Mack Center senior fellow Michael Mandel’s recent study on job creation in the mobile app industry found that more than 500,000 jobs have been developed nationwide since the Android Market and Apple iTunes application stores opened in 2008.

“Mandel said banks provided one of the biggest growth areas for applications because of demand for mobile banking and the need to make it secure. Other companies hiring for mobile development included the military, entertainment firms, pharmaceutical firms and hospitals,” reported the Tribune-Review.
