Social gaming network PapayaMobile is introducing a new service today for Android developers – a cost-free and commission-free cross promotion network called AppFlood. The network had already been in testing with around 20 mobile developers in an earlier version, and today it’s being opened to all. And yes, it’s on Android where this sort of thing is allowed.
The company says that the goal with AppFlood is to lower user acquisition costs for developers, who are now being priced out of the market as rates for acquisition soar.
“The thing that makes this really different is that from the actual buying and selling of traffic, it’s 100% free and commission-free,” explains PapayaMobile’s Director of Marketing, Justin Mauldin. “There are other ad networks out there, and all of them charge some sort of cut for each transaction because that’s their business model. AppFlood takes nothing, but PapayaMobile is not in this to make any money.”
