Freemium Comes of Age.

In a previous blog post, dated April 2011, we shared insights into the different ways of monetizing apps.  Since then we have seen many developers adopt the freemium model as they became more adept at balancing the proportion of free they give away and the premium they charge.

Key of course is increasing traffic (to your app) and securing premium conversions while minimizing cost. In 2011, Djuzz distributed more than  90.7 million downloads of 20,000 free & freemium titles, at no charge to brands and developers.
