Interstitial Ads are a visually immersive advertising format that covers the interface of an app until closed by the user. While an Interstitial Ad can be skipped after a predetermined time limit of 5 seconds, it is designed to capture the user's attention fully, promoting an enhanced user experience.
Typically, Interstitial Ads are displayed at natural transition points within the app, such as between activities or during a game's pause between levels. By leveraging this optimal positioning, the Interstitial Ad can elicit a higher engagement rate and ensure that users remain fully immersed in the app's flow.
When an Interstitial Ad is displayed, the user is provided with a clear and concise choice to either tap on the ad and continue to its destination or close it and return to the app. This aspect of Interstitial Ads enhances the user's sense of control over the ad experience, increasing the likelihood of positive user sentiment towards the ad and ultimately benefiting the publisher's monetization efforts.

Loading an ad is accomplished using the
load() method in the
PAGInterstitialAd class. The
load() method requires an ad slot id, an instance object of
PAGInterstitialRequest, and a
PAGInterstitialAdLoadListener to be notified when ad loading succeeds or fails. The loaded
PAGInterstitialAd object is provided as a parameter in the success callback.
PAGInterstitialRequest is an Ad Loading Manager. It is recommended to be the member variable of the Activity.
Use the method of PAGInterstitialAd to load the ad, and register the PAGInterstitialAdLoadListener callback.
This method is invoked when an ad fails to load. It includes an error parameter of type Error that indicates what type of failure occurred. For more information, refer to the ErrorCode section
This method is executed when an ad material is loaded successfully.
Ad event callbacks need to be registered before displaying an ad. Each method in the event callback corresponds to an event in the ad lifecycle.
This method is invoked when the ad is displayed, covering the device's screen.
This method is invoked when the ad is clicked by the user.
This method is invoked when the ad disappears.
An instance of the PAGInterstitialAd object will be returned when the ad is loaded successfully. Call the
show()method of PAGInterstitialAd to render the ad and it needs to pass in activity, and it must be called in the main thread.
Upon completing the integration, it is essential to ensure that you test your app functionality prior to launching it to end users. It is highly recommended that you employ test ads rather than live ads.
To facilitate the testing process, Pangle offers a "test mode" that is specifically designed to generate test ads for every request. You can seamlessly implement this mode in your app during the coding, testing, and debugging phase, and gain confidence that your app's ad functionality is fully operational before deploying it to end users.
