Re: My app only makes request for add but does not show adds ?

This probably depends on the number of requests, and the availability of ads.

I don't know how it is implemented in the BlackBerry Adservices, as I haven't used that one before. But for other ad services your app will only show ads after some time. So if your app is used for some time by your users, ads are starting to appear. Because then your app is valuable for advertisers, and ads will automatically added to your account. I think it takes about 24 hours of app usage for other ad services to show ads.
As mentioned earlier, I have no idea how the AdServices of BlackBerry work, so I could be completely wrong. But you could open your app several times a day and it could well be that ads will only start to appear the next day.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

I mainly make Android apps which I then port. So I mainly use AdMob as ad service.

I don't think so. But I port my Android apps to BlackBerry 10, so then I could indirectly use Admob on BlackBerry10.

I was an Android developer before I started developing for BB10. But I will probably redevelop most of my apps to BlackBerry Cascades, but that is for when I have some more time? Then I will problably have to use AdServices of BB too (I don't know if there are any equivalents..).

Re: My app only makes request for add but does not show adds ?

I have already checked with adsense, but it is not available for mobile applications, This link might help.

 

I am planning to start developing for android, i might ask this question out from this forum but could you guide me on how to develop applications for android and what are the best practices for getting good downloads?
