Adapter Integration

Latest version: (released on February 20, 2024)

Using Gradle

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

Step 1: Define the root level gradle of the project

You need to paste it into the project gradle (Project integration App)

allprojects {
  repositories {
  maven { url "" }

Step 2: Define in the module build.gradle

You need to paste to the module gradle (Module App)

You're done! Go ahead and choose an ad unit to integrate with the adapter!

dependencies {
  implementation 'com.appnext.sdk.adapters:admob-ads:' // Mandatory for interstitial and fullscreen/rewarded video ad units
  implementation 'com.appnext.sdk.adapters:admob-banners:' // Mandatory for banners ad unit
  implementation '' // Mandatory

Manual Integration (Not Recommended)

Step 1: Download the ZIP file with the SDK and adapter AAR files

Download the AAR files from here
The ZIP file includes the following AAR files;

  • AppnextAndroidSDKCore.aar - The SDK core
  • AppnextAndroidSDKAds.aar - For the interstitial and fullscreen/rewarded ad units
  • AppnextAndroidSDKBanners.aar - For the banners ad unit
  • AppnextAndroidSDKNativeAds.aar - For the native ads ad unit
  • AppnextAndroidSDKActions.aar - For the actions ad unit
  • AppnextAndroidAdmobAdapterAds.aar - The interstitial and fullscreen/rewarded ad units Admob adapter
  • AppnextAndroidAdmobAdapterBanners.aar - The banners ad unit Admob adapter

Step 2: Add the AAR files to Your Project

Extract the ZIP file and add the relevant AAR files to your "libs" folder in your project;

  • You must add the AppnextAndroidSDKCore.aar file (make sure to add it only once)
  • Add other AAR files according to your relevant ad unit integration
  • Add the relevant Mopub adapter AAR file accordingly
  • All AAR files must be from the same version (download the latest ZIP file to be sure)

Ad the following code to the project's build.gradle

allprojects {
   repositories {
      flatDir {
        dirs 'libs'

Step 3: Add the following code to the module's build.gradle

For example, adding the Ads AAR with the adapter AAR file:

dependencies {
  implementation name:'AppnextAndroidSDKCore.aar', ext:'aar' // Mandatory
  implementation name:'AppnextAndroidSDKAds.aar', ext:'aar'
  implementation name:'AppnextAndroidAdmobAdapterAds.aar', ext:'aar'
  implementation '' // Mandatory

Step 4: ProGuard

Exclude Appnext from your proguard by using the line:

-keep class com.appnext.** { *; }
-dontwarn com.appnext.**

You're done! Go ahead and choose an ad unit to integrate with the adapter!

Example Project

You can download an example project (Android Studio) from here.
