Evolution of Ignite Platform
Ignite 1.0 set a new standard for app delivery and device monetization. Legacy preloads often took months and delivered outdated, apps that users couldn't remove. With Ignite, operators saved time, cost and improved the customer experience by delivering the latest apps.
Building upon the original Ignite foundation, Ignite 2.0 introduced increased functionality via new delivery methods for the operator. Features included a startup wizard, SDK, and the ability to integrate with external systems – ultimately providing operators more options, and more flexibility.
Focused on improving the customer experience, Ignite 3.0 reflects a step-change in app delivery and discovery. Ignite Delivers is an innovative way to provide users frictionless access to the hottest apps. New integrable pay options enable simple one-click payments and folders optimize app discovery and recommendation through a relevant, contextual approach.
