"Easily the best monetization mediator by far."

What do you like best?

1. You can include whatever ad network you want when building your app and remove those that are not performing.

2. After the app is live very fine control about what ad providers and format are used based on segments and/or a number of parameters.

3. Historical weekly data on how each of the ad networks has performed across all their clients not just your impressions.

4. Great reporting, for example, you can find out what hours during the day or days of the week your ads perform the best.

5. Great support. They will respond to an e-mail within a day and usually within a few hours.

6. Good eCPM. I have tried so many monetization mediators and none has been able to consistently outperform Appodeal.

7. Free adServer for cross-promotions or any direct deals you might get. And the ability to give the company that purchased your impressions to go into the Appodeal control panel and see only the performance of their impressions.

What do you dislike?

They do a terrible job communicating all the features available. I would also love if their S2S server did not require decryption of the payload. Some game service providers do not have any crypt libraries and most S2S rely on some sort of hashed key to verify payload.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes it easier to calculate LTV since Appodeal already does the ARPDAU calculation.

"Coming Back to App Monetization"

What do you like best?

What I personally liked was how they tracked the audience and made sure the ad that was ran would leave an impression on the audience that was seeing it. Instead of wasting money putting out mediocre ads, they select the best one and monetize it on the network. They give immediate payouts and look for prime optimization of ads. They prioritize the publisher and that is the main goal.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike is I feel like I have less control since they are choosing the ads. It depends how much you trust Appodeal. The website for Appodeal is also a little bit "in your face" with a lot of different options to look through. They do not give a general cost or even a sample price which is something I would like to see.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know what you are looking for. If you are ok with giving the reigns to someone else for this part of your app then go with Appodeal. It will save you time and provide more revenue which can help you expand other parts of your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is helping to bring in revenue that wasn't previously there. I like that it is constantly tracking the audience and I do not have to. It saves a lot of time and money when I don't run ads that people are not going to go to and when I do not have to choose the ads.

"Best Ad Mediation In The Market"

What do you like best?

The choice of different ad networks and the ability to choose what to show and what not is great.

Hassle free integration on both mobile platforms for Unity 3d

Delayed but excellent support. They help you out till your problem gets resolved.

What do you dislike?

Delays in answering the queries, even the simplest ones.

More revenue and eCPM for big impressions, not as help for beginners as it should be

Initially, I don't see much difference as they claim. Did talk to their support rep. They said you have to have a few thousand daily impressions to have the perks of Appodeal at its full scale. This is disappointing for a small startup since they don't have thousands of impressions on daily basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a Unity3D developer and looking for all-in-one place ad meditation. Appodeal is a best choice for you compared to other similar services out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Consistent Ad revenue for mobile platforms.

"Very good ad mediation platform."

What do you like best?

Very easy to implement and stable. Their support is great and fast. We basically doubled our revenue after we implemented Appodeal.

What do you dislike?

Blackbox mediation algorithm. We don't have report how their algorithm choose ads, so we can't control what is happening. But even like that, eCPM are strong, so we don't find this as some big problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend everyone to try it and compare with other mediation platforms and see how are results. For us, Appodeal works the best, they pay in time, easy to implement, great support and strong eCPM.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We using Appodeal for monetisation through reward video ads. With Appodeal, we were able to double our ads income! This is great and their support is fast. They had some problems in past with stability, but they improved it a lot lately and we are happy with it now. We tried many mediations and it was very heavy, unstable and time consuming to implement. Only Appodeal proved to be very simple, fast with good eCPM. So far, we are most happy with Appodeal and there is no reason to change.

"Good revenue, good support"

What do you like best?

- If we encounter problems, the support staff reacts fast

- as far as ad-platforms go, it's very transparent

- good revenue, good optimization possibilities

- direct campaigns are possible

- good dashboard

What do you dislike?

- it would be good if we could see each and every ad served in our game; this would allow us to disable offensive or fraudulent ads ourselves

"Up and coming solution for content publishers"

What do you like best?

As an Mobile app developer I love creating apps. I don't like trying to figure out how to find advertisers or determine what advertising solutions have the best track record or pay the most. That's where Appodeal steps in. They figure out that stuff so I can create apps.

What do you dislike?

As a new solution the implementation is still rough around the edges. (they haven't made it to version 1.0 yet) I've found some compatibility issues with 3rd party SDK's I use. What impresses me is the help I receive from the folks at Appodeal. Additionally I continuously receive emails from the founder himself. I cannot even name another situation that I even knew the name of the organizational head - let alone receive regular emails from him to check on my satisfaction using his product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Appodeal is a great concept. Understand this is not yet version 1.0 yet so there may be some compatibility issues. However, if you are trying to generate advertising income from your mobile app it's really nice to find a company in my corner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So far I've found the epm (earning per thousand) I've been getting through Appodeal is about double what I've seen using Apple's iAd.

"Great monetization service!"

What do you like best?

First of all it is great service itself. It using automatic mediation, so it works more effectively that our own waterfall. I like, that i do not need to switch off my own solution to use this one. And last but not least it is great support, they help me with integration and solve all my questions in online.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes i can see some bugs, but i must say, that appodeal release new updates very fast and all known bugs will be closed very fast.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need good monetization for my service. Previously we are using own server-based semi-automatic waterfall, but appodeal can do it more effectively, so it helps me to make monetization better.
