Close to two weeks after Verizon's Go90 over-the-top mobile video application launched, its ranking and popularity in Apple's U.S. App Store has fallen while the app's standing in Google's Play Store has remained fairly consistent, according to app-tracking company App Annie.
Verizon's Go90 mobile video application launched late last week and is reportedly being abetted by an $80 million marketing campaign to get the word out and drum up users, especially among its prized millennial demographic.
