Anyone using a mobile device, smartphone, tablet, or even ultra books and laptops, these days, sees new apps showing up daily to do everything from keep your grocery list to checking local gas prices. Games are a big deal (how many zombie game apps are on the market – that’s a statistic we’d like to see.)
