During the trial period with its beta version, it reached two million downloads in the two countries combined, exhibiting the potential of the service.
LatteScreen incentivizes users for permitting and engaging in ads on their lock screen. The application has a very simple interface that gives the users the options of swiping a tab to the left or right, which unlocks the screen or leads to further details about the advertisement. The simplicity and convenience of LatteScreen guarantees satisfactory user experience. It also provides a variety of contents with photography and illustrations to meet users' desire for wallpaper design. In addition, the registration process was simplified for the global release, allowing users to sign up simply with an e-mail address.
LatteScreen incorporates a more neutral way of bringing advertisements to users as the lock screen placement and design are less obtrusive. It offers full size advertisement images, helping advertisers reinforce their brand image in a novel manner. LatteScreen gives out higher rewards to users who engage in activities such as installing an app, fulfilling the demand and interest of both the users and advertisers.
Through the launch of LatteScreen overseas, AppDisco embarks on its ambitious journey to become the major incentivizing mobile advertising platform company in the global market.
