Mar 28, 2014 (Korea Bizwire) - The UAE currently boasts the highest number of mobile phone users per capita, as noted in a recent 2013 article by Mashable. With that being said, it comes as no surprise that the nation also has the largest ratio of mobile app subscribers. It is because of these reasons that the UAE have become a primary focus for entrepreneurs like Shadi Al Ghanim. The article also highlights a study, which was released by Google’s ‘Think Mobile Planet’ campaign, and shows that an estimated 73% of Saudi Arabians use a smartphone – compared to just 56% of Americans.
There was even more good news in the survey for app developers – 46% of those surveyed for UAE had ten or more apps installed on their smartphones, with over 80% that used mobile apps every day.
Native Kuwait resident and entrepreneur, Shadi Ismail Al Ghanim has recognized this local leading market and has decided to launch his first mobile app studio and online Business : THE APPreneur.

The apps will come from a diversified collection, launching between 5-8 apps every month to cater to different mobile app users, plus diversifying his portfolio with websites and blogs to cater to a larger group of the market.
“THE APPreneur is an indie studio, but the real power behind it is in the marketing experience that we have and the understanding of the market needs, we are not limiting ourselves to certain group of consumers, we have a plan how to manage to target both smart phone users along with internet visitors, we are looking to have 10,000,000 download/visitor/pageview in our 1st year across all our mediums” Shdi Ismail
