June 11, 2013iOS 7 - The Industry Responds
Case in point Craig Palli, VP of business development at Fiksu, who took the opportunity to look in-depth at two key elements of the announcement which should be of particular interest to app developers and marketers.
“This is great news for app developers,” says Palli. “It ensures that they can always reach their users with a consistent, up-to-date version of their app, and every update is a reengagement opportunity. Delivering new features and content provides a reason for users to return to your app, without requiring the user to make a conscious decision to update. Auto updates also eliminate the need to support multiple older versions – at least within iOS 7.”

June 7, 2013Android Users Spend 20% Less Time In Apps Than Apple Users, Study Reports
Recent numbers by a market research firm appear to show that Android users spend 20 percent less time using their apps than iOS users spend.
If iOS and Android users are studied in the aggregate, discrepancies in app usage will appear between the two groups, but if you dig deeper, you’ll find that both are the same, said Craig Palli, vice president for business development and client services for Fiksu, an application market research company. “If you peel back just one or two layers of the onion, there is a lot more parity than there is at that top level,” he told PCWorld.
June 7, 2013Today’s Burning Question: Simplifying Facebook Ads
Today we solicited responses from industry leaders to the following Burning Question: ”What do you think of Facebook’s decision to simplify its ad-buying process by eliminating half of its 27 ad units?”
“This seems like a smart decision by Facebook to streamline their product offering — especially in light of the success they’re having with some of their newer ad units. Specifically, their mobile app install ads have proven to be a great way to deliver highly qualified loyal downloads at a low CPI. In fact, Fiksu is seeing some conversion rates for loyal users, a core metric Fiksu focuses on in our campaigns, that are as high as 30-55%. By focusing on their best-performing ad units, Facebook can both simplify the purchasing process and deliver better results for their advertisers.” — Craig Palli, Vice President, Business Development & Client Services, Fiksu.
June 3, 2013Mobile Marketing Facebook Ads Boost App Downloads

May 31, 2013Developers Spent More To Acquire Loyal Gamers In April
The cost of acquiring new loyal gamers is on the rise. Referring users to other studios is one of the most effective ways for developers to monetize their games, but it’s also a major expense for new studios looking to gain traction. That’s going to continue, and the rich are just going to get richer, according to data-tracking firm Fiksu.
Each month, Fiksu releases an index that tracks the average cost to acquire a loyal user. In April, that number jumped 10 percent to $1.50 from $1.36 in March. Fiksu chief executive Micah Adler thinks this increase is attributable to a few forces working in conjunction.
May 31, 2013Apple's Switch From UDID To IDFA A Non-Event According To Fiksu's Indicies
Speaking on the dual move, Fiksu's CEO Micah Adler said that "three key forces" combined to create increases in volume and costs.
The month of April was something of a mixed blessing to iOS developers and publishers, according to mobile marketing outfit Fiksu.
The Fiksu Cost per Loyal User Index (which reflects marketing costs) rose 10 percent, or 14 cents from March's $1.36.
May 31, 2013Fiksu Finds Facebook Install Ads Drive App Downloads
On Friday, Fiksu reported that downloads from Apple’s App Store popped 11 percent in April, largely aided by Facebook mobile app install ads.
The Fiksu App Store Competitive Index (which measures the average aggregate daily download volume of the top 200 free U.S. iPhone apps) climbed to 5.61 million daily downloads in April from March’s 5.02 million.
May 31, 2013App Downloads, Costs Rise In April
Behind the rise in downloads and costs were a combination three factors, according to Fiksu CEO Micah Adler. One was continued investment in mobile by brands that kept competition high. Another was the smooth transition from Apple’s unique device identifier (UDID) to its new Advertising Identifer (IDFA) for tracking that avoided disruption.
The volume of app downloads rose in April for the first time since January, along with the cost to market those apps. That’s according to the latest figures from app marketing firm Fiksu, which has tracked more than 107 billion app actions on its platform that helps developers and brands optimize their iOS and Android campaigns.
