    Hi everyone,

    About a month ago, I got my first iAd-enabled app on the app store, since I wanted to see if iAds are more profitable than paid apps. When I set up iAd network, it asked me if my target audience is below 17 or above 17. My app is meant for use by anyone 1 to 100, so I just chose below 17 because I wanted to make sure I didn't get ads not appropriate for children or anything like that. Over the next month, I watched the performance of iAds and the fill rate was abysmally low. It didn't take much searching to figure out that the below 17 choice was a mistake. I contacted Apple, and they said:

    Luckily, I have version 1.1 on hand and ready to submit. So how to change the target audience to above 17? I created 1.1 in iTC, but it still won't let me change the settings. The status is "Waiting For Upload". Many thanks!

    Apple need to make iAd so you just drag on drop the Ad onto your xib and select various settings.

    Currently you have to put a various code in. I've reached a hiatus where I cannot figure out how to add iAd to my app.

    Although I don't need anyone to point out "how I should study hard how to code", but one of the great things about the iPhone SDK is it's easy to make an app without knowing how to code... (I made mine following some tutorials but was learning a bit as I went along and was able to diagnose my own errors), no doubt probably a bad thing among developers who think that type of thing is making a mockery of their profession.

    Although I myself like coding, I do see your point Mitch1984. I've created a simple doc for my friends on doing it, and I put it below for you and anybody else who wants it. Also, I emailed Apple about my original question, they suggested I report it as a bug to the bug reporter, which I did. Hopefully they do something!
