New York, NY -- By 2013, the smart phone applications market is expected to surpass $15 billion, up from $1.94 billion in 2009 according to research2guidance. The surge will be attributed to the dramatic increase in the amount of smart phone users, which should top 1 billion in 2013.

Plenty of companies are benefiting from this increase in attention, like Glu Mobile makers of original games like Beat It! And Brain Genius to NetSuite who gears its applications towards financial and customer management needs.
