If you’re still promoting your app with incentivized installs, now is the time to stop and look at non-incentivized installs. AppBrain Promote is one of the many platforms that you can use.

This change, and others, don’t impact the AppBrain SDK. The AppBrain monetize service is still 100% Google Play compliant.
