CJPAdController 1.7.1

CJPAdController is a singleton class allowing easy implementation of iAd and Google AdMob ads in your iOS app. It supports all devices and orientations, and works on iOS 6.0+

Features

  • Choose whether to show both iAd and AdMob, or just one of them
  • Choose whether iAd or AdMob is your default ads, falling back to the other if your default is unable to load an ad
  • Choose to display ads at either the top of bottom of your views
  • Specify a time delay for when to start showing ads in a view
  • Automatically hides from view if there are no ads to display
  • Support for hiding ads from users who have purchased a "Remove Ads" In-App Purchase (assumes you store a boolean value for this in NSUserDefaults)

OS/Device Compatibility

  • Works on iOS >= 6.x (use v1.6.3 if you need to support iOS 5.x)
  • Works on all iPhone and iPad screen sizes in both portrait and landscape orientations

Adding to your project

Method 1 - CocoaPods

CocoaPods is the simplest way to get started. Just add pod 'CJPAdController' to your Podfile and run pod install.

Method 2 - Old School

1. Drop the CJPAdController and GoogleMobileAdsSdk folders into your project. NOTE: You may wish to check if there is a newer AdMob SDK available, you'll need at least version 7.0.0.

2. If you're working on a new project you shouldn't need to do anything else. If it's an older project then depending on its settings you may need to manually link all the required frameworks, if so, make sure the following frameworks are linked to your project:

For iAd:

  1. iAd.framework
  2. AdSupport.framework

For AdMob:

  1. AudioToolbox.framework
  2. AVFoundation.framework
  3. CoreGraphics.framework
  4. CoreTelephony.framework
  5. MessageUI.framework
  6. StoreKit.framework
  7. SystemConfiguration.framework
  8. EventKit.framework
  9. EventKitUI.framework

Usage

CJPAdController will automatically display ads at the top or bottom of your view. It is designed to be used with either a UINavigationController or UITabBarController.

1. #import "CJPAdController.h" in your AppDelegate.m.

2. In application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions, configure CJPAdController to your liking using the sharedInstance:

    [CJPAdController sharedInstance].adNetworks = @[@(CJPAdNetworkiAd), @(CJPAdNetworkAdMob)];
    [CJPAdController sharedInstance].adPosition = CJPAdPositionBottom;
    [CJPAdController sharedInstance].initialDelay = 2.0;
    // AdMob specific
    [CJPAdController sharedInstance].adMobUnitID = @"ca-app-pub-1234567890987654/1234567890";

3. Set up your navigation/tabbar controller as usual, then tell CJPAdController to start serving ads in it.

    [[CJPAdController sharedInstance] startWithViewController:_yourNavController];

4. One more thing... you'll need to set the window's rootViewController to the sharedInstance of CJPAdController

    self.window.rootViewController = [CJPAdController sharedInstance];

Configuration Options

Choosing which ad networks are used, and which is preferred

CJPAdController assumes you will be using both iAd and AdMob as that is precisely what this class was written for. By default both will be used and iAd will be the preferred option. You can override this by passing the array in a different order (the first value in the array will be set as your preferred ads), you can even exclude one of the networks if you wish.

[CJPAdController sharedInstance].adNetworks = @[@(CJPAdNetworkAdMob), @(CJPAdNetworkiAd)];

Choosing the position of the ads

By default, ads will slide up from the bottom of the view and be pinned there. Alternatively, you may wish to reverse this and have them slide down and stay at the top of your view.

[CJPAdController sharedInstance].adPosition = CJPAdPositionTop;

Delay the appearance of ads after app has launched

By default, ads will be requested as soon as your app is launched. You can delay this by providing an NSTimeInterval, the following code would wait 2 seconds after your app has launched before requesting an ad:

[CJPAdController sharedInstance].initialDelay = 2.0;

Use within custom view controllers

If you are trying to implement CJPAdController in a custom view controller that isn't a subclass of UINavigationController or UITabBarController, you may see issues causing ads to display incorrectly or not at all. In this case it is possible to override the isNavController property which some users have had success with.

[CJPAdController sharedInstance].overrideIsNavController = YES;

More

There are a number of AdMob specific options that can also be configured, as well as a number of general methods for hiding, removing, restoring ads etc. AdMob ads may also be targeted based on your users' age, gender and location. Please read the comments in the header file before using any of these. You can see an example of these in the demo project, furthermore, the header file is well commented with information on what each method does and how you might want to use them both in testing or in production.
