cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-admob-free --save --variable ADMOB_APP_ID="<YOUR_ANDROID_ADMOB_APP_ID_AS_FOUND_IN_ADMOB>"
Since version 7.42 of the Google AdMob Mobile Ads SDK for iOS, you must add the ADMOB_APP_ID to your
Info.plist, which you can do by adding the folowing inside the
<platform name="ios"> section in your
<config-file target="*-Info.plist" parent="GADApplicationIdentifier"> <string>YOUR_IOS_ADMOB_APP_ID_AS_FOUND_IN_ADMOB</string> </config-file>
cordova plugin add [GIT_URL] is not supported.

While the Ionic community have provided an Ionic Native Plugin, plugin users need more examples and tutorials.
As I (@ratson) don't use Ionic myself, it would be great if some experienced Ionic developers could help answering questions or come up with more examples. HELP WANTED HERE.
