides access to billions of app users, the dynamics of the app business changes significantly across countries. 'Apponomics' is our attempt to share the deep insights we have collected over the past six years to help developers navigate the complexities of the app world across the globe and find the success their apps deserve."
