It allows S2S integration. It's the appropriate choice out of all mobile app tracking software as it is very flexible, shows very accurate data, is easy to learn how to use the dashboards, and offers the option to create tailored audiences. It's not so well structured when it comes to reporting, as its dashboard doesn't allow downloading data in bulk by adding different filters.

As for technology and implementation... I think they are superb. But in today's world you can't go around doing whatever you want to stroke your own ego. You have to care for your clients & communicate with them. AdMob loses all respect there. I understand banning those illegal click farm guys in Asia/Africa, but banning a developer in Europe who has nothing to do with click farms, and then refraining to verify their own data collection is absolutely nauseating.

Pros

adjust

  • Tracking installs on mobile app campaigns on Android or iOS, as well as UAC campaigns.
  • Tracking in-app actions on our mobile campaigns.
  • Showing more accurate numbers, since it counts pure installs from new users only without counting re-installs,
  • Counts installs only after first opening of the app, while Google and Apple count also downloads even if the app doesn't get installed or opened after.

  • Well it works really well.
  • No complaints about their technical backing.
  • They do take the pain so your implementation is fairly easy.

Cons

adjust

  • The reporting dashboard is not very easy to navigate, it doesn't offer enough options.
  • You can't download granular level data for all channels at once. Adding this as an option would save a lot of time when analyzing the performance and doing reporting.

  • Theyre customer service is by far the worst ever.
  • They have to stop banning user accounts for no reason. They have been wrong on so many counts, it just will make you wonder which primary school student is giving them info to make such horrendous decisions.
  • Their high handedness is handling cases, they keep giving copy paste client servicing replies, won't own up to it being their fault, and leave you in a lurch absolutely unbothered. This is a black spot on Google.
  • They keep sending you emails with warnings about stuff you haven't even dreamed of doing. Saying absolutely shady stuff like "asking your family to click on ads for you is an invalid activity" What will I earn out of that, 25cents after a 1000clicks? Do you think my 80yr old granny has the energy to keep clicking something for 1000times?
  • They never have the courage to accept they've made a mistake and they may have collected some invalid data without considering all of the circumstances. And if you try to draw their attention to that, they give you a deaf ear. It is really sad, for such an amazing product. The attitude sucks big time.

Alternatives Considered

adjust

Kochava is the most popular one and has a better dashboard, offering many options for visualizing data. Adjust has a poor dashboard in comparison to Kochava, but offers easier integration with SDK and is cheaper. I don't think adjust shares device IDs, though. Its attribution is very accurate and offers very good solutions for fraud prevention

Better rates
Reply very often.
No fake copy paste customer service.
No high handedness in handling cases, they always listen.. And then make decisions, they never brand you a self clicker and ban your account when you are innocent

Return on Investment

adjust

  • It had positive impact because it allows tracking data without sharing it with Google
  • It's easy to integrate with all channels and many platforms, such as AdWords, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • By creating audiences, we've targeted most valuable users to the business

AdMob

  • Before I got into it my other friends told me there are way better Ad providers. But being a Google fan I still signed up.
  • Now I remember writing to AdMob, requesting them to give me earning rates... But they never replied. So zero return on investment. They just keep you guessing.
