Ad Catalog for Android, is a sample project that demonstrates how to incorporate ads into your application using the Google AdMob SDK.
“Ad Catalog shows you two implementations for standard banner ads. You can select the size of the ad that is displayed on the Banners screen by selecting either the 320×50 standard banner ad or the 300×250 medium rectangle ad,” informs Eric Leichtenschlag, of AdMob Team.
In addition to display ads, Ad Catalog “demonstrates various use cases for interstitial ads. Ad Catalog provides examples on how to include interstitial ads in between game levels, before loading a YouTube video, and in between a screen swipe. There is also an option to receive a splash screen interstitial ad. If enabled, the app will load and display an interstitial ad the next time it starts up,” added Leichtenschlag.
Today, AdMob team posted a walkthrough video to help you you guide you through the entire setup process, from downloading the source code to running it on an emulator.
He said, that in the next version, the team plan to add examples of banner ads in various advanced layouts.
The first version of the Android Ad Catalog source code can be downloaded from the google-mobile-dev project. The only preconditions are that you have Eclipse installed as well as an Android SDK version 3.2 or higher.
