Provides support for the Google AdMob SDK (https://www.google.com/admob/) for mobile advertising. This module is largely based of the react-native-admob (https://github.com/sbugert/react-native-admob) module, as the documentation and questions surrounding that module may prove helpful. A simple example implementing AdMob SDK can be found at https://github.com/deadcoder0904/expo-google-admob.
Installation in managed Expo projects
Installation in bare React Native projects
For bare React Native projects, you must ensure that you have installed and configured the
react-native-unimodules package before continuing.
Add the package to your npm dependencies
expo install expo-ads-admob
Configure for iOS
npx pod-install after installing the npm package.
In your app's
Info.plist file, add a
GADApplicationIdentifier key with a string value of your AdMob app ID, as shown in Google's Mobile Ads SDK iOS docs.
Configure for Android
Ensure that there is a
meta-data element inside the
application node inside
AndroidManifest.xml file (located typically under
"com.google.android.gms.ads.APPLICATION_ID" and a value of your AdMob App ID. Google's Mobile Ads SDK documentation shows precisely how to do this here. In the end your
AndroidManifest.xml should look more or less like this:
<manifest> <application> ... <!-- Ensure that tag with this name and proper value is inside application --> <meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.ads.APPLICATION_ID" android:value="ca-app-pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx~yyyyyyyyyy"/> <!-- App ID --> <!-- You can find your App ID in the AdMob UI --> ... </application> </manifest>
This package automatically adds the
INTERNET permission. It's required to interact with Google's service.
<manifest> <!-- Added permissions --> <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" /> </manifest>
