  3. Summary In the first Quarter of 2009 Greystripe and other mobile media companies have turned their attention towards the iPhone because of the incredible advertising and content experience for the end user. At Greystripe we continued to improve our full-screen ad format and recently added support for Flash ads on our network. Agencies and their brands are now able to explore not only a wider creative canvas but also their relationship with their customers through the personal mobile screen. To develop that relationship, understanding the mobile audience is more important than ever. This quarter’s Consumer Insights Report reflects our current focus by illustrating who our iPhone user base is and by highlighting how our user reacted to our new Flash ad format. However, our network of Java publishers and Catalog Partners remain a core part of our business and we’ve included a section looking at the performance of this sector as well. As the mobile industry matures third party verification of campaign performance will become essential. In anticipation of this trend, Greystripe has partnered with several research firms and advertisers to measure the success of campaigns delivered through our network. Most recently we’ve partnered with ComScore on the research side and Axe, LeapFrog, HP, and Burger King on the advertiser side to look at our new Flash ad format. Selected pieces of the results of these studies, specifically those that pertain to our user demographics, can be found in this study. More complete results from these research studies have previously been made public through press releases. As always, we continue to closely monitor our user base and study how they interact with our ad formats. Greystripe believes understanding the mobile audience is key to the future of the mobile advertising industry. In order to continue to grow the free, ad-supported model in mobile, advertisers need the same key audience and engagement metrics that have been applied to other mediums. These benchmarks create successful campaigns which in turn drive a long term commitment to mobile advertising. As the leading rich media mobile advertising network, Greystripe is committed to providing ongoing data to the mobile industry and to advertisers about users of free mobile content. In this report Greystripe summarizes their preferences and demographics. The Data This report is based on data gathered from Greystripe users during the first quarter of 2009 (January 1 through March 31). Genre, title/application, and handset/device preferences as well as country information and iPhone engagement metrics are reflective of our entire user base, while additional statistics are based on surveys run in our network during this time period. The sample size is specified for each of these questions. Some of these surveys were conducted internally and others were conducted by comScore; graphs are labeled to identify who conducted each survey. Unless otherwise stated, all data is based on our U.S. iPhone user base. 3 of 17 | Copyright © 2009 Greystripe, Inc. All rights reserved.
