Add the Google ads dependency

Learn how to support monetization with the OpenWeb iOS SDK by adding the Google Mobile Ads SDK.

When the Google Mobile Ads SDK is integrated into your app, this sets the foundation for you to display ads and to earn revenue.

Since conflicts can occur when the Google Mobile Ads SDK is a dependency of both the host app and the OpenWeb iOS SDK, Google-Mobile-Ads-SDK is not included as a direct dependency of the OpenWeb iOS SDK.



Add and initiate the dependency

Use the following steps to support monetization with the OpenWeb iOS SDK:

  1. In a text editor, open Podfile.
  2. Addpod 'Google-Mobile-Ads-SDK', '8.0'.
target 'OpenWeb-SDK-iOS-Demo' do
  # Use one of those options
  use_frameworks!
  # use_frameworks! :linkage => :static

  # Pods for OpenWeb-SDK-iOS-Demo
  pod 'SpotIMCore'
  pod 'Google-Mobile-Ads-SDK', '8.0'
end

  1. In Terminal at the terminal prompt of your project directory, execute pod install to install the dependency.

  2. In the app Info.plist, add a GADApplicationIdentifier key and a SKAdNetworkItems key:

    • Set the string value of the GADApplicationIdentifier key to your Ad Manager app ID.
    • Set the string value of the SKAdNetworkItems key tocstr6suwn9.skadnetwork.
<key>GADApplicationIdentifier</key>
<string>ca-app-pub-***************~**********</string>
<key>SKAdNetworkItems</key>
  <array>
    <dict>
      <key>SKAdNetworkIdentifier</key>
      <string>cstr6suwn9.skadnetwork</string>
    </dict>
  </array>

  1. Add the GoogleAdsProvider.swift file to your project.
import UIKit
import GoogleMobileAds
import SpotImCore

final class GoogleAdsProvider: NSObject, AdsProvider {
    weak var bannerDelegate: AdsProviderBannerDelegate?
    weak var interstitialDelegate: AdsProviderInterstitialDelegate?

    private var banner: GAMBannerView?
    private var interstitial: GAMInterstitialAd?
    private var spotId: String = ""

    override init() {
        super.init()
    }

    func version() -> String { return "1.0" }

    func setSpotId(spotId: String) {
        self.spotId = spotId
    }

    func setupAdsBanner(with adId: String = Configuration.testBannerID, in controller: UIViewController, validSizes: Set<AdSize>) {
        var sizes: [NSValue] = validSizes.map { (size) -> NSValue in
            let gadSize = parseAdSizeToGADAdSize(adSize: size)
            return NSValueFromGADAdSize(gadSize)
        }

        if sizes.isEmpty {
            let defaultSize = parseAdSizeToGADAdSize(adSize: .small)
            sizes.append(NSValueFromGADAdSize(defaultSize))
        }

        banner = GAMBannerView()
        banner?.validAdSizes = sizes
        banner?.adUnitID = adId
        banner?.delegate = self
        banner?.rootViewController = controller
        let req = GAMRequest()
        req.customTargeting = ["bannerConvSdkSpotId":spotId]
        banner?.load(req)
    }

    func setupInterstitial(with adId: String = Configuration.testInterstitialID) {
        let req = GAMRequest()
        req.customTargeting = ["interConvSdkSpotId":spotId]

        GAMInterstitialAd.load(withAdManagerAdUnitID: adId, request: req) { ad, error in
            if let error = error {
                self.interstitialDelegate?.interstitialFailedToLoad(error: error)
                return
            }
            self.interstitial = ad
            self.interstitial?.fullScreenContentDelegate = self
            self.interstitialDelegate?.interstitialLoaded()
        }
    }

    func showInterstitial(in controller: UIViewController) -> Bool {
        guard let interstitial = interstitial else { return false }

        interstitial.present(fromRootViewController: controller)

        return true
    }

    private func parseAdSizeToGADAdSize(adSize: AdSize) -> GADAdSize {
        switch adSize {
        case .small:
            return kGADAdSizeBanner
        case .medium:
            return kGADAdSizeLargeBanner
        case .large:
            return kGADAdSizeMediumRectangle
        }
    }

    @objc public class func setSpotImSDKWithProvider() {
        SpotIm.setGoogleAdsProvider(googleAdsProvider: GoogleAdsProvider())
    }
}

extension GoogleAdsProvider: GADFullScreenContentDelegate {
    func adDidPresentFullScreenContent(_ ad: GADFullScreenPresentingAd) {
        interstitialDelegate?.interstitialWillBeShown()
    }

    func ad(_ ad: GADFullScreenPresentingAd, didFailToPresentFullScreenContentWithError error: Error) {
        interstitialDelegate?.interstitialDidDismiss()
    }

    func adDidDismissFullScreenContent(_ ad: GADFullScreenPresentingAd) {
        interstitialDelegate?.interstitialDidDismiss()
    }
}

extension GoogleAdsProvider: GADBannerViewDelegate {

    func bannerViewDidReceiveAd(_ bannerView: GADBannerView) {
        bannerDelegate?.bannerLoaded(bannerView: bannerView, adBannerSize: bannerView.adSize.size, adUnitID: bannerView.adUnitID ?? "")
    }

    func bannerView(_ bannerView: GADBannerView, didFailToReceiveAdWithError error: Error) {
        bannerDelegate?.bannerFailedToLoad(error: error)
    }
}

private extension GoogleAdsProvider {

    private enum Configuration {
        static let testInterstitialID: String = "/6499/example/interstitial"
        static let testBannerID: String = "/6499/example/banner"
    }
}

  1. Immediately after SpotIm.initialize(spotId: spotId), call setGoogleAdsProvider to set the Google ads provider to the SpotIm class.
SpotIm.setGoogleAdsProvider(googleAdsProvider: GoogleAdsProvider())
