      I want to believe in what you’re hoping for but I don’t think the average pe1on with his or her mobile phone is willing to look for a high quality experience. It seems like the platform is just something to use as a time killer. The problem is that we’re treating the mobile phone market like we treat any other gaming market – handheld, PC, co1ole. But those markets are all self selected – if you own one of those, it’s because you want to play games. If you own a phone, it’s because you’re a human being with a reasonable amount of disposable income. Nothing about that says that a pe1on wants to play a really in depth high quality gaming experience. So why do we keep i1isting on trying to deliver that to them?nI think that the depressing truth of the matter is that people are happy with things being “good enough” and whatever is put in front of them is what they will take. More people will watch Duck Dynasty than will ever watch True Detective, and more people will play the #1 app on the app store than the actual best 100 mobile games, for the same reason – because it’s there, and it will do.nMy solution would be a more curated app store, that allows people in niches to actually find those niches. The current state of discoverability in app stores is the #1 problem in mobile right now, and unfortunately Apple and Google have no incentive to try and fix that. Hopefully Amazon will bring some competition but I’m not super hopeful about that.
