iCandi – A Mobile App That Rewards You When You View Mobile Ads
Have you seen a cool ad that left you mouth agaped? No doubt, you’ve seen a terrible ad too that left a sour taste in your mouth.
How about the thought of being rewarded for the ads you view on your mobile phone?
That’s what iCandi, a new mobile advertising application is offering mobile consumers. (Note: Link is accessible from your Blackberry or Nokia phone).
iCandi supports static and interactive ads, and enables a two-way interaction between advertisers and consumers.
One of the unique features is that it delivers innovative, effective and profitable promotions directly to demographically classified consumers.
How does it work?
Once you install the application on your mobile phone, it interacts with the mobile device each time a trigger event such as an incoming call, SMS, MMS, Email or even when outgoing calls, SMS, MMS or Email happens.
An advert is displayed on the mobile device screen until you respond to your incoming call, SMS, or any other action.
For example, when a text message or call is placed or received, iCandi delivers a relevant ad, based on the recipient’s profile, on the mobile phone screen along with the mobile phones regular caller information.
A similar app which tried to break into Nigeria sometime ago is MyScreen, though it required mobile operators support.
One of the coolest features of the iCandi app is that consumers get only relevant ads on their mobile devices, based on the information they provide on their personal profile.
With the iCandi app, users can also get coupons in form of Qcodes sent to them via MMS to receive free stuff from eateries, restaurants, and other product/service-related businesses.
The app currently has about 200 users since January 2011 who would benefit from a N250 free airtime give-away next week Monday.
iCandi can sure leave a sweet taste in your mouth. You can download the app here to start viewing ads and getting rewards.
