Native ads refer to a form of advertising that allows for customization of the ad's appearance, seamlessly blending it with the app's design to provide a natural and engaging experience for users. With native ads, you have the creative freedom to design the ad's layout, look and feel, and placement within your app, thereby enabling you to achieve a cohesive and integrated advertising experience.
It's important to note that Pangle currently supports four different native ad formats outside of the Chinese Mainland, including a large image with a 1.91:1 ratio, 1280*720 video, square image, and square video. As a developer, it's essential to ensure that the native ad format and size comply with Pangle's specific requirements to ensure optimal ad performance and user experience.
Create an app and native ad placement on the Pangle platform
Native ads are ad assets that are presented to users via UI components. It can be formatted to match your app's visual design. When a native ad loads, your app receives an ad object that contains its assets, and the app is then responsible for displaying them.
Broadly speaking, there are three steps to successfully implement Native Ads:
Loading an ad is accomplished using the
loadAdWithSlotID: request: completionHandler:() method on the
PAGLNativeAd class. The
loadAdWithSlotID the method requires an ad slot id, an instance object of
PAGNativeRequest, and a
PAGNativeADLoadCompletionHandler to be notified when ad loading succeeds or fails. The loaded
PAGLNativeAd object is provided as a parameter in the success callback.
PAGNativeRequest is an Ad Loading Manager. It is recommended to be the member variable of the Activity.
Use the method of PAGNativeAd to load the ad, and register the PAGNativeADLoadCompletionHandler 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 object is returned 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.
- (void)adDidShow:(PAGLNativeAd *)ad
This method is invoked when the ad is displayed, covering the device's screen.
- (void)adDidClick:(PAGLNativeAd *)ad
This method is invoked when the ad is clicked by the user.
- (void)adDidDismiss:(PAGLNativeAd *)ad
This method is invoked when the ad disappears.
@property (nonatomic, strong, readonly) PAGLMaterialMeta *data;
Returns a PAGLMaterialMeta ad data object
@property (nonatomic, weak, nullable) id<PAGLNativeAdDelegate> delegate;
Set up ad callback delegate
@property (nonatomic, weak) UIViewController *rootViewController;
Set up ad rootViewController
- (void)registerContainer:(__kindof UIView *)containerView
withClickableViews:(NSArray<__kindof UIView *> *_Nullable)clickableViews;
Calling time: The developer must call the PAGLNativeAd ad object before displaying it; this method is used to register ad billing events and ad interaction callback events
container: ad view
clickableViews : Ad component View collection that needs to register for ordinary click events
Remove registered advertising billing events and advertising interaction callback events
Now you have finished the integration. If you wanna test your apps, make sure you use test ads rather than live, production ads. The easiest way to load test ads is to use test mode. It's been specially configured to return test ads for every request, and you're free to use it in your own apps while coding, testing, and debugging.
