Android Ad Monetization

You can serve native, video, and interstitial ads very quickly and with little effort using Yahoo App Publishing and the Flurry SDK.


Flurry SDK requires Android API level 10 and higher.

Object-Based API

The Flurry SDK provides you with an object-based API to create objects for Native ads. This means that you can use individual objects to control the lifecycle of an ad.

To take advantage of new Flurry App Publishing features, like Tumblr content sharing, Flurry recommends that you download the new Flurry SDK and integrate your Android app.
