Words from our Founders
“What is the Universal App?” This is a question we have often received from publishers. There are a lot of ways to answer this, but we thought the best would be by actually showing publishers what the Universal App is and what it does.
So we created a new page that hopefully does just that:
What do you think? Does the video show you enough? Does it answer your questions? What are some unclear things, and where can we explain things better? What did you like, and what didn’t you like?
Your feedback is greatly appreciated and more valuable than you might think. We listen closely to what our customers tell us, and your feedback will help us improve the Universal App.
You can email your feedback to me directly using firstname.lastname@example.org, and I promise to get back to you. Extra points if you record a short Loom video with your feedback.
