🎉 Admob now Available on Thunkable ✕ 2019-03-12



We’re very pleased to announce the release of one of our most highly-anticipated components - AdMob!
The launch of this new service gives you three new components to choose from; banners, interstitials and rewarded videos. Please note, that for this initial release, you will have to submit your app for manual review in order to use any of the new AdMob components in your app.

:bookmark: Release Notes

Take a look at our release notes for a more detailed description of everything that’s included in this release.

:robot: Thunkable Live for Android

You’ll need v. 62 of the Live Companion app, head over to the Play Store to make sure you’re up-to-date.

:apple: Thunkable Live for iOS

We’re working hard to update Thunkable Live for iOS too, but right now live testing is only available for Android. For now, if you want to see what ads look like on iOS you’ll need to download and install your app directly to your device.

:rocket: AdMob Banner

The Banner Ad is the simplest ad to use. Just drag-and-drop into your design and you’re done. You can have up to one banner ad per screen in your app.

:rocket: AdMob Interstitial

You can use up to one Interstitial Ad ad per app, and it should only be triggered after an appropriate event has occurred in your app.

:rocket: AdMob Rewarded Video

Typically you can show a Rewarded Video to your user after they have completed some difficult or challenging aspect of your app. You can use one rewarded video ad per app.

3 posts were split to a new topic: Does Thunkable X have a pedometer sensor?


I hope this works properly otherwise this forum will be inundated with “Why Admob not work?” topics again.


If you enter live test inside ios and there is an ad project, you can not see anything (in ios) (see only white screen).


Thank you very much for your work. I waited a long time to add ads to my app😀


Hi @TOMER2526, glad you like it.

That’s correct, we’ll post an update as soon as the new iOS Live Testing app is available.


Hi Dean, thanks for your comment! what does work properly mean in the case of Admob? Could you please elaborate more? Your feedback is valuable to us especially at the early stage of Admob component development on the cross-platform. Thanks.


You CAN’T - because Thunkable X is lacking the most essential features. Instead you just add advertisement and other useless components that would make sense to introduce once the basics are there but they ARE NOT!

To me Thunkable is slowly but steady dying… Can’t wait until AppInventor release their iOS version. At least you can be assured they know what they are doing and they will only release it once all the essentials are completed. Thunkable X launched more than a year ago and is now a paid service but still it is worse than most other services are in an early Alpha stage… I see no progress in improvement of the platform - just the addition of commercial components…

If your new goal is to clutter the App-Store with crappy useless apps containing tons of ads then you might head the right way but if you want people to create GOOD apps then you’re heading in a totally wrong direction because it is not possible to create anything meaningful, impressive and helpful with X yet… Apple is quite likely going to disapprove apps built with Thunkable soon if you continue like that and they are right because the App-Store does not need useless crappy apps with no value but tons of ads in them…

I waited for months that Thunkable might finally introduce at least some of the most essential and basic components but nothing happened and now I really don’t want to continue using Thunkable anymore.

Really sad but I feel there is absolutely no progress in the right places… Also you do not care about bugs and reports and do not reply even after one sent you the files as requested - that does only make that feeling worse.

So sadly I say bye Thunkable!
