Usage

As each platform is different, we provide some psudo code below.

  1. You will need to download the json sent from that address.
  2. Then parse it into an object, usally something similar to obj = JSON.parse(jsonString)
  3. Verify api was a success if (obj.success)
  4. Find the ad type depending on the location ads = obj.ad_types['Example 200x200']

There are multiple ads as they should be cycled through. For example, this 200x200 banner would go on a main menu maybe.

So we start at index 0

index = 0

Next time the main menu opens, add 1 to the index or loop around

if ads.length == index + 1
  index = 0
else
  index++

Finally get your banner data

banner = ads[index]

Some banner images need to be resized down to fit with the display. One example, is a intro banner. A close button should be place at the top right.

This following button can be resized and placed as needed.
