XCode: All versions | Appodeal SDK: All versions


If the app crashes on startup, check the logs from your device. Connect a device with the app installed, open the iOS console, run the app and check logs. For more information about the console please visit Debugging with Xcode.

The following crash happens if AdMob APP Id has not been specified in info.plist file, which is required for AdMob and A4G networks. Appodeal SDK contains these adapters by default.

If you are planning to use AdMob and A4G add GADApplicationIdentifier(AdMob app ID) to your info.plist

You may find the AdMob app id in your personal account on the AdMob page:

Use the key GADApplicationIdentifier with the value being your AdMob app ID and add it to your info.plist.

<key>GADApplicationIdentifier</key> 
<string>YOUR_ADMOB_APP_ID</string>
