This Guideline will instruct you step-by-step on how to activate AppLovin as an Ad Network on the AdTiming Mediation platform.

Before You Start

Make sure you have correctly integrated AdTiming  Banner, Rewarded Video, Interstitial Ads in your application.

Important! The ADAPTERS for ad networks are modularized, which means that you need to download Not Only the SDK of mediation networks  you choose to work with But Also the adapters for those ad networks. Be sure to follow this Guide to mediation AppLovin's Ads.


Step 1. Create an AppLovin Account

  1. Create an AppLovin account here.
  2. Login here when your account has been verified.

Step 2. Retrieve Your AppLovin SDK Key

AppLovin automatically creates an application in your account after the first Ad Request is made with their SDK in your app, so you don’t need to specifically create one on their Admin site. The App name in your account will be the same as the app name defined in your AdTiming.config file (Android) and/or Plist file (iOS).

Step 3. Obtain AppLovin Report Key & SDK Key

Insert below two pieces of data from the AppLovin account into your AdTiming Ad Network Setup in order for AppLovin to work correctly in connection with AdTiming.

  • Report Key: This is a unique identifier for your AppLovin account, which allows your AdTiming Mediation Platform to import performance data from your AppLovin account to use in reporting and optimization.
  • SDK Key: This is a unique identifier for your AppLovin account, which is used by the AdTiming Mediation SDK to init the AppLovin Adapter for your apps.

 Once you obtain this information, you should configure the AppLovin parameters in your AdTiming Account. Go to the 'Account' tab and select 'Keys' from the left side menu.


Step 4. Configure AppLovin's Parameters into AdTiming Account

1. Once you have both of these parameters, log in to your AdTiming account and go to Placement ->Edit your placement  

2. Click on Instances-> Add Instance. Select AppLovin from the list of Available Ad Networks, click 'New Account'


3. Complete the following parameters below,and click 'Save'.


Step 5. Configure Rewarded Video in Applovin's Admin

Once the AppLovin Adapter has been added to your build, you need to enable the Rewarded Video functionality in the AppLovin Admin.

 1. Go to 'Manage Apps' and select the specific app you want to configure

 2. Scroll down to the 'Rewarded Video' section and set the following options

  • Frequency Capping – Do not frequency cap Rewarded Videos
  • Virtual Currency Details – The AdTiming Mediation Adapter will set this, so you can leave the default values
  • Callback Options – Client-side callbacks only


3. Click on 'Save'

Step 6. Add the AppLovin SDK&Adapter to Your Build


1.  Add the AppLovin SDK

  • Add the following into your application-level build.gradle file.
dependencies {
    implementation 'com.applovin:applovin-sdk:9.12.7'

2. Add the AppLovin Adapter

    AdTiming supports both Gradle dependencies and Manual download mechanisms.

       Gradle dependencies

  • Add the following in your project-level build.gradle file.

   repositories {
        maven {
            url ""

implementation 'com.adtiming.adapters:applovin:3.2.0@aar' 

       Manual download

  • Download the AppLovin Adapter from here.
  • Add the AppLovin Adapter to Your Project
    Move the AppLovinAdapter-x.x.x.aar to the libs folder in your Android Project.
  • Make sure you add the following to your Gradle build file under the dependencies section:
implementation (name:'AppLovinAdapter-3.3.0', ext:'aar') 

3. For Proguard Users Only
If you are using ProGuard with the AppLovin adapter, you must add the following code to your ProGuard configuration (Android Studio: or Eclipse: proguard-project.txt):

-keep class com.applovin.** { *;}

2. Add the AppLovin frameworks to your Project

Update Info.plist
