Health Pack Games: Benefitting from the switch to Nokia Ad Exchange
Nokia Ad Exchange provides a powerful option to earn from free-to-download apps and to get your apps discovered by more users.
Health Pack Games creates physics based games and has discovered the power of NAX. Michael Kloubkov, the owner of Health Pack
Games, says that since they switched to NAX, advertising revenue has jumped from a few cents a day up to 800 dollars a day.
'It's really incredible,' says Michael, who also notes that it took them less than a day to switch to NAX. A key to their
success has been the way Health Pack Games implement ads in their apps. 'It's all about placement and when you show the ads
that really grabs users' attention,' says Michael. He is also very impressed with the in-house campaigns feature — which enables
you to cross-promote your apps and websites.

Talking about augmented reality André says "the possibilities are endless, that's the great thing about it."
