App Generator - Advertising - What kind of App?

Creating an app using the generator and when setting up advertising I am not sure what kind of app to call it (Webworks  / BlackBerry / BB10 / BB10 Native)?

 

Thanks.

Re: App Generator - Advertising - What kind of App?

I had the same question. I put Cascades for now on the assumption it's either that, or won't matter, or that I can change it.

I just asked this in the Portathon webcast and someone said he remembered the Mippin fellow onstage at one of the events saying it was Native.

Okay, got an answer directly from one of the Mippin guys in the webcast:

David Fraser (BBAG): Regarding the ad service for BB10 it's Cascades.

Interesting.. I have been picking WebWorks as the app type for App Generator type apps.

 

Hope its not rejected because of this!

Still not sure which one is correct since the App Generator doesn't just produce BB10 apps.

[ Edited ]

I agree how can one ads I'd work for different types of apps now that they have broken them down. 

 

Can someone from BlackBerry ads service please confirm the correct setting.

 

Mippin makes one app for multiple device so how do they make ads work on both bbos and bb10 effectively. 

 

I generated a lot of request but less than half the impression it wasn't that way before.
