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!

AppBucks Push and Icon Ads - Alternative to Airpush, Leadbolt, SendDroid and StartApp

We developers are always on the lookout for better monetisation options for our mobile apps. With the recent slow down on the mobile advertising scene after the December spending spree, people are starting to question the ad networks. The thing is, there IS a slow down across all networks. It is weird in that in 2012, my revenues kept growing in January and February. Well, it looks like advertisers are also getting savvier and better using their funds on ads. Let me introduce you to AppBucks (referral link).

StartApp Ads - Initial Review and Basic4Android Library

Hey ya all... I've just posted the Basic4Android library for StartApp (this is a referral link). You can get the B4A library here . StartApp is an icon ad network, and they pay on a per-installation basis. StartApp Registration - Get $25 Register for StartApp with my referral link  (click it, I know you want to!), and once your download hits 100 new installs, you'll get a bonus of $25 into your account, and yes, I'll get some bonus too. StartApp First Days Review Well, it looks pretty impressive. An app of mine, more popular in the US had about 157 downloads (users who opt-in for the icon ads) and made $2.51. While another app, with a more global distribution had 296 opt-ins and made $2.09 revenue. It looks like the performance of these opt-in based icon ads could match up to the notification ad format. Give it a go! Cheers! -Bill
