Today, app developers need marketing more than ever, but they have less money to spend on it. That's because many of the App Store's over half
a billion apps are free. Serial entrepreneur Terry Hsiao saw this problem and created the App Growth Engine - tools to acquire more users for iOS
games by capturing phone numbers, enabling SMS invitations, and tracking analytics.
Hsiao's company, Hook Mobile, has funding from IDG-Accel, Amplifier Ventures, ACTA Capital, and 500 Startups. Its previous products, a variety of
cloud services for mobile (e.g., a tool to check whether certain phone numbers can receive text messages), boasted customers such as CBS, Entertainment
Tonight, and Paramount Pictures.
