iOS iAd Alternatives?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Feb 24, 2016 9:36 pm

With the discontinuation of iAd I wanted to know what some of the Construct 2 iOS game developers were going to use as an alternative that can be easily integrated with a Construct 2 project for iOS?

@0Hayes - will your new game "Thumb Space" be using in game Ads?

My pleasure. Also be careful if you make your iOS release on r223 beta. It have a canvas size bug.

@mars1985 Yeah, its around $5, but the cranberry plugins are more than worth it. I've not field tested chartboost so I can't talk about it financially (though enough people have done) but as for functionality it works fine.

I should also note that I've only ever used their video ads so I can't comment on banner ads.

The only one I can't recommend is admob, you really might as well not bother if the goal is profit. (Field tested with GATE)

@FMFM Thanks again!

@0Hayes thats good to know - I was considering AdMob but it seems like Chartboost would be a better fit for games.

You could try the Revmob. I usually use Chartboost/Admob/Revmob.

@0Hayes @FMFM So it seems the Chartboost reward video kills the app sound :(

@mars1985 Not again? Sigh. In fact, I do not use video ads (just because of this bug). I use only the "Static" setting.
I have done ever since the iOS 8 (because of this audio bug).

@RBuster thanks! Looks like I am going to try using both in my app Chartboost and AdMob.

@FMFM yeah the sound is silenced after the video runs so it looks like I will just have to use "Static" Ads from Chartboost.

I am also going to use AdMob banner since Chartboost doesn't have banner support.

It would be really nice to use reward videos with Chartboost but it breaks the sound...
