The web era had SEO. For years mobile was all about App Store rankings. As install fatigue starts to erode the early techniques, what are the new ways to get content discovered and app installed?
One of the newest strategies for app discovery is forming partnerships with OEMs, carriers, and other distributors. As Chris Cunningham of online software distributor IronForge wrote, “The right kind of strategic partnerships between device makers, mobile carriers, and ad networks on the macro level will enable more effective connections between developers and users on the micro level.”
