” The key here is that these game rooms are also part chat rooms, so users can boast about their in-game accomplishments, heckle opposing players, challenge their friends to gaming duels, or shower them with praise for shooting a whole raft of ducks — all in realtime. “

Additional analysis from SYS-CON Media  ” According to a recent CTIA study, mobile consumers in North America send over 187 billion text messages per month, and media firm ScreenDigest estimates consumers will spend a staggering $7.8 billion on mobile games by 2014. FunChat is the first mobile app to simultaneously address these two huge markets by combining chatting and texting with social gaming and gameplay mechanics. “
