Neil Long started his media career almost 20 years ago on UK games industry publication MCV, where he quickly rose through the ranks to become editor at the tender age of 24.
He then moved into consumer journalism as editor of Official Nintendo Magazine, and later became editor-in-chief of all Nintendo products at Future Publishing.
After creating and launching interactive iPad magazine iGamer, he moved into online journalism as editor of edge-online.com.
In 2014, he took up a role at Apple as App Store games editor. There he assumed responsibility for featuring decisions and editorial strategy across Europe, and was part of the team that helped launch App Stores on the Apple Watch and Apple TV, as well as the App Store’s UK Today tab and Apple Arcade.
Neil was responsible for the editorial launch of countless games, including Clash Royale, Monument Valley 2, Brawl Stars, Candy Crush Friends Saga, Beatstar and more. He was also part of the team that debated and selected Apple’s Game of the Year and Apple Design Award nominations.
(See if you can spot where the viral John Riccitiello “fucking idiots” story was published.)
In February this site was visited by over 36,000 readers, a record outside of that viral story from July 2022.
There’s also the newsletter. It goes out every Friday, and has just passed 2,600 subscribers. It’s a concise, no-fluff round-up of the last week’s news and features, with a little bit of exclusive commentary or behind the scenes stuff for good measure.
Mobilegamer.biz readers are mostly founders and CEOs in the mobile game development, investing, marketing and data industries.
Neil’s LinkedIn following (above) shows you the level of seniority.

If you want to get your brand in front of mobile games industry decision-makers, consider advertising.
You can buy banners on the homepage, sidebar and sponsor the newsletter. You can also partner on regular, relevant content columns: for example, Game Jobs Direct sponsors the Jobs Weekly column.
This is useful, relevant editorial that people want to read with the right sponsor, and that’s why the partnership works. Any sponsorship will always be clearly called out at the top of that story.
Potential sponsorship opportunities coming up include the mobilegamer.biz podcast and two new regular weekly columns on data and marketing.
Important: mobilegamer.biz does not sell editorial or write puff pieces for advertisers. Everything you read on this site is legit and written and edited in-house.
