I have been researching this issue for a project I am working on. It appears that several ad providers use a mobile web interface in addition to the android and iOS SDKs. I know that both Mopub and MobFox do this.

Considering that we might produce an application that is deployed to 5 different platforms, it sure makes sense to have an ad delivery mechanism that would across all platforms rather than having to customize for each.

Do we have to use a separate web page on a server, though? I mostly deliver HTML content, including images, through the browser widget without using a page on a server. I just auto generate a self-contained html document and set the htmltext of the widget to that.
The key to a happy life is to practice love for all things.

Having to have a page hosted somewhere will really depend on the ad network requirements, but you could probably can slap their code in to your generated HTML page and do what you're currently doing, I'm going to assume that their code will just make what network calls it needs to make to load up their ads.. You may also want to check if there is a network connection before embedding their code.. Personally my iPod Touch is pretty much always in airplane mode, whereas my iPod is always on wifi..

Hi, the smaato option worked well from a technical standpoint.

Revenue...well that wasn't so good, but my app was targeted at a very small subset of users, so its difficult for me to judge the value for an app with a large audience.
