super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

}

Upgrade The Android SDK From 2.8.0 To 2.8.1

  • Starting from SDK 2.8.1 Appodeal SDK binds the View ads (Banner/MREC) to the Activity which was passed to the Appodeal.show method.. - Be careful with changing orientation or moving to a new activity, the banner will not be shown automatically, since it was bound to the previous activity.

  • If you want to hide the ad view, you need to call the Appodeal.hide() method with the parameter of the activity to which the ad view was bound.

  • If you want to hide the ad view from all activities and clear the memory, call the Appodeal.destroy() method.

  • New Appodeal.setSharedAdsInstanceAcrossActivities() method for share Banner/MREC views across all activities. By default logic is disabled. (See more: Enable Shared View Ads Instance Across Activities Logic)

  • Method Appodeal.onResume() has been removed. Now you should use Appodeal.show() if required.

  • Now you can call Appodeal.show() method in onBannerLoaded/onMrecLoaded callbacks, but pay attention - if automatic caching is disable we don't track impression intervals and it is at your discretion.

Upgrade The Android SDK From 2.7.3 To 2.8.0

Consent consent = ConsentManager.getInstance(this).getConsent();
Appodeal.initialize(this, "YOUR_APPODEAL_APP_KEY", adTypes, consent);
  • New method updateConsent(Consent consent) to provide the GDPR/CCPA user consent for ad networks in Appodeal SDK anywhere of your application. Appodeal SDK don't keep the GDPR/CCPA user consent between session, that means you should provide consent every time, otherwise, Appodeal SDK uses default or server value.
    // NOTE: getConsent() - should be called after requesting user consent
Consent consent = ConsentManager.getInstance(context).getConsent();
Appodeal.updateConsent(consent);
