iOS 14: get ready

Apple’s App Tracking Transparency enforcement is set to happen early-spring (late March/early April). Thus, it is urgent to review the advancement of the situation and prepare for the changes to come. All major networks and tracking tools are now ready which allow you to perform tests and anticipate this change.


Staying up to date on the changes

If you haven’t already seen them, we recommend you to watch our 4 videos that we prepared on the topic. Especially the video 2 & 3 which are the most important to understand what is at stake:

iOS 14 [PART 1] – prepare your acquisition campaign – Context:

iOS 14 [PART 2] –  prepare your acquisition campaign – User consent pop-up 

iOS 14 [PART 3] – prepare your acquisition campaign – SKAdNetwork

iOS 14 [PART 4] – prepare your acquisition campaign – FAQ:


=> it is very important to discuss this with all stakeholders i.e. all the following teams devs, product, data, etc. Impact of the incoming changes are really of interest to all departments involved in the app strategy.


Ask the right questions

– Will we prompt the consent pop-up? If yes, how will it be prompt? Shall we show a pre-prompt message? 

– Is my tracking tool’s SDK updated to support SKAdNetwork?

. AppsFlyer : 6.0.3 or more.

. Adjust : 4.23.3 or more.

. Branch : 0.35.0 or more.

. Kochava : 4.0 or more.

– Has the integration of SKAdNetwork started already?


 Prepare your app

Your iOS app has to integrate SKAdNetwork. There are different ways to proceed with the integration:

Directly on your side, this allows you to make your own setup of the 6-bit conversion value however you should be very cautious and think carefully of the event mapping otherwise you could lose some data.

Via Facebook SDK which will be based on Facebook Events model (i.e. standard events) so the tracking partner and all sources will receive the data in Facebook format

Via your tracking tool SDK that will enable you to choose a model tailor to your app’s specificities.  

Addict strongly recommend to go for the third option as you will have a consistency in your data and you’ll be sure that everything works as it should be and the way you want.  

WARNING : only one SDK can manage events through the SKAdNetwork.



Addict and the industry estimates a low rate of IDFA collection (see video [PART 2]) from the consent pop-up => whether to integrate it or not should not be the priority.

 In order to continue getting data on your acquisition campaigns, there are two priorities: integrating the SKAdNetwork and configuring the 6-bit conversion value correctly with the help of your tracking prvider and Addict in order to select the right model for your app

Given the short amount of time remaining, we can’t stress enough how important it is to start focusing on every aspect of this dev.

Dating apps: What are the User Acquisition constraints?

Dating apps need acquisition to support their growth, revenue, and number of active users. Nevertheless, they are subject to constraints that are specific to this vertical.     Choosing a strategy   Before launching your campaigns, you need to think about the overall strategy for your app and your objectives:     – Gender distribution: Separate by gender and tailored content to make sure you can control the investment and, therefore, the recruitment needs for each gender.     – Objectives by gender and, therefore, adapted tracking: Make sure that the tracking on your MMP has been correctly tagged so you can track your performance in the best possible way, even if the events being tracked are different.     – Objectives by country: it is also important to analyze app awareness in each country and for each gender as this will particularly affect the types of campaigns launched and the distribution of investments.     – Investments according to seasonality: Dating apps are particularly affected by seasonality (vacations, back to school, weekends, Valentine’s Day, etc.).

Our creative best practices

A few months ago, we discussed the importance of creative in your mobile acquisition campaigns and how to find creative that works and positively impacts your performance. How do you achieve this goal? Here are our creative best practices:     Personalize the message according to the various targets     – The creatives must be tailored to each type of target audience.   – This is even more important as the arrival of iOS 14 has restricted targeting options. The creative is thus a different way of targeting.   – It is therefore crucial to understand your users’ motivations, needs and centers of interest. But also their fears, what stops them, what will make them hesitate to click.   – This reflection on users and the levers to make them move on to action must be conducted upstream in order to brief the creative teams in a relevant fashion and produce effective creatives without losing time.   – Be open to all types of tests, even the most daring, as no-one knows what may be effective and catchy.   For the Cityscoot campaign, personalization of creatives allowed for procuring a CPA => 30% above average.       For […]
