The Podcast: The Future of Free-to-play

App Annie's Paul Barnes and Chatterbox Games' Adam Telfer join us to discuss changes in mobile's most competitive market

The latest episode of The Podcast is available to download now, and this week we focus on free-to-play games.

We're joined by Paul Barnes of App Annie and Adam Telfer of Chatterbox Games to discuss the future of the market on mobile.

Recorded at Pocket Gamer Connects earlier this week, we ponder the most recent trends and shifts in the mobile market, the impact the ongoing loot box debate might have on free-to-play games, and how the monetisation model might in the coming years.

Barnes and Telfer also offer advice on best practices and how to ensure your free-to-play mechanics are effective but not offensive.
