The Top Mobile Ad Networks For Apps and Games
” What are the best ad networks for my mobile app or game?”
“Which ad networks give the best CPM for game and app publishers?”

You’ve drank 500 red bulls and caused some irreparable liver damage, but you’ve finished your best app ever. It’s time to make the most money from your app by monetizing it with advertising – but only if it were that simple. First off, there’s generally 3 different kinds of ad units available in mobile apps.

– Interstitials (full screen to close to full screen) Popups
– Video Ads (Highest CPM and Conversion)
– Banner/Native Ads

Once you decide what type of advertising model best fits you app, you should try to find a network that fits your needs. Some like Tapjoy have built in incentives for rewarding in game currency or you can use Vungle and program your own rewards for watching videos.

We’ve gathered a collection of the top ad networks for games and apps with the highest paying CPMs available with excellent reputations. You’ll find the list below information on iOS, Android, Windows, and Blackberry compatibility along with the links to the SDKs and instructions on how to install them into your app.
