Hello new Sushi Ads
Back in November 2013, we introduced Sushi on iOS, our first native and full screen ad unit. It was our own version of what native ad should be and feel like on mobile. Since then, we released other ad units: Uramaki, Sashimi and Udon Noodle.
Today, we are pleased to announce a completely revamped Sushi for the Appsfire iOS SDK. This evolution improves the previous one on many aspects: this new Sushi displays vibrant colors, stunning retina assets and ultra fluid animations in an interstitial way. We can’t deliver our secret sauce here, but trust our words, two different apps can’t have the exact same Sushi design.
Our recently updated Cross-Promotion feature is fully compatible with this new design.
Who said mobile ads couldn’t marry In-App Purchase?
Have you ever wondered how you could manage ads and premium users in the same app? How great would it be if ads could be linked to an IAP mechanism?
To make managing premium accounts easier, we’re excited to announce In-App Purchase Ad Removal Prompt for iOS. It is a new handy feature in the Appsfire iOS SDK 2.4 that lets you prompt users to go premium after they have dismissed ads in your application.
This is how it works:
- You choose the prompt frequency, either based on the number of days between ad impressions or on the number of ads dismissed
- When the user dismisses ads and the capping is reached, we prompt him about the premium option and IAP available
- Depending on the user decision, we drive him to your in-app purchase logic and mechanism
Android developers, you asked, we listened
We are very happy to announce the release of a major update of the Appsfire Android SDK, now with Monetization features. This features consist of two ad units: the Sushi with its all new design and our native in-stream format: Sashimi. As a publisher, you can now integrate native ads in many different ways into your Android application. Go build something awesome with Appsfire + Android!
The Engagement part of our Android SDK is still available with the same features as before: notification badge and wall powered by native push notifications. Note that our SDK is fully compatible with the new Google Cloud Messaging push service and the Google Identifier for Advertising.
