Mobile Roared Through 2012... So Did Bottle Rocket!

It's no secret the mobile industry is exploding! Here at Bottle Rocket, we mirrored the industry’s tremendous growth last year. In fact, 2012 was our most successful year in our nearly 5-year history. We proudly released over 21 high-quality apps for the world's most discriminating brands and over 100 valuable updates to serve our users.

We think Apple did a great job of articulating the growth of the industry in their first press release of 2013. In the release, Apple announces that customers have downloaded over 40 billion apps from the App Store, with nearly 20 billion in 2012 alone.  The release goes on to detail the success of the mobile app industry, the iOS platform and the developer community. To read the full release, visit Apple’s press page

Don't just take our word for it. You can see how other industry media experts responded to Apple’s release below.

They each seem to echo the same message… 2012 was a year of significant growth and success for the mobile industry and the development community. Some of the articles listed above also mention their predictions of similar growth in 2013 and beyond.

We look forward to being a significant part of that growth and leadership in 2013 and many years to come!
