"We have grown AdDuplex organically for more than two years and now it is time to take it to the next level. It is a great pleasure to have Practica Capital on board, helping us achieve our goal of empowering developers on Windows Phone and Windows platforms to succeed."

So what's the capital going to be used for? AdDuplex plans to utilise the funding to accelerate growth by introducing new opportunities in its network and developing new products. Be sure to check out the official website for more information.

  • Is AdDuplex a Microsoft company like Adsense???
  • There are no stupid questions.
  • AdDuplex is for promoting apps
  • AdDuplex is like Adsense for WP apps, but it's not owned by Microsoft.
  • In the last podcast Alan mentioned that AdDuplex is not primarily for monetization it is for app exsposure so it wouldn't be an alternative to AdSense.
  • Sorry for oftopic, but does this app "Google Maps" by Live Maps, uses Google's POIs on downloaded NOKIA HERE Maps...

  • Congrats to Alan and the AdDuplex team, I listen to his AppBizDev podcast, good stuff for WP8/Win8 developers.
  • Yes, good podcast. And if you're not a listener, and you live in Lithuania he's looking for a developer to hire.
  • It's an Ad Excange for WP and W8 (4 lines of text); you install SDK and you display ads of others on your app in exchange of your ads being posted. 80% of display generated are for your needs, he keeps 20% for reselling to his customers.
