Publisher Perspective

The report also delves into what the most ads provides the best user experience, and Rewards Ads taking home 82% of the votes

When discussing with the publishers the best systems for monetizing their users, 75% of them feel the reward ads are the most effective means.  Although i seriously disagree with this statement, its all a matter of perspective and what type of game you’re building.  I generally see only 10% of my revenue come from ads and 90% from IAP, but thats just me and my product.
