Basic4Android Millennial Media Library


Here you go folks. Millennial Media library for Basic4Android is attached.

Please note that it has not been extensively tested. And I am having poor fill rates. So you are my official guinea pigs! Muahahahhaha!

What I would appreciate is some feedback on it's workings please. Please let me know if it works fine for you, as a lack of feedback would mean a lack of updates and new libraries from me :)

I have only tested the top and bottom banner formats, and those are fine for me. I have added the option for interstitials, but I can't seem to get them to work due to low fill rate, please let me know if it works for you.

Add this to your manifest file:

<!-- SDK Activities -->
<activity android:name="com.millennialmedia.android.MMActivity"
android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar"
android:configChanges="keyboardHidden|orientation|keyboard" >
</activity>
<activity android:name="com.millennialmedia.android.VideoPlayer"
android:configChanges="keyboardHidden|orientation|keyboard" >
</activity>

Sample code:


mmedia.initialise("xxxxx", mmedia.GetBannerAdTop, 30, "mmedia")
Activity.AddView(mmedia, 0, 0, 320dip, 50dip)
mmedia.callForAd

Events available for adfailed or adreturned.



Download the jar from MM's own website.

The B4A library for ads is here.

If you need to know how to add the libraries in, please ask in Basic4Android forum.

Good luck!

  2. Hi Bojan,

    Sorry for the suspense :P

    Actually the ad network had/has lots of stuff to sort out yet, and they even had a major bug with their dashboard which I was waiting for them to fix.

    Anyway, it is Heyzap Ads... you can have a look and register here: Heyzap Ads

    For those who want the Basic4Android library for it, I'll get it out soon...

    Good luck!

    1. Hi Ngoro,

      Thanks for the update. MM does have good eCPM when I used them a while back, but their fill rate is quite low for me, thus I am not using them now.

      Plus, I am more interested in CPA networks these days :D

  4. Hey, Bill:

    Thanks for this! The Millennial SDK API has changed a bit in the last two years... any hope for an update on this?

    1. Hi Mark,

      I'm not developing with B4A these days, and have not used MM for ages. I'm afraid there won't be an update from me on this.

      There was a library being developed by John McEnroy or someone on B4A, maybe he is a more suitable person for this?

      Good luck!

Airpush Review - Where is the Promised CPM?

Hi all! How are you doing? Pretty tensed episode here on Airpush, and my opinion to the fact that they aren't playing fair to their developers.

Are you using Airpush? If you are, how's your CPM been doing? Ever since you started?

And if you are not, and you are planning to use it, what is attracting you to it?

Do you know the importance of the first 30 days on Google Play?

When releasing a new app, it is understood that it will rank far down the food chain. After all, your app is new and unproven just yet.

What Google has done on the Play store is that they have given new app an opportunity to live, a chance to get to a more respectable place in the world of the unknown, the Google Play ranking algorithm.

Which mobile advertising network should I use?

When it comes to monetising apps on the Android platform, mobile ads is one of the better options (IAP is probably the other alternative which is doing real good now).

A little while back, someone asked me what networks I use. Now, this is a list of networks I use. Not in all my apps though. And my ad network usage changes from time to time. So the following are just my choices, you MUST try out what works for you, as mileage really differs from developer to developer, and from app to app.


Preffered mobile advertising networks
The following are my preffered networks, and those that I would be implementing in my apps going forward (performance pending of course).

AppFloodUPDATE: I've dropped AppFlood till the issue here is sorted out.

AppFlood is really an awesome network. 100% of revenue goes to developers. The best payout system (net-anything, seriously!). Innovative ad formats, and a huge selection of ads make up only some of their good points. Their transparency on ads is aweso…
