Re: mobile ads API

I'm currently doing the same thing - I'm not aware of any built in functionality for anything like this. If you contact an advertiser (preferably someone who has worked w/ blackberries before), they can provide you with an overview of how they like to do it. I'm just using the standard Bitmap class to display the banner image, then launching the link in the browser if the user clicks on it.

Re: mobile ads API

so far I've found these two companies:
Quattro Wireless and AdMob

 

did anyone use their API and can recommend which one is easier to use and gives good monetizing results?

Re: mobile ads API

I am unaware of anyone using AdMob within a blackberry application, many people have seen positive results from AdMob on the iPhone.

Re: mobile ads API

Meant to reply to this sooner...  I've used Admob for the iPhone and contacted them about BlackBerry support.  They said that they do not support it at this time.

This isn't available yet, but I wanted to point out that the BlackBerry Advertising Service has been announced.  You can read about it here:

Re: mobile ads API

Expect it to be announced at this year's Dev Con. There are many things that people want to know and RIM is keeping quiet about it.
