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.

When I first saw this I was confused as why but not a horrible idea to see all the unique ads companies have created.

Westerman you just used but and rape in the same sentence!!!
Who in their right minds willingly looks @ ads? Apple must be onto something here..... They're allowing people to view ads in one central place and people for some reason want to look at them????
Steve jobs is totally in awe! Steve="polish my nuts and serve me a milkshake woz, they're actually willingly looking at ads, what a bunch of mooks!"

Hmm and Scion was giving a free theme in Cydia and APPLE asked to remove, Apple scared of competition?

Let's not forget to mention the fact that any revenue generated from ads clicked on within this app fully go to apple, not a third party developer. This is pretty ingenious actually.

AusFags: Can't download it from our AppStore
I'm not a fan of Ads Either, but Damn, I actually want to see this in action.
This is Apple at it's best, making something everyone hates into something people will go out of there way to download.
It's because of their elegance, and execution. Kudos to Apple.
