“By amassing our user data, we are able to continue moving towards our two main goals: creating both the most engaging brand advertising experience and an amazing player experience all the way from download to game play,” Greystripe CEO Michael Chang said regarding the study. “The more we know about our users, the more we can do to ensure that they are having fun with our publishers’ games.”

Additional data include which game devices users own, what carriers they use, the top 20 downloaded games and more lifestyle info such as how often they go to the movies and what kind of car they drive.
