Study: iPhone Users Really Like Their Games

A new study by the Nielsen research group says that iPhone users play games for twice as long as other smartphone users. Nielsen noted that Games is the most popular category of apps downloaded by iPhone users, with 64 percent of users downloading at least one game.
