News / Apps Reviews Pay by search app of StartApp is  downloaded 150 million times.
New Israel-based StartApp doesn\\\'t have much time for in-app ads and micro-payments. It reckons the former only pays when ads are clicked by mistake and the latter makes for a poor UI.So it came up with an alternative: present users with a bookmarked search engine within StartApp enabled apps, and use that to monetise.In this scenario StartApp pays Android developers $50 for every 1,000 downloads of an app that embeds its API.

Whenever a user searches the web via this portal, the developers gets a cut.It could be controversial like, say, Tapjoy was before it. But StartApp says its search icon can be deleted, and that it now integrates with 3,500 Android apps.
