The report also studied user retention from video ads compared to static ads. It found that users acquired from video ads had a 24% better retention rate than those acquired from other forms of advertising.

Breaking this down further, video ads performed 29% better on iOS over other forms of advertising. Video ads on Android only performed 21% better in terms of retention.

AppsFlyer released another report in February 2017 that found Facebook to be the highest driver of game installs on both Android and iOS. AppLovin placed second on the iOS chart for overall performance.
