The company has partnered with over 10,000 developers and advertisers worldwide, including NHN, Kakao, Line, Metaps, InMobi, VNG, VTC Online and FPT Online to bring highly localized content to end users. Appota also runs highly engaged communities in popular social media outlets.
Core products include:
1) onClan, the first social mobile gaming platform that puts a laser focus on increasing gamer engagement
2) Gamehub – the first mobile game portal providing video and editorial reviews and gift-codes for popular games
3) Appdaily – an affiliate tool that helps boost user acquisition through in-store pre-installation of games and apps. Investment in several leading Vietnamese game studios including Joy Entertainment enables the platform to cater to some of the best mobile games used worldwide.
Appota continues to innovate, fostered in part from the numerous international awards it has won, including “The Most Disruptive 2012" and "The Best in Asia 2013,” granted by The Founder Institute. Appota was sole representative from Vietnam in the 4th Global Entrepreneurship Summit in 2013.
