Android Overview

1. In Loco Media Ads SDK

Two steps are necessary in order to show Ads in your app with In Loco Media's SDK:

1) Integrate and initialize In Loco Media's SDK
2) Choose your Ad Type, or use Mediation if you already use one

In Loco Media's SDK delivers context-based advertising according to the user's current position and profile.

1.1. Advertisement types

There are 4 types of Ads you can use with In Loco Media.

1) Display Ads are Image-only advertisement in different sizes;
2) Interstitial Ads fill the screen, appearing on top of the current content and allows the user to close it.
3) Native Ads are custom advertisements, with multiple contents that can be customized to the look and feel of your app;
4) Notification Ads appear as a common system notification that will be triggered when the user enters the targeted area.

1.2. Ad Mediation Platforms available

Mediation is a feature that lets you serve ads to your apps from multiple sources. It helps maximize your Fill Rate sending ad requests to multiple networks to ensure you find the best available network to serve ads.

If you already use some type of Mediation in your app, all you will need to do is initialize our SDK, include our adapters for your mediation network and set the configuration on its page. After that, all calls for each AdUnit configured will also use In Loco Media ads.

There are different types of mediation. Follow the instructions about the one you use to request ads from In Loco Media.

1.3. Other Features

Besides monetizing, with In Loco Media's SDK you can also use our features like Analytics, for collecting data, and Targeting, to choose which User Profile is the target for your campaign.

2. In Loco Media Location SDK

If you are not using In Loco's SDK to monetize with ads, you can still use the Location SDK to collect data with Analytics. You can learn how to use this feature here.
