Enhance Comes to iOS 10

FGL is pleased to announce that Enhance™ has been updated to fully support iOS 10!

iOS 10 came with a requirement to support IPv6, which broke a lot of SDKs. We have fixed Enhance™ to be compliant with this requirement and are now vetting our supported SDKs to make sure they support iOS 10.

Some users reported issues with iOS 10 upon launch, and these have now been investigated and fixed! Enhance™ will continue being the fastest way to implement SDKs on Android as well.

ZeroCode – Integrate SDKs without writing a single line of code

Enhance is already the best tool for getting 3rd party mobile services into your app quickly, but it just got even better. With ZeroCode, you can inject certain mobile services into your app without needing to add anything to your project, or even write a single line of code! You can literally integrate them in a few simple clicks.

As you go through the normal Enhance process, you’ll notice 2 new ZeroCode options to choose from. Pre-roll ads and persistent banner ads. You can integrate these ad formats into any iOS or Android app within a couple minutes. We encourage you to try them out on one of your apps to see how fast it really is.

The pre-roll ad placement is fully managed by our dedicated ad ops team, who are constantly mediating ad networks to optimize revenue performance. Since this placement is managed by us, you can check your earnings from the income dashboard on Enhance. We pay you directly every 30 days.

The persistent banner placement is managed by you, and currently only supports Admob (this is expanding soon). You’ll be able to enter whether you want the banner fixed to the top or bottom of your app, as well as have the ability to input your banner ID code from Admob, and choose the size of the banner. You can then alter ad type and refresh rate directly from Admob’s dashboard.

These are just two ZeroCode options out of many we’re hard at work building, and they show just how powerful Enhance really is. We’re excited about the future of Enhance and its ZeroCode options, and we hope you are too!

Enhance™ Spotlight: Clicker Mine Idle Tycoon

Clicker Mine Idle Tycoon

Before FGL got involved, Clicker Mine Idle Tycoon was a good mobile game that was struggling to find an audience.  Elsper, the developer of Clicker Mine, had managed to get some initial players to install his game, but he wasn’t able to get that player base to grow.  What’s more, the player base that was there wasn’t monetizing well.

 

This is something FGL sees over and over again:  a good game that needs a little help to be successful.

 

First statistics

The first thing FGL did was look at the game’s retention data, which turned out to be impressive:

47% of the players return on the day after the installation. (D1 retention)

19% of the players play for at least 1 week. (D7 retention)

8.7% stay in the game for a month (D30 retention)

 

The usual benchmarks FGL advises developers to hit for retention is around the 40%/20%/10% mark (D1/D7/D30), so the Clicker Mine data was very promising.  It was recommended Elsper to move to FGL’s Mobile Platform to leverage the full power of Enhance.

 

Working Together with FGL

Although the game was well-made, the goal was to make it perfect. FGL first provided better art for the game:

Clicker Mine Graphics

 

 

To improve monetization, Elsper used the rewarded videos from the networks supported by Enhance. This type of ad is received well by the players and can be seamlessly integrated into the gameplay.

Reward Ad

In idle games there are plenty of opportunities to utilize these ad formats and they performed very well in Clicker Mine.

 

Growing the Player Base

The task of increasing the game’s audience was the next piece of the puzzle. The solution included:

  • AppStore optimization of the game page
  • Cross-promotion from the other 2,500 mobile games which FGL has on various publisher accounts
  • Involvement of game promotion services

 

Results:

clicker installs

By pushing users to the app, and constantly A/B testing icons, descriptions, and screenshots in the store listing, FGL was able to get significant traction so that organic installs grew to the point where marketing was no longer needed.

 

In parallel, since FGL was fully managing the ads in the game, CPMs increased and the developer started to see a huge boost in daily revenue.

clicker income

Plans for the Future

Following the success of the game on Google Play, Clicker Mine Idle Tycoon will soon be published to the iOS AppStore.  Enhance helped Clicker Mine Idle Tycoon grow its player base and monetize its users more effectively.  If you’d like to experience the fastest way to implement SDK’s like Clicker Mind Idle Tycoon, try Enhance at enhance.fgl.com today!
