Further, the report notes that while mobile gaming sessions have declined by 10 percent year-over-year, some categories have gained traction. Card and casino app sessions grew by 22 percent since 2014 and now accounts for 15 percent of all gaming sessions. However, arcade, casual and brain games, which were driving 55 percent of all gaming sessions three years ago have seen a big decline. Arcade games, which accounted for 24 percent of all gaming sessions in 2014, saw a decrease by 34 percent, while casual games decreased by 50 percent.

Flurry Analytics’ report also revealed that the size of the mobile device factors into gaming sessions. It notes that when users are playing on the go, they usually use a medium-sized phone or phablet. However, if they are purposely dedicating time to mobile gaming, users generally prefer to use their full size tablet. Flurry Analytics expects new technologies like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to enhance in-app experience as a whole.
