Appnext Introduces It’s In-App Header Bidding
in-app header bidding

We’re pretty emotional about the release of our in-app header bidding and we hope you will be too! Publishers will be able to put the old fashioned waterfall system in the past and focus on their monetization future increasing eCPM by 20-40%.

Instead of working according to the waterfall method and basing bids on historical eCPM, publishers will receive a predicted real-time eCPM for every request and user, maximizing their monetization efforts.

By updating the SDK publishers will enjoy:

Real-time eCPM bid per specific request and user
App Install & Re-engagement Campaign blend
Fully transparent pricing

In-app header bidding is currently available for Android and will be released to iOS in a few short weeks. For questions about integration or feedback about our in-app header bidding please feel free to contact us at

A “super app” experience
In the fierce competitive app jungle, it has become impossible to play by the old industry rules. It’s not about surviving the competition, it’s about winning, being the best and providing users with the ultimate product. The next generation of industry winners will be referred to as “super apps”: these apps will accompany users on their daily journeys, enabling them to do more with less, streamlining dozens of daily on-device tasks completed faster and more efficiently.

A great example of a super app is China’s Wechat. An average user spends an incredible amount of time within WeChat – more than 90 minutes daily, basically managing their entire life…

Introducing Appnext Timeline Finally Target and Monetize with Context
appnext timeline technology

Something great is happening at this very moment. We’re launching Appnext Timeline, the next-gen user intelligence and targeting technology that will mark the end of the Ad-Tech “stone age” and start a new era.

Challenging the Industry status quo

Appnext Timeline is going to shift the focus from profile and ad views to real-life user context, concentrating on relevance, engagement, and user experience. In the past few years, the Ad-Tech industry made substantial progress in regards to user intelligence capabilities, enabling marketers to understand who their ideal users are (by demographics, geo, etc.). For example, a marketer behind a taxi app knows multiple parameters about different user segments. As a result, users are bombarded with ads that might be accurately targeted to their demographic profiles but are close to irrelevant for the current moment throughout their day.

Appnext Timeline leverages location, real-time and historical…

Introducing City Targeting


We are thrilled to announce the official release of City Targeting capabilities to the Appnext self-serve platform. We believe it will help thousands of Appnext developers launch their apps locally, as well as recommend laser-targeted apps and games to their users in over 70,000 cities across the world.

The new setup is intuitive and easy, you will see the new field on the “Add Campaign” page, and will be able to both include and exclude specific locations from the campaign targeting. Please note that you should create designated campaigns per each location you would want to appear separately in the reports.


It is exciting to go local, tailoring your message, and creative. For some apps, it’s an absolute must, while for the others it is a great opportunity to perform soft launches, and to try triggering the network effect of the local communities. We encourage you to be creative, and, of course, we always here to brainstorm ideas and answer any questions.
