    More mobile apps are being build outside rather than in USA , though It has been found that the apps US app makers creates are more engaging, and reckon more users. In 2011, 2012 75 to 76 percent active apps were created in the USA; it has been decreasing to 70 percent of the market share in 2013.

One country may have hard times, but a global industry such as this will endure- happy to hear from anyone who disagrees, but otherwise, I agree with the author’s fascination on this article’s topic, and I only diverge, in my totally positive take on the situation. I can’t wait until the US’ share dips below even 30%, because in the end, they’re still going to want to come to SF and demo their prototypes!
