Getting Started with the Android SDK


Before you begin

  • Suggested Apps is supported on from 2.4.7 SDK version
  • All ad units are supported on Android API 19 and above
  • The integration is done by using Gradle preferences. Manual integration (AAR files) is supported, but we highly recommend using the automated Gradle option!
    Latest version: (released on March 28, 2024)

Step 1: Add AppNext SDK to Your Project

Before updating a new SDK version, it is recommended to clear the Gradle cache and recompile the project.

Add the following to your appโ€™s build.gradle file inside the repositories section:

allprojects {
	repositories {
  	maven { 
      url "" 



If you prefer to integrate manually, follow the Manual Download instructions.

Step 2: Add the AppNext Ad units

Add one or more dependencies for the Ad units you wish to use:

dependencies {
	// For the Interstitial and Rewarded/Fullscreen video ad unit:
  implementation 'com.appnext.sdk:ads:'
  // For the Banners ad unit: 
  implementation 'com.appnext.sdk:banners:' 
  // For the New Native Ads and Suggested Apps ad unit:
  implementation 'com.appnext.sdk:native-ads2:'
  	// For the Admob Adapter 
  implementation 'com.Appnext.sdk.adapters:admob-ads:'
  implementation 'com.Appnext.sdk.adapters:admob-banners:'
    // For the MAX-applovin Adapter 
  implementation 'com.appnext.sdk.adapters:max-ads:'


adding the Interstitial and fullscreen/rewarded will be implemented in the following way:

dependencies {
	// For the Interstitial and Rewarded/Fullscreen video ad unit:
  implementation 'com.appnext.sdk:ads:'
