One of the pillars of the app marketing are formats - how information about apps is packed and presented to people on various advertising platforms.

It's one thing when it's about connecting via ads a mobile app with people who need that app, it's another when retaining app users is at stake. Mobile app users churn is a continuous challenge app marketers face around the globe, from small indie developers start-ups to big app development powerhouses and brands.

Quotes from Aykut Bal:

"How to engage users was at the center of it all. When you fail to engage your app users, you're loosing them.

The cheapest way to grow is not acquiring the users in the cheapest way but keeping them inside the app."
