Mobile gaming gets Amazon style recommendation engine from Mimvi

Mimvi, Inc. one of the world’s largest pure-play search, discovery and recommendation engine for mobile applications launched a new search and recommendation engine for mobile games. Mobile games currently represent the largest category of mobile apps in the marketplace, reinforcing the evolving role of mobile devices toward becoming entertainment vehicles. According to Futuresource Consulting, the worldwide market for mobile games is forecast to reach $10 billion by 2014. The same source also noted that in the Apple App Store alone, iPad sales are expected to generate $1.7 billion in 2010.

Providing insight into this market opportunity in the mobile industry, Kasian Franks, Mimvi’s Founder and CEO commented, “Ultimately mobile devices, whether a smartphone or tablet, are only as good as the content that resides on them. Mobile gaming apps are a driving force in the sale of smartphones and tablets; a trend that will only grow as we approach the holiday season.” Franks continued, “Studies have shown that the acquisition of apps is driven through third-party recommendations as opposed to how well they are known or marketed. Mimvi’s Amazon-like recommendation technology is poised to play a significant role in energizing this consumer trend. Furthermore, with the launch of Google TV and Apple TV, we are in the early stages of a new platform world for internet app-based entertainment that will only escalate this trend. These are exciting times indeed.”

The launch of Mimvi’s mobile multi-platform gaming search and recommendation engine represents the first in a series of strategic vertical site announcements the Company expects to make going forward. Mimvi Games is located at:
