    We've received word that Apple has begun to deploy iAd availability on a worldwide basis, with developers reporting that they are beginning to see ad impressions rolling in from locations around the globe. Previously, developers had seen ad requests from those countries go unfilled as Apple limited the program to North America and the United Kingdom.

    The change opens up additional revenue streams for developers and new audiences for advertisers as the company prepares to extend the iAd service to the iPad with the release of iOS 4.2 sometime this month. With Apple having released the golden master version of iOS 4.2 to developers earlier this week, a public release could occur at any time.

    Nice!

    I've been experimenting with ads for "free" Apps. Good to see iAd gaining some traction. I'm really curious about the revenue developers are seeing for more niche Apps. (not BBC or New York Times, but smaller indie type apps.)

    Wonder if iads look different on the iPad

    I will not buy one product with advertising in it. I'd rather pay more for the app.

    Bigger :D But yah, I wouldn't be surprised if iAds could be "universal" as well so they would appear differently on iPads, and ads that are not might have the same "full screen" feature that apps designed for the iPhone/iPod Touch do.

    Also: iThink iLove iAds. i:D

    Is fine, I will continue to only have WiFi turned on when I am actually intending to use the internet. Makes for a very iAd-free experience ...

    Am I wrong, but I thought only the free apps would have iAds in them. The paid for apps shouldn't have any ads? Or did you word your post wrong?

    Based on recent events, I predict an iOS 4.2 release by this Friday; Tuesday the latest. :apple:

    (I'm being extremely optimist). :D

    Well, you're both right. He wont buy any apps with iAds in them, because they don't exist.

    Best news ever

    Thank god!

    I get 48k requests per week on iAds, but only 15k of them are USA.
    That means I lose over 68% of potential ad impressions.

    Checking today, I have indeed noticed fill rates in foreign countries.

    Seriously the best news for me. Admob pays nothing compared to iAds.

    You should put links to your apps, or at least the names in your signature! :)

    Kinda funny.

    Reminds me of a few people that post here.

    "I turn flash off, Steve was right, I hate ads on screen, flash deserves to die"

    Welcome to Apple iAds

    :D

    Many people still hate ads, and also iAds, that part hasn't changed. The thing that has changed is the quality of those ads. iAds ARE better quality (when they're not advertising an app in the app store) than most other ads out there.

    Is this a correct statement?

    I was under the impression that apps with both a free version and a paid version typically will have ads in the free version. But, I didn't think there was anything stopping a developer from actually having a paid app display iAds.

    Of course, I'd be a little annoyed if a paid-for app had iAds, but there isn't anything to stop a developer, is there?
