With the app market so competitive nowadays, many leading companies are battling it out to bring the latest innovative apps to the market for their chosen niche. This is mainly due to mobile Internet becoming one of the most powerful trends on the Internet landscape at present according to industry experts Gaming Realms PLC who launched the popular portal Spin Genie.
