Affle (India) Limited through its subsidiaries (“Affle”), today announced the global launch of the Appnext Out of Box Experience (OOBE) platform powered by the acquisition of Business Assets of DiscoverTech Limited (registered in Israel).
OOBE introduces a major consumer touchpoint in the mobile device lifecycle – dynamic app discovery at initial boot or reset of a device (pre-installed apps/wizards) through its integrations with OEMs and MNOs, enabling them to successfully navigate the first experience with their users. Appnext OOBE is designed with a set of capabilities for advertisers to deeply engage with users, placing their apps in front of new as well as existing highly-intent users at a massive scale as they personalize their devices for the first time.
Affle’s Appnext platform is the leading independent mobile discovery platform providing over 5B daily app recommendations worldwide via 20+ on-device daily interactions that integrate seamlessly with the users’ daily mobile journey. With this addition, Appnext will now provide end-to-end discovery solutions via its self-serve advertising platform to alter the way users discover apps while further strengthening Affle’s vernacular reach
