MWC 2017 & Gamelab Mobile in Barcelona

Just a couple of weeks ago TutoTOONS team enjoyed two big events in Barcelona - Mobile Worlds Congress and Gamelab Mobile, followed by a super fun 200M downloads celebration dinner with KIDOZ, App Annie and Google partners. Mobile World Congress, the world’s largest conference for the mobile industry which included Gamelab Mobile exclusive summit, brought together the leaders of the gaming and the mobile sectors to discuss the latest trends and opportunities. Being a Barcelona-born startup, we were happy to attend the first-class events at home. Thank you everyone for being together at the conference and celebrating our special occasion!

Meet and Learn from Mike Hines

Meet and learn from Mike Hines (Amazon), the new best friend of TutoTOONS! :) We’re organising a meet-up with Mike on November 7th at ISM Innobase (Arklių Str. 18 Vilnius), 19:00. RSVP and invite your friends game developers!  Topics that Mike will cover: What the Top 50 Apps Do With In App Purchasing That the Rest of Us Don’t Amazon has collected data about how users engage with IAP in games, and we have reviewed how the most profitable apps are using IAP to monetize successfully. We found data on two levels: HOW the top 50 did differently (Retention data, session length data, units sold and price data) and WHAT they did differently to get those results. It turns out there are a handful of things that most of the top 50 do that other games don’t do. We’ll share that actionable data with you in this session. Is This Really All There Is? More Ways to Monetize We’ve all heard of premium, freemium and ad-supported monetization models, but is that really all there is? No, there are more ways to monetize your app than just those three choices. Is your app using all of the available monetization mechanics? In this presentation, Amazon reviews additional ways you can monetize your app both inside and outside of the app itself, including Amazon Underground. Most of these monetization options will work in conjunction with other established monetization mechanics regardless of whether your app targets iOS, Android, or Windows Mobile devices. Short Bio  Mike Hines is a recovering serial entrepreneur, and is currently a Developer Evangelist for the Amazon Appstore. An advocate for getting more developers over the app poverty line, Mike is on a continuing mission to find out and share what currently is and isn’t working in mobile app monetization, and to identify trends that shape the industry. Mike will be happy to take questions on just about any mobile app topic. Join us on Monday!
