We’re changing our framework policy starting from March, 2018

At Appodeal, we strive continuously to improve our intelligent ad mediation to be the best in the market for publishers. A major part of that goal is to ensure our SDK performance is top-notch. Therefore, we will be concentrating our external plugins support on only two frameworks.

By stopping developing the other external plugins below used by fewer than 10% of our publishers, our development team will be able to dedicate more time and focus in enhancing the performance of the Unity 3D and Corona plugins.

Starting from March 1, 2018, we will cease supporting any other frameworks except for Unity 3D and Corona, which when combined with iOS and Android native frameworks generate more than 90% of Appodeal impressions.

What does it mean for those who work with other plugins, except for Corona and Unity?

❗️ Don’t worry: you’ll still be able to use the current version of plugins and extensions to monetize with Appodeal. In case you have Appodeal integrated into your application, it will work fine even after March 1, 2018.

❗️ However, all upcoming plugin versions will not include support and updates for any other ones except for Corona and Unity 3D.

❗️ The last version of SDK that includes all frameworks is SDK 2.1.4. We will provide the most important and urgent updates for all frameworks up to version 2.2.0.

❗️ Our support team will be answering all questions and resolving issues on all frameworks until March 1, 2018. After that date, the support team will cover only Unity 3D and Corona inquiries.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will be happy to help you to adapt.

Here’s a list of plugins that will be ceased in development and supporting:

🔺 AIR Native Extension v.3.0.4 (incl. Android 2.1.4, iOS 2.1.4)

🔺 Basic4Android v.2.1.4 (incl. Android 2.1.4)

    I was going to start using it and gave up.

      Please, pay attention that you can still monetize with Appodeal using SDK 2.1.4.

  • Palle Simonsen

    I really think you should reconsider the cordova decision given the uptake of ionic 🙂

    • Julia Shmyrova

      We’ll keep an eye on it, thanks 🙂

    • Rodrigo Graça

      Totally agreed! How can they ignore cordova/ionic ?

  • Paweł Gaczyński

    Please reconsider Cocos2d-x support. “25% of iPhone games are made using Cocos2d-x” – according to: https://www.slant.co/options/1054/~cocos2d-x-and-cocos2d-family-review

    Ahhhh ( Long awaiting by Defold community Appodeal support appear only 2 month ago and now you just drop it ( Please continue Defold Engine support … I dont like used FGL Enhance or something else. Yeah i see “you can still monetize with Appodeal using SDK 2.1.4” but how quick this api version breaked? I love use stable tools+apis.

    Wow this really sucks to hear. I am surprised more people are using Corona than Game Maker: Studio. I hope this isn’t a permanent change and development will continue on other frameworks when development resources are more abundant.

  • While some see this as bad news, although it was nice to see support for lots of frameworks, the Unity3D plugin has always been months behind the latest Android sdk version. Now that more resources will be devoted to it, maybe it will finally stay on par with the current android sdk versions (and the beta too would be nice).

    • That said, it would be nice to see the number drop from 10% to 5%, so if less than 5% of Appodeal users are using that sdk it goes away, instead of 10%. Or Open-Source some of the APIs so the community can maintain 3rd-party appodeal sdks for unsupported frameworks.

    Your data says Unity and Corona make up 90% currently, With the uptake of RN & Ionic, I think this is a little premature. I was considering using AppoDeal but probably wont now.
