What are Push Notification Ads?
Push notification ads are text ads shown in the notification tray of Android™ devices. Unlike traditional mobile ads, these ads are not placed inside apps. Each ad is also tagged with a permanent opt-out link, as well as the name of the app which delivered the ad.
What are Icon Ads?
Icon Ads are sponsored shortcuts that appear on the phone's desktop and link to valuable user content such as mobile search and daily deals. Developers generate revenue for each Icon Ad which is distributed to a device.
What are SmartWall Ads?
SmartWall is a new interstitial mobile ad format which dynamically optimizes between multiple sub-formats such as Rich Media, AppWall, Video and Interstitials. With SmartWall, app developers no longer need to choose between the overwhelming numbers of full-page mobile ad formats available on the market. Via a single SDK, SmartWall determines the optimal full-page ad format to display in real-time based on yield, network connection type, and other parameters. SmartWall generates significantly higher CPMs than other leading full-page ad formats and represents a major leap forward for both developers and advertisers.
Is Airpush an opt-in network?
Yes, every new user that receives Airpush ads has opted-in during the app installation process.
Can users easily opt-out of Airpush ads?
Yes, in addition to simply uninstalling the app, users can opt-out of all of our ad formats:
a) For Push Notification Ads, we offer a permanent opt-out to end-users which blocks this ad format from all apps. Each ad is tagged with the name of the app which delivered it, as well as a link to http://www.airpush.com/optout where the user can opt-out by installing our opt-out application or manually entering their IMEI on the web page. In both cases the IMEI is MD5 hashed so there is absolutely no personally identifiable information, or useful information other than for opt-out purposes.
b) For Icon Ads, users can delete them with 1 click. Users are also clearly made aware when the Icon Ad is first installed as a shortcut, by a "Toast" notification.
c) For SmartWall Ads, users can easily close the window.
Are Airpush Ads compliant with the Google Developer Policy?
Airpush adheres to all guidelines required by the Google Developer Policy and the Play Store.
What smart phone platforms does Airpush work on?
We are focused 100% on Android™, the king of smartphone platforms!
Are Airpush Ads transparent and safe for consumers?
Airpush adheres to the highest standards of transparency and consumer controls in the industry.
As an industry leader, Airpush takes transparency very seriously. Every new user that receives Airpush ads has opted-in during the app installation process. Each Airpush Push Notification Ad is tagged with a permanent opt-out URL, as well as the name of the app which delivered it. In addition a "Toast" notice disclosing the use of both push and icon ads is shown when an app is first launched.
The Airpush campaign approval team carefully monitors advertiser campaigns for compliance both before and after approval. To further enhance consumer safety on our network, we are in the process of integrating technology from the world's leading mobile security vendors.
