Connect additional platforms

With multi-platform apps, you can use the same Adjust app token, event tokens, and link tokens for every version of your app, and create links that automatically redirect to the device's relevant app store.

Warning:
Adjust recommends setting up separate single-platform apps for each platform. Single platform apps record more accurate cost data and integrate smoothly with many partners.
