App Universe After the Big Bang

There was a time when mobile computing and productized apps were magic fairy dust that sprinkled money all over a project. Those were good times. The big bang, the heady expansion, the flash of chaos as the past gave way to the future. But now that the future is the present, and the gold rush is over, where do we go from here?

What kind of ideas are worth pursuing? Are app-based startups a thing anymore? What kind of business plans make sense for mobile apps? Is there room for indie apps? How about indie games? Can we still make a living doing this? Can we still live the dream and be our own boss? Can we still be artists?
