Apple loves premium, Zynga win big on in-game ads, and Hipster Whale talks Crossy Road

There was a lot of chat about independent development this week.

We talked indie successes in our making of Crossy Road feature and our coverage of Psych's 1 million download milestone, as well as getting our Indie Mavens to tackle the question of transparency and finances.

In other news, the partnerships between western and eastern companies continues to come thick and fast, with Kunlun bringing a bespoke Angry Birds to China while LA-based Firefly Games raised $8 million investment to bring Chinese games westward.
