I am using other ad networks in my application. Can I still work with StartApp?
Of course. You can keep your current ads and have StartApp at the same time. Keep in mind that StartApp has some very unique offers:
- PayPerDownload method – guaranteeing a fixed price every time your app is downloaded
- High performance ad types – like a 3D banner
- Exit ads via ‘home’ button – making sure you are monetizing even more of your traffic
What is an Exit Ad?
This is a beautiful full page interstitial, which appears to your users when they are ready to exit your application. You can choose to implement this both when exiting via the ‘back’ button or the ‘home’ button.
This specific point in your application holds a key to successful monetization – showing an ad upon exit keeps the user experience exactly as you designed it with an additional advantage; at this point your users are ready for their next activity upon their device, making it an optimal point for ad interaction.
What are interstitials?
Full page ads, which you can choose to integrate within various parts of your application. You could choose to present the ad when the user is exiting your settings page, between levels of a game and more.
What is a 3D ad?
This is our revolutionary ad type which provides the user with a beautifully designed interactive ad. This is your way of integrating cutting edge technology in all aspects of your application. Read more about this ad type on our blog
What is a PostCall Tool?
This is our helpful tool which shows on the user’s screen when they hang up a phone call. At this point, they can use the tool in order to call back, send a message, send an email, add a reminder to their calendar and more.
What will my users get?
According to the SDK you choose, you user will receive one or more of the following:
Ads in your app (interstitial, banner or exit), a useful post call tool or a homepage leading to our search portal.
How will my users know about these additions?
Each app working with us includes a EULA page on app launch, which tells the user what they will get in addition to your app. Additionally, we will provide you with a short text to add to your app description.
Can my users easily revert the changes?
Sure. Your users can easily change their default homepage to any other page, and dismiss the post call tool so that it no longer shows after calls.
If my users change the homepage or dismisses the tool, what will happen to my app?
Absolutely nothing! Since this is an out-of-app solution, your app will remain as it was on the user’s phone.
