Testing your Unity Integration

Testing the Integration

Before you publish your app with Start.io ( Formerly StartApp), we strongly recommend that you test your integration to ensure it is operating properly.

Turn on Test Mode by adding the following:

AdSdk.Instance.SetTestAdsEnabled(true);

Now you are all set to get test ads.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
  • You MUST turn off the test mode by removing the code above before going live or else your app will fail to monetize.
