Heyzap Basic4Android Library and Demo App

Due to popular demand (OK, OK, there were only 2 requests, but that sounds popular enough), here is the Basic4Android Heyzap library along with a demo app on how to use it.

Do sign up with Heyzap with this link if you haven't. They are running a trial for developer reference, and they're giving out to new developers a $10 bonus once you've hit 100k impressions (*T&C apply).

Sign up link.

IMPORTANT!! BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD AND USE THE LIBRARY!

Please note, Google now requires the advertising ID to be used when available on a device for all ad related stuff. Now, if the advertising id is not available on a device, you are allowed to use any other identifier, provided there is a privacy policy detailing this somewhere. I suggest you mention this in a simple privacy policy and link it in your Google Play app page.

Heyzap uses an intent approach to get the advertising id of a device, and falls back to non advertising id when it is not available. Therefore, you don't need to add the google play services thing in, but the privacy policy is a must.


Here is the download of Basic4Android:

Do note, Heyzap mainly show game ads, thus it is more suitable for games or related apps.

Good luck! And I hope you'd feedback on their performance once you've hit the road with them.

Cheers!

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…
