As per a report by TechCrunch, the company was developing its technology over the last one and a half years, and now after the launch of new product, it would be interesting to see if its able to repeat the same success story again or not. At present, over 15k developers across the globe are actively using the HTML5 based’s desktop browser tool.

Developers have witnessed over 2 million interactive demo sessions using the desktop browser tool. The numbers are good enough for a company that was started only 18 months ago.

Speaking his mind on the new development and its commercial implementation, David Truong was quoted as saying, “The cost is very similar to video ads – cost per completed demo. We’re essentially creating the industry standard, so are still experimenting with ad unit costs. We’ve had a lot of interest to charge CPI (cost per install), but based on the high quality of the users (lifetime value).”

He further added, “Due to our infrastructure and economics, we’re able to cost our ads at a very similar – and sometimes the same – as current ad offerings like video or standard CPI campaigns. A good industry standard CPI cost for high quality users could be between $2-$3 per install.”
