iOS SDK Integration

Integrating the SDK

The easiest way to integrate the SDK to your iOS project is to use CocoaPods.

Step 1: Simply open your project's Podfile and add a new source to the top:

source 'https://github.com/empowernet/specs.git'

Step 2: Add the following line to your app's target block:

pod 'EmpowerMobileAds', '~> 4.2.0'

Step 3: Run the following command from the command line to install the dependencies:

pod install --repo-update

If you're new to CocoaPods, please refer to their official documentation for more information on getting started with it.

Update your Info.plist

Declare that your app is an AdManager app by adding a key named GADIsAdManagerApp with the boolean value YES to your app's Info.plist file.

You may also make this change manually by adding the following lines to Info.plist:

<key>GADIsAdManagerApp</key>
<true/>

Build Settings

Go to your project target's Build Settings and set Enable Bitcode value to No.

Please also follow the following steps below as well, if your project is written in Objective-C:

  • Set Defines Module value to Yes.
  • Set Always Embed Swift Standard Libraries value to Yes.
  • Set Install Objective-C Compatibility Header value to Yes.

Importing the SDK

In order to be able to use the Empower Mobile Ads SDK, you must import it where necessary.

Projects using Swift

Please add the following line to the files where you refer to the classes provided by the Empower Mobile Ads SDK:

import EmpowerMobileAds

Projects using Objective-C

Since Empower Mobile Ads SDK is written in Swift, you need to create a Bridging-Header.h file.

You may do so by creating an empty Swift file and allowing the Xcode to create one for you, by simply accepting the prompt.

After the bridging header is created, you may use the line below to import the SDK in your .m and .h files.

@import EmpowerMobileAds;

Integrating Mediation Networks

Download Empower Mobile Ads Mediation Bundle for supported mediation frameworks and their corresponding mediation adapters. Then, add these frameworks to Frameworks, Libraries and Embedded Content under your app's target.
