Update:
The Intel XDK just had an update (v1912) correcting an issue where plugins were not installed correctly.. I will check to see it that is the problem.
Issues Addressed:
Corrected the issue with intel.xdk plugins where if you selected the Emulator after selecting to include a plugin, the plugin was marked as "disabled" in the project.xdk file and thus was not included in the test or build uploads. In order for the plugins to work, you had to again deselect/select the plugin.
Corrected and issue where sometimes 3rd party plugins were not getting included in the built application.
Corrected an issue where if you selected the "Standard Cordova Plugins" check box (to select/deselect all Cordova plugins) then quickly selected/deselected individual plugins the list and build packages could get out of sync.

Just tested a build with XDK update v1912, and no change.

No iOS Admob ads for some reason.

The XDK build report states:
"Plugin "com.cranberrygame.phonegap.plugin.ad.admob" (1.0.31) installed."

Is this version compatible with iOS 8.2/8.3?

I've also tested this. I'm not sure if my problem is the same.
I get a white screen then a black screen and that's as far as it gets.
iPad 2, iOS 8.2
-exported to Cordova, no minify, Intel XDK 1912
-tested from the Intel server and from local WiFi. Same result on both.

the problem is not ios 8.X
the problem is you have to update google admob sdk and update the plugin because they change the call for banner and interstitial

@cranberrygame

Any news about an update for iOS? Builds are failing because of the "cordova-plugin-ad-admob" plugin. I take it out and it builds perfectly.

Any help would be great.
