Airpush Banner Ads

By popular demand, Airpush banner ads are now available for our developers to use in Andromo 4.4.0.

Banner Ads

Banner ads are small rectangular ads that occupy a small portion of the screen while the user is viewing an activity within the app. They are usually shown at the top or bottom of the screen, and don’t interfere very much with the use of the app.

What is required to use Airpush ads?

In order to use Airpush ads in your app, you will need to sign up for an Airpush developer account, add your app to the account, and then configure your app to use your Airpush API Key and App ID. (Please refer to Setting up Airpush Ads for step-by-step instructions.)


* Currently only banner ads are available as our testing has revealed some issues with the Airpush 360 and interstitial ad formats. We have contacted Airpush and may release these other formats when the issues are corrected in a future version of the Airpush SDK.
