Re: Advertising Service - ad sizes

What? It doesn't work? I haven't installed the beta 4 sdk yet. I'll have to give it a go tonight.

Re: Advertising Service - ad sizes

I can't run the latest sim properly on my laptop - I seem to have a driver issue - running Windows 8 on 2008 macbook pro.

 

But, I built with beta 4 SDK and it ran fine on the Dev Alpha device - ads displaying and opening fine.

Re: Advertising Service - ad sizes

I'm starting to hate beta 4. To many workarounds ill have to wait to get my device back to test this no worries. Thanks for the help. If anyone can confirm it works with beta four sim or development that would be great.

Re: Advertising Service - ad sizes

Hi all, I found this post cause I was wondering the same things.

The scale method works but I don't see any ad is it normal ? Or I did something wrong ?

I register myself to adservices.blackberry.com and I set my zoneId, how many time have we to wait before seeing any ad ?

 

Thanks

Re: Advertising Service - ad sizes

Good question. Since setting my zoneid, I haven't seen any real ads. Its been a couple weeks since I did this. There are other threads on this forum about the ad service that indicate multiple weeks of waiting for an ad to show.

Re: Advertising Service - ad sizes

Ok thanks, cause for the user it's ugly to have an empty container if the ad isn't shown.

Re: Advertising Service - ad sizes

What I did was to put a fake banner or placeholder when ads arnt running. That way somthing is alwasy there.
