Advertising Cloud Vice President Keith Eadie told me via email that development on the app was started by the team at TubeMogul, the video ad platform that Adobe bought late last year. At the time, Adobe noted that its TubeMogul acquisition boosted video ad capability across channels, including linear TV as well as digital channels.
This new iOS and Android app for smartphones and tablets is free for current customers.
