"Our quarterly revenues grew 172% year-over-year and 49% quarter-over-quarter, representing our fifth consecutive quarter of at least double-digit sequential revenue growth.

In addition to our very strong revenue growth, Tapinator is also pleased to announce adjusted EBITDA of $187,591 in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of 1,390% year-over-year and 68% sequentially.
