The changing behaviour series: got game?

Lockdowns have been imposed in most major cities around the world. Personal movement across these cities has disappeared virtually overnight, with transport app Citymapper reporting as much as a 96% reduction in travel over the past number of weeks. And gaming and news apps are having their moment, in terms of content consumption and engagement. This restricted movement has led to an uptick in app usage of 70.1% in the UK, 15% in the US and 23% in Australia, according to Blis data.
