Game market ads shift to Android following 120% spike in Apple install costs
Apple’s IDFA changes have prompted mobile game marketers to experiment with and increase ad campaigns. Android saw a 120% increase in cost per install (CPI), and iOS increased by 47% CPI, according to Liftoff’s report on the Casual Gaming industry. This, coupled with the impact of the pandemic where many more users were playing and spending money on Casual Games, resulted in a 45.2% increase in CPIs overall in the past year.
