Is Leadbolt A Sinking Titanic?

Posted by with 30 comments

Lately, a big issue has been bugging me. And bugging a great many of you developers too. Leadbolt's revenue dropping faster than you can say Led Zeppelin. It might have been a stairway to heaven previously, it surely seems like an escalator to hell right now.

For those that are asking me about it, well, I did try getting some details about it. The bad part is the answers given really did not justify.

Lets see.

Some App-ening News!

Posted by with 8 comments

Too too tied down, and with the year almost half gone, hope everyone's monetizing of apps is doing wonderful. Quick take post today...

1 - Admob and that other adsomething - Google now allows the adwords people to directly send their ads into mobiles. Awesome eh? Well, I have seem a slight increase in revenue ever since this was announced. Could be due to the new month, or could be a direct effect. Who knows?

2 - Applovin - they've release their social tools. Unfortunately I could not get it to work with my B4A apps. No idea why. Anyone got success with it? What did you do? Their banners and interstitials though, have been going crazy in revenue, makes you wonder how can banner ads make such money?

3 - 900k - The number of new android devices activated daily. Awesome or what!!?? Close to a million new customers for us every day, and that is not considering the unofficial androids yet. Make the most of this.



Your Ad Here



4 - RevMob - I'll most likely be starting with ads from RevMob for my Unity3D venture. Still nothing to show yet, but their integration for ads is simple, and they too have good support for devs. Looks like an awesome trend is happening that ad networks are getting in touch with their devs, and providing one to one support.

5 - Spamdroid / Senddroid - Have you been receiving spam from them recently? Anyone made the move? Caveat emptor: this might be just sugar coating to attract new devs, hope it does not turn into another airbull.

6 - Have fun, make money, enjoy life!

Cheers!
