Leadbolt, a global discovery and monetization platform for mobile app developers and marketers, today officially unveiled its Next Generation Mobile Ad platform. Re-engineered from the ground up, this Next-gen platform streamlines the enhanced tools and features offered within the Leadbolt product set. By leveraging an extensive revamp of the developer-focused app monetization portal and including re-designed and extended ‘Leadbolt+’ capabilities, the Next generation platform will provide a strong basis for growth and profitability to Leadbolt’s network of app developer partners.
“Better design delivers better outcomes to our mobile app developer clients,” said Dale Carr, founder and CEO of Leadbolt. “With this in mind, we re-considered every aspect of the mobile advertising process looking for ways to deliver a future-proof platform whilst making it even easier for our app developers to achieve ROI quickly and efficiently. By making the platform more intuitive, easier to use, and introducing even more benefits, our developer clients are truly set up for success in the free mobile app economy.”
The platform changes have been through a comprehensive beta program this year prior to today’s launch. To start utilizing the improved technologies, app developers can sign up at www.leadbolt.com/developers-signup/.

New Developer Portal Experience – Re-envisioned from the ground up with a significant refresh that modernizes the UI experience whilst delivering exactly what is needed from a portal. With this refresh, it’s even simpler to get started, whilst the comprehensive reporting and analytic depth appreciated by the experienced user is simply a click away.

Advertisers can take advantage of Leadbolt’s double density creative support and developers will benefit from the increased engagement levels generated by Leadbolt’s intuitive ad formats.
Updated SDKs - Leadbolt’s iOS and Android SDK have been updated to take advantage of these Next Generation platform changes and deliver an even better in-app experience. Leadbolt’s Quickstart ads can get developers integrated in seconds. Developers using popular app development environments or mediation platforms can also fast-track their integrations with one of Leadbolt’s support SDK frameworks and platform wrappers.
Native Ads program – App developers looking to build Native Ad experiences on top of Leadbolt’s quality ad inventory and ad serving engines can get started easily with Leadbolt’s direct-connect API ad-serving.
