EA Mobile may have got off to a rough start with its free-to-play transition, but now its growing at a rapid pace and making some quality games too.

Contributing Editor Jon Jordan decided to take a look into its finances and track its steady growth, in what became the most read article of last week on the site.

In second place was the news that 50 studios have now signed up for Rovio's new Hatch service, which will allow mobile game players to stream games to their device, a platform that could change the face of mobile games forever.
