Getting Started

This document details the process of integrating YouAppi MoPub Adapter with your Android app.

If you have any question you can email us at

The basic steps of integration are:

  • Add our dependencies to your project.
  • Add YouAppi to your MoPub console.
  • Load an ad.
  • Show an ad.


Minimum API level: 16, Android 4.1


  • Add the following repository to your project build.gradle:
repositories {
maven { url '' }
maven { url "" }
  • Add the following dependency to your module build.gradle:
dependencies {
    implementation 'com.youappi.sdk:youappi-sdk-android-mopub-moat:4.3.8+0_2_1'
   implementation('com.mopub:mopub-sdk:5.1.0@aar') {
        transitive = true


If you use proguard in your application you should add these entries to your proguard file:

-keep class com.youappi.sdk.mediation.mopub.YouAPPiInterstitialAd{*;}
-keep class com.youappi.sdk.mediation.mopub.YouAPPiInterstitialVideo{*;}
-keep class com.youappi.sdk.mediation.mopub.YouAPPiRewardedVideo{*;}

Create YouAppi custom network

  • On MoPub platform on Networks tab, add a new custom network for YouAppi:
  • On the popup that opens choose to add a Custom Native Network.

    • Interstitial Video: com.youappi.sdk.mediation.mopub.YouAppiInterstitialVideo
    • Interstitial Ad: com.youappi.sdk.mediation.mopub.YouAppiInterstitialAd

    • accessToken – the access token of the partner received from YouAppi.
    • adUnitId – an arbitrary id chosen the by app developer to identify the ad unit id. It should be by only numbers, letters and underscores.
  • Here is an example of how the custom event class data should look like:
      "accessToken": "821cfa77-3127-42b5-9e6b-0afcecf77c67",
      "adUnitId": "testRewardedVideoAdUnitId"

MoPub.initializeSdk(this, sdkConfiguration, this);
MoPubRewardedVideos.loadRewardedVideo("<Replace with MoPub Rewarded Video Ad Unit ID>");


MoPubRewardedVideos.showRewardedVideo("<Replace with MoPub Rewarded Video Ad Unit ID>");

Interstitial Video


MoPubInterstitial moPubInterstitialVideo = new MoPubInterstitial(this, "<Replace with MoPub Interstitial Video Ad Unit ID>");


Interstitial Ad


MoPubInterstitial moPubInterstitialAd = new MoPubInterstitial(this, "<Replace with MoPub Interstitial Ad Unit ID>");


Load and Show best practices

  • Make sure to init the SDK as soon as the app starts. It might take few seconds to complete the init process.
  • Make sure to load the ad about 30 seconds before you want to show it since it takes time for the ad and assets to be prepared.
  • Make sure to show an ad as close as possible to its load, in order to have a better fill rate and relevant ads.
  • Make sure not to wait too long before showing an ad, since the ad will be expired 5 hours after being called for. In other words, “show” must be performed no more than 5 hours after the “load”.
  • Use ad event listeners in order to be notified when an ad is ready to be shown.
  • Use ad event listeners to handle load and show.
  • Loading an ad too many times without showing it might cause YouAppi servers to block the SDK from requests.
