iOS Integration

You can serve native, interstitial and banner ads very quickly and with little effort using Taptica SDK.

Download the Taptica iOS SDK

Download the Taptica SDK. The download contains both the HydraSDK framework and the HydraResources bundle.

Integrate the SDK With Your App

Once you have downloaded the Hydra SDK, follow these steps to integrate the SDK with your app:

  1. . Linked frameworks:
    1. AVfoundation
    2. CoreTelephony
    3. AdSupport
    4. WebKit
  2. . Linking the HydraSDK:
    1. Open the HydraSDK folder and drag the HydraSDK.framework into the frameworks.
  3. Drag the Resources.bundle into the project files.
  4. Select your project target, in the ‘build settings’ section look for ‘other linker flags’ and add -ObjC flag.

You can clone the HydraSDKDemo which demonstrate how to create a banner ad and interstitial ad: [1]

Creating Banner Ad:

#import <HydraSDK/HydraSDK.h>

@interface ViewController () <HAdBannerDelegate> {
    HAdBanner *banner;
   __weak IBOutlet UIView *bannerHolderView;
@implementation ViewController
- (void)viewDidAppear:(BOOL)animated {
    [super viewDidAppear:animated];
    if (!banner) {
        banner = [[HAdBanner alloc] initWithAdSize:(CGSize){320, 50}
        banner.unitAdID = @"115";
        banner.delegate = self;
        banner.rootViewController = self;
        banner.requestParams.shouldOpenInNativeBrowser = YES;
        [banner loadAd];
        [bannerHolderView addSubview:banner];

You can listen to all ads events using the HAdBannerDelegate methods:

/// Called when an ad request loaded an ad. This is a good opportunity to add
this view to the
/// hierarchy if it has not been added yet.
- (void)adViewDidReceiveAd:(HAdBanner *)adView;
/// Called when an ad request failed. Normally this is because no network
connection was available
/// or no ads were available (i.e. no fill).
- (void)adView:(HAdBanner *)adView didFailToReceiveAdWithError:(NSError *)error;
#pragma mark Click-Time Lifecycle Notifications
/// Called just before presenting the user a full screen view, such as a
browser, in response to
/// clicking on an ad. Use this opportunity to stop animations, time sensitive
interactions, etc.
/// Normally the user looks at the ad, dismisses it, and control returns to your
application by
/// calling adViewDidDismissScreen:. However if the user hits the Home button or
clicks on an App
/// Store link your application will end. On iOS 4.0+ the next method called
will be
/// applicationWillResignActive: of your UIViewController
/// (UIApplicationWillResignActiveNotification). Immediately after that
/// is called.
- (void)adViewWillPresentScreen:(HAdBanner *)adView;
/// Called just before dismissing a full screen view.
- (void)adViewWillDismissScreen:(HAdBanner *)adView;
/// Called just after dismissing a full screen view. Use this opportunity to
restart anything you
/// may have stopped as part of adViewWillPresentScreen:.
- (void)adViewDidDismissScreen:(HAdBanner *)adView;
/// Called just before the application will background or terminate because the
user clicked on an
/// ad that will launch another application (such as the App Store). The normal
/// UIApplicationDelegate methods, like applicationDidEnterBackground:, will be
called immediately
- (void)adViewWillLeaveApplication:(HAdBanner *)adView;

Creating Interstitial Ad:

Update the private interface:

@interface ViewController () <HAdBannerDelegate, HInterstitialDelegate>{
    HAdBanner *banner;
    HInterstitial *interstitial;
    __weak IBOutlet UIView *bannerHolderView;
- (IBAction)presentInterstitial:(UIButton *)sender {
    interstitial = [[HInterstitial alloc] init];
    interstitial.unitAdID = @"113";
    interstitial.delegate = self;
    [interstitial loadAd];

Present the Interstitial controller when the ad is ready, you can listen to the interstitialDidReceiveAd: method.

#pragma mark HInterstitialDelegate
- (void)interstitialDidReceiveAd:(HInterstitial *)ad {
    [ad presentFromRootViewController:self];
