    I've noticed Startapp isnt really active on the forums anymore, what happen with Ariel? How is the business doing? I used Startapp 4 years ago and was actually reconsidering using them again but now that I've read this thread maybe not

    Nowadays, I suggest to use some bigger ad networks. Applovin, Appnext, inmobi, vungle, adcolony or even airpush(180 workers), we have guarantee that network will not dissapear. The worst are 1-10 people networks.

Cross promoting will make your life 1000x easier too and you'll make more money because you can target the right users with the right apps.

    A quality app is basic something like a simple collage creator app or photo editor and they do amazing or something to do with instagram / facebook / social ..there are a ton of niches besides games that do very well.

    unless you have a big budget or access to a large traffic source i'd stay far away from games because you'll get wiped out by people with massive budgets
    @1appmarket
    Very good points you made. You seem to understand the business better than a lot of people on this forum. We've seen similar trends across some of our big publishers in 3rd-party markets.
    We are in the process of finishing up our third-party SDK, which will benefit a lot of developers in emerging markets, and across many of the other fragmented markets.

    If Google play only had 4 to 6%, then I can confirm getjar or Aptoide only had 0.004% market share. They are really nothing. I don't know why you are saying there is more traffic outside Google play, and it is not only dominate north america, your facts are all wrong.

    The biggest market outside Google play is in China.

    Look at new offerwall from startapp.
    You can download one app and see how it behaves:

    The true reason for the issues about Startapp is that we(Advertisers) can't make money on it, it's a good network, I had spent over $1,000,000 on startapp. It's getting harder than before, we can't make money, so you can't either, but you guys can wait, because we are waiting too.

    Try FAN, they have about hundreds employer for mobile apps ads. I have plan to remove startapp completely because very very low CPM and revenue.
