Very good to scale Android apps in US or MX. I wouldn't use it for scaling iOS Apps in Latin America as they have a very small inventory. The platform is super easy to use and start launching ads. We use it as a complement to Appsflyer.

ironSource has more reach in the USA than other players that are focused on smaller geos. I would also say that Google is a big competitor with its DV360 and we use them as well, but ironSource is more focused on branding and Google provides more options for campaigns that have multiple objectives.
