Here’s a question. What can you do in 20 minutes?

Die a couple of times playing the Horde mode in Gears of War? Watch an episode of Two and a Half Men? Make and drink a pot of tea? Read? Go for a walk? Write a postcard to a friend? Take a shower? Eat some cake? Or just sit around doing nothing?

Instead, what if you can actually be ready to make $$$ in under 20 minutes?

Over six months ago, we asked ourselves a question - If we had to start with a clean slate, how could we make it super-simple for a developer to monetize with InMobi?

Six months (and several beers) later…..

Introducing InMobi’s brand new monetization platform and a spanking new SDK 500!

The platform and the SDK were written from ground-up and we are delighted with the outcome. We can’t wait for you to try it out! We’ve now made it easier-than-ever for developers to work with InMobi. A simple three-step process is all it takes - and guess what? It will not take you more than 20 minutes!

So what’s new?

  1. Simplified Onboarding: As a part of your onboarding with InMobi, we have introduced a new app registration workflow. If your app is already live on the iOS or Google Play store, we have simplified the app approval and verification flow by completely automating it. Simply add your app’s URL, select your ad type/placement, integrate using our integration wizard and you’re done! All this takes less than 20 minutes!To check it out, sign in to your InMobi account and click on the “Add an App” button.
  2. Introducing Placements and Ad Controls: Are you integrating video ads? Or do you prefer only rewarded video ads? With placements, you now have control to select the ad format of your choice and tag it for superior monetization, based on the ad unit’s location and context in the app. For example, at app launch, between levels, etc.
  3. Re-architectured To Have The Lowest Ever Footprint: Over the last six months, our technical teams have been hard at work to rewrite InMobi’s SDK. The re-architectured, placement-enabled SDK 500 brings several under-the-hood changes that improves the efficiency of the internal APIs, simplifies integration and optimizes ad caching making it the most technically advanced SDK ever! In addition, the new SDK decreases footprint in the published app by 30%! And of course, the new iOS version of the SDK is iOS 9 compliant (App Transport Security, Bitcoding-enabled and the works).

You will hear a lot more from us in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! In the meanwhile, Sign-in to InMobi and get started!
