Displaying AdMob ads

Hi,

 

Does AppWorld terms allows us to use AdMob to serve ads in our apps?

 

Is there anybody out there who displays AdMob ads in PlayBook applications?

 

Cheers!

Re: Displaying AdMob ads

I've seen smartphone apps with ads from different ad netwroks so I guess you are allowed to use AdMob

 

You can check the Advertising Service forum

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-Advertising-Service/bd-p/ads_serv

 

If I recall it correct someone has even explained how to implement AdMob in a smartphone app

Re: Displaying AdMob ads

Yes I looked there too and found one post that talks about admob specifically http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-Advertising-Service/OS-6-0/m-p/727637/highlight/tr...

But this is on BB phones using admob webos sdk, so I wanted to ask about experiences with admob on PlayBook, as I thougt there is a flash admob sdk that could fit better.

Re: Displaying AdMob ads

Also it would be nice to have a statement from someone at RIM about using external Ad services such as AdMob when BBAS is not available.

Re: Displaying AdMob ads

RIM allows you to use whatever third party Advertising service you want.

 

I have not used Admob, but have previously used Quattro Wireless, and now use Millennial Media.

Re: Displaying AdMob ads

Thanks for info, I thought there would be some limitations because of RIMs own BBAS...

That is good to hear :-)

Re: Displaying AdMob ads

The problems with Admob/WebOS on the PlayBook are:
1) You'll get a very low fill rate, because WebOS is not popular at all with advertisers
2) You can't use anything else because their other SDKs are OS specific and their web ads are made for phones and won't work on the PlayBook (no WAP)

Re: Displaying AdMob ads

@interfaSys thanks for the insight, I was already using AdMob to serve ads on Android and never thought about fill rates...
I'll keep this in mind...
