With over one million subscribers in Japan and over three million subscribers in South Korea already, AdLatte is rapidly becoming the app to watch. By viewing advertisements placed on AdLatte and answering quizzes on their smartphones, AdLatte users earn points that can be exchanged for items such as gift cards or donations to worthy causes. Users can also share advertisements on social networking services such as Twitter and Facebook to earn even more points.

AdLatte's unique strategy of putting users in control of how they earn points offers advertisers new opportunities to reach their audience, while message awareness and understanding are also improved, since advertisements on AdLatte are unskippable. AdLatte's CPI advertising1 does not require an application SDK2 installation, which makes the process of beginning an AdLatte promotion much easier and smoother than traditional methods.

Through the combination of GREE Advertising's wide customer network with AppDisco's powerful promotional tools, the two companies aim to create new promotional opportunities for developers and advertisers alike.
