And Burstly has a characteristic that makes it gain some notoriety: the platform itself has also been devised with developers of iPad apps in mind.
The way the network works right now, Burstly takes a ten percent cut on the actual earnings. The company claims that it is not really competing with any of the already-established networks, but rather giving developers a ready chance to handpick what will be shown and to whom within the advertising types that are already commonplace. The goal is to let developers have fuller control over their inventories. This site will let you see which network is bringing in the more money, and focus your efforts on that one alone.
And if you are developing apps for the iPad you could easily run video ads of any size on the new tablet that has been hitting headlines like crazy since yesterday. A platform like this one will effectively let you develop your own in-house ads, and free yourself from this or that network. If you think the idea has potential, simply get a copy of the company’s SDK and learn more about displaying video interstitial ads in your forthcoming iPad ads.
