That's finally starting to happen, although a bit more slowly then some would like. There's just one problem. Making apps for all those different devices isn't easy, and monetizing those videos is even harder. AdRise hopes to provide a solution, by building cross-platform apps that can be watched on multiple different devices, as well as an ad delivery service for monetization.
