We spoke with Richard Baxter founder of SEO Gadget and he stated: “We have been working with Apple Search Ads since their launch in the US and we are very pleased with the results. Initially the interface needed work and targeting was off, but I believe Apple has made progress.”

According to Apple “The App Store is the primary place where people come to find apps. In fact, over 65% of downloads come directly from a search on the App Store. Put your app at the top of relevant search results and connect customers directly to download in one tap.”

So, if you’ve developed an iOS app and want to generation quick engagement and traction, it’s time to Apple Search Ads.
