What is Apple Search Ads?

Apple Search Ads is an acquisition channel that allows iOS app owners to advertise directly to individuals who are actively searching for an app.

Apple Search Ads is a great user acquisition channel, namely because you're advertising to a user who is already looking for an app. The Redbox Search Ads platform, Astra is our automated Apple Search Ads Management Tool. Our proprietary bidding algorithm and visualisation platform elevates your Apple Search Ads campaigns, improves your performance through automated bidding strategies and provides a clean and clear visualisation of your data from impression to install to post-install events.
