Realizing the frustration that comes with downloading a disappointing app, AdPlay is an app that lets you test games on your mobile devices, without having to install anything.

The try-before-you-buy experience from Taipei-based startup VMFive collects apps from app stores and runs them in the cloud to optimize them for a range of devices. On the developer's side, there's no modifications that need to be made to the gaming app. As a result, the user interface is highly responsive and lag is reported to be quite minimal on the system. This is a great way to get a sense of what games people find the most entertaining, as the app appeals to gamers who don't want to waste their time downloading games they aren't going to enjoy.
