This can be achieved by using innovative business models such as hypercasual games, games that can be played immediately and designed with simple and satisfying mechanics.

India has the fastest growth rate, with cellular penetration constantly increasing. Education is the application category with the fastest growth rate, and the Entertainment category needs to be monitored because competition will be tighter with the Over The Top (OTT) streaming and media applications .
Entertainment applications are growing rapidly, and subscriptions need to be monitored. According to research by Adjust, about 80% of the 225 most popular apps on the Google Play Store and 50% of the 225 most popular apps on the App Store are subscription based.
