Updates to the Referral Program

Posted on July 29th, 2014 by
 Referral1

With our pay-per-download model coming to an end on August 1, we’ve had to make some big changes to our popular referral program as well.

 

Unfortunately, starting on August 1, our referral program will no longer count app downloads. This means that, from now on, any devs using the referral program will only receive bonuses from impressions.

 

Note: If you crossed a download tier before July 31st, you will still receive that bonus in the next payment cycle.

 

The Good News:

 

We know that a lot of our developers rely on the referral program for revenue, so we want to make this as smooth of a transition as possible!

 

So, also starting on August 1, you will now have the chance to earn up to $10,000 in bonuses through the referral program!

Posted on July 25th, 2014 by

We are always working on new ways to improve our InApp SDK, so today, we are proud to introduce two brand new ad types: the Mini App Wall and the Return Ad!

 

Mini App Wall:

 

You may be familiar with our other full-page App Walls, but now we are shrinking the App Wall down to allow it to fit within the standard 320×50 banner size!

Each Mini App Wall banner will contain 5 different, targeted apps within the App Wall, and we have added a simple, subtle animation that will draw the user’s attention much more effectively than a standard, static banner.

Introducing Two New & Improved SDKs

Posted on April 6th, 2014 by

We are happy to announce the introduction of two new and improved StartApp SDKs: the updated InApp SDK and the InApp Plus SDK. Below, we explain each SDK and what they offer in addition to an in-depth explanation for why we decided to implement these changes:

 

Updated InApp SDK:

 

In addition to our banner ads, full-page ads, and app walls, the updated InApp SDK includes our new and improved Slider ad unit and our new Native Ad unit.

 

Though similar to our old Search Box SDK, the Slider ad unit does not make any changes to the user’s browser settings. Slider ads will take the form of our familiar slider menu, which the user can swipe open from the side of their screen. From this menu, the user can browse through a list of free apps whenever they choose.

Introducing Native Ads!

 mix_clipped_rev_1

We are proud to announce the release of our newest ad type, the Native ad!

 

The newest addition to our InApp SDK, our Native Ad template will give you the freedom to design advertisements that can mimic the look and feel of your application’s native user interface. By taking the components that we provide in our native ads bundle, you can create an advertisement that will not only match the look of your app but also match the layout, content, and functionality.

 

When using our Native Ad template, you will receive a bundle containing a set of generic native ad components such as: an app icon in 4 different sizes, an app name, an app category, an app rating, and an app description, and more. You can mix and match these 5 different pieces to create an advertisement that blends in seamlessly with your app.

StartApp at Mobile World Congress

Posted on March 10th, 2014 by
 MWC-Keynote-Zuckerberg-43

We were very excited to attend Mobile World Congress this year in Barcelona!

 

Eight members of our StartApp team manned our 6-meter high booth, equipped with two giant touchscreens which were loaded with awesomely addictive mobile games. (Rumors are that the Flappy Bird high score was 57)

 

We were set up in the “App Planet” hall, and had a great time meeting with and talking to everyone who had a chance to stop by our booth. We were also blown away by the amazing exhibitions set up by our fellow “App Planet” exhibitors, and it was great to see what kind of developments and innovations were emerging from all corners of the mobile app industry.

 

Some of the biggest news out of MWC14: Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook was scheduled to make the keynote address. During his keynote, Zuckerberg spent time talking about and hyping up Facebook’s acquisition of the messaging service WhatsApp, noting that the company would continue “operate autonomously” and that Facebook would not interfere with any privacy policies (a big concern for WhatsApp users). Zuckerberg then went on to talk about Internet.org, an initiative aimed at bringing mobile internet into the developing world, or, as Zuckerberg called it, “connecting the next billion”.
