@tonycelestino, you will have to get around the api. buzztouch uses google 2.2 (release 8)and admob requires android 3.2 (release 13). If you can successfully figure out a work around PLEASE let us know!

Ops!

I'm sorry guys I'm 100% iOS for now. Didn't realized this was a post for Android.

But anyway, I will post here if it was successful or not.

I have not messed with iOS yet, (having some issues with Virtual Machine as i use a PC), but my understanding is that iOS uses iAD and there is no need for adMob...again, if others have better info that would be awesome

No worries @Raoul the update should be approved (or not) next week, by Wednesday.

I've tried before to implement a hybrid solution that would show iAd and if it failed it would call Admob, it worked on the simulator but not on the live app (it only shows iAd).

By the way I only tested this on 4.3 and 5.0 iphone. Its not tested on iPad.

Hey @ASusoeff... You're going to feel some pain trying to use OS X on VM. =)

About the ads. You're half right...

Apple has the amazing iAd network, it gives good $$$ and it has beautiful ads. The problem is that its fill rate is very low and in some parts of the globe it just doesn't work yet. That's why so many people want to have both iAd and Admob on their apps and in some cases just Admob.

You shouldn't use a virtual machine when it comes to Mac and Xcode. Too slow and WAY too laggy.

''buzztouch uses google 2.2 (release 8)and admob requires android 3.2''

I'm almost certain that's a typo on the admob site. 2.2 works just fine. They say you just need an admob SDK released after March 2011 (which would be Android 2.2). 3.2 hadn't been released on that date and there haven't been any SDK updates since then.

@ravyed, if you got it to work then PLEASE show me how. Perhaps you can create a tutorial walk through for the whole group. I have had a hell of a time trying to get anything to work with v1.5. Went to v2.0 to try and see if that would work better but so far no luck. My app is currently free and the whole reason for a "free" app would be the advertising. A bit discouraged in this regard, especially since I have had about 200 downloads in the one week of having it on the market

@Raoul, I agree with you and have been thinking about going ahead and buying a Mac as well as the several PC that I already have...just not sure about making that comitment yet...but that seems like it would be a good as a new topic for another area of the forum.

It is an amazing easy to use OS, very high powered and very fast. Consider if you want to make a comitment and have the price, but you should think on the correct model and the type of Mac before you buy.

Hey guys, I'm glad to announce that the AdMob integration for iOS worked fine!!! I will do a Tutorial later today on how to integrate it (its very easy actually) and post here.

Meanwhile you guys can check it out here http://bit.ly/quizflamengo please try the app out and let me know of any problems you find. Its iOS only and I'm not sure if I set it to 4.3 or 5.0.

Please download it and tap on an Ad... just to test it ;)

Don't forget to review it... 5 stars would be good!!! =D

Don't worry Raoul!

I can't post it now because I'm not at my office and I don't have access to the code from here.

Did you download the App? Did it worked for you?
