Has anyone used admob in their Android apps? If so, what is your experience
so far?


Experience of using admob

 The implementation is straight forward. The reporting is nice.

I didn't want the ads to show up in horizontal orientation as it takes up
too much screen estate this way. As I manage configuration changes
(orientation changes) myself that took me hours to get it right and was one
of the reasons that I don't use it anymore. If you don't manage
configuration changes on your own, that shouldn't affect you.

Moneywise it was very unexciting, but that was to be expected as I don't
have that many users and probably never will (I am not developing a game). I
implemented it to release my full version until Google opens the Android
Market outside the US and UK and wanted to prevent users from complaining
afterward that they now have to pay for something that seemed to be free
But meanwhile I learned that some users will complain no matter what, so I
removed the ads again.

1. in case of building adb composite gadget dynamicall

Hi~ there,

I've been trying to build "g_android"(ADB Composite Gadget)

In case of building statically, ADB and Mass-storage are working well.

But dynamical building doesn't work, I have no idea how to solve this

My init.rc add g_android.ko using "insmod /lib/modules/g_android.ko".

When I connect the usb cable into a Windows PC,
the target device meets Kernel Panic as the bottom of this e-mail.

My CPU is S3C6410, it runs under linux kernel 2.6.27

Can any one give some help?

Hoping that each day will you feel better

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

2. Bad sign: Single Content apps are coming to Android

I am seeing a few "Single Content" apps in the Market now. For example, this


Saiyuki Ep 1 Anime 25:00 minutes stream. Action/Adventure/Comedy Once demons
and man lived together in harmony.But when a band of rogue demonic forces
sought to resurrect a diabolical monster,dark spiritual energy began to
cover the land and the demons decided man-kind was no longer friend but
rather food.

Looks like legit apps are going to be drown in a sea of singles ....
