If you downloaded the sample project yesterday, you need to re-download the project.
This version fix the "applicationUI.hpp" can't be found problem.
And, don't forget this or your will got an erro of "cannot find -lSmaatoSDKDevice"
The Smaato static library included within the sample is from Smaato SDK for BlackBery 10 v1.1.2. To ensure you are running the latest, please download the latest SDK for Smaato's website and replace the SmaatoSDK folder within the project.
BlackBerry announced Smaato as their new Advertisement service partner on BlackBerry 10.
I've used Smaato in my apps for a long time (since 2013/10, after Jam Asia).
Let's see how to integrated Smaato SDK into your Cascades apps!
1. Read the introduction about Smaato!
2. Download the Smaato sample project from BlackBerry Github
3. Download the Smaato SDK
4. Build the project and see how the AD works!
5. Input your own adSpaceId and publisherId and check the advertisements in your apps!
That's it! Actually it is really an easy way to put Ads in your apps.
You can also add more filters/ restrictions to help they provide much more precisely ads for your apps.
Sometimes due to the fillrate or regional issue, you may not receive ads...
Don't worry, try to change the category of ads you'd like to show.
Enjoy this new AD Service on BlackBerry 10!
As a developer, I think many other developers may think how to teach users to use my application
We provide screenshots of the apps when we upload to any app markets, some devs will also record a video to tell users who to operate.
The most common way is to put a "Guide Page" inside the app, not just "Tips", but a continuous information to let user understand the major features.
There are three kinds of implementations here.
1. Use a scrollview with a super large image
You can simply scroll from left to right, put a button at the last page to close this Guide Page.
The image may be too large, and hard to change / modify parts.
2. Use a scrollview with several images
You can simply scroll from left to right, put a button at the last page to close this Guide Page, can change parts easier than first method.
Still hard to change / modify parts.
3. Use a scrollview with custom containers
Custom containers are much more flexible
I don't know, haha!
Here are the sample from Github
For Cascades 10.1 /10.2 SDK
For Cascades 10.3 SDK
In AppGuidePageDesignUnit project, I rewrite the project with design unit to support even Q30 (Passport), not just pixel related.
If you also want to learn use design unit, you can also check this project :D
If you have any problem, just send me a mail!
Hope you will enjoy the sample!
