    Hi,

    Have you guys used any ad services in your J2me apps? which service?
    Do you have any recommendations?

    P.S.
    If this thread belongs somewhere else, I apologize.

    Cheers,

    You could have a look at Inner-active's offering. I have no direct experience though, so don't ignore other potential alternaives.

    There also is Smaato, but I am not sure if they do Symbian.

    As far as I know Inner-active is the only company offering non-QT advertisement SDK. We definitely don't want to force user to install QT-bloatware just for advertising. And without QT-dependencies we can also support older phones. If anyone knows other non-QT ad SDKs we would like to know.

    It is difficult. Maybe if you have some customers and write to the company, they will let you port the stuff on your own.

    But other than that, I know little...

    Re: App monetization in Ovi

    Ok, Thanks for the help guys.

    I have integrated both inneractive and Vserv into the next app I'm going to publish. These are the only platforms I could find that support j2me apps. Smaato doesn't support j2me anymore
    (there's a problem getting the user-agent of the device from the code and that's why j2me is the most problematic platform to integrate ads into - the request has to have the same user-agent as the browser once the user clicks).

    Anyway, I'll update the performance and revenues I get from both platforms in this thread.
    If anyone else has any more tips, feel free to share

    Cheers.

    Atre you sure that sending Smaato a nice email asking for J2ME wont do the trick?

    I tried to email their support and this is the reply I got:

    Hi,
    We had some problems last time with some java applications of our publishers and we try to find out a solution for that at the moment.
    The problem: as I know you can't reach system variables out of j2me environment and so you can't detect the original device user-agent of the standard browser.
    Therefore the request and getAd do have another user-agents than the click (that is made by the browser).
    More and more of our ad network partners identify this kind of traffic as fraud and will not monetize it. That's why we decided to block this kind of traffic.

    Hi,
    now this is difficult. Could you theoretically fix it on your own code (aka find out the device ID yourself) and then provide it to the Smaato Lib?

    Not possible with J2me...

    Anyway, my app is live, with inneractive AND Vserv (feel free to download and rate 5 stars ):
    http://store.ovi.com/content/213527
    After a couple of days, one thing I can share is that the average CPC in Vserv is 1.7 cents, and inneractive is 1.3 cents (I use inneractive as a backup for Vserv).
    Basically, I'm not getting rich...
