on the Torch

Has anyone found this doesn't work on the Torch?

 

I have run it on the simulator and the app freezes and then comes up not responding.

 

Same happens on the handheld, but it works fine on other devices.

Re: on the Torch

Wow thanks.

 

Is it me or does this advertising service seem completely useless?

 

Doesn't support OS 6 and the number of adverts seem quite small.  I'm always getting the same one.

 

I cant deploy it in my app if it doesnt support OS 6

Re: on the Torch

Indeed, not supporting OS 6 is inexcusable

Re: on the Torch

Despite holding out till after DevCon for the Advertising SDK, I've had to abandon using it in my latest app.  It seems too unstable and pre-release.  Doesn't work on the torch, seems to cause frequent white screens on 9300 and just seems to have ONE ad in the UK!

 

Very disappointed unfortunately I really wanted to use this.

Re: on the Torch

To be an early adopter is not an easy thing :smileyhappy: You can just exclude the banner for OS 6.0 and let it run for the other OS.

 

Meh, I just earned my first 0.04$!!!! Such a good feeling :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:

Re: on the Torch

$0.04 lol!

 

I think I made a whopping $0.25 just testing the app before release :-)

 

I was starting to think that advertising might be a viable approach.

 

I approached Nexage but they said they weren't interested unless I could guarantee 5 million impressions per month.
