  • Apple Showcasing Interactive Advertising with iAd Gallery App


    Apple today released iAd Gallery, and iOS app that Apple calls "a celebration of advertising." To call this app ‘ad supported’ would be quite an understatement. iAd Gallery's sole purpose is to showcase Apple's struggling iAd advertising service and act as a creative launching point for potential clients.

    Although the iAd Gallery app is nothing more than a revolving door of ad campaigns, it is still full-featured app, nonetheless. A few of the key features include, regular updates featuring the latest ads from the iAd network, a slick "spinning wheel of iAd banners," a section for your favorite or "Loved" ads, and of course, the usual interactive ad campaigns that are at the heart of iAds to begin with.

    Apple describes iAd Gallery as having "Great ads. On-demand. In your pocket." Given the merits of the app itself, it's not a bad app, just a self-serving one. The app is informative, easy to use and accomplishes what it sets out to do. However, the App Store is hardly lacking when it comes to advertising.

    With advertising just about everywhere these days, most of us spend a great deal of time simply ignoring ads or trying to avoid them altogether. However, if any of the ads do catch your eye, then iAds are a great way to learn more about products and services being advertised. Let's just hope this doesn't become a dedicated category in App Store.

      this is kind of unbelievable...apple has reached a new low as far as product bullshittery goes with this one. ads ******* suck, and that cannot be overstated. only they would try to spin it as being a great product. who the **** "loves" ads enough to bookmark them? why anyone on earth would download this is entirely beyond me. the day people figured out they could plaster the internet with ads was a very sad day indeed

      correction - only apple could try to make something as lame as ads seem cool. like how they ******** every other ****** thing they do into being "better for the customer." don't get me wrong i love apple stuff, i've spent entirely too much money on all things apple, but some of their practices really piss me off

      If I want advertising I will go look for it. It is nice that right now it is its own app. Surely that will change. Apple is a money machine and iads as really just started.

      For those horrified by his statement!! I'll clarify: it's a joke he doesn't like ads. Humor comes in a lot of flavors, I'll take rapeberry please!!!!

      I dont like ads but i think the iAds are pretty neat. I actually opened one and was actually informed and happy to use it. Its like an mini app for the advertisement. Any other ads suck they just open safari and take you to their ****** website. These ads are for big companies and usually ones that i like.

Then the only way to stop it from going back to the ad(when trying to view a screenshot) is to exit out and reload Cydia.
      Been there...done that! I agree!
