I am writing an ad supported app which runs a very network intensive thread as soon as it is run. As this is sometimes slowing or stopping receiving the ad from the server I would like to know how I can determine if the ad has been downloaded so I can then start the thread afterwards.
I have already fiddled around with using AdListener from the AdMob Library but am unable to get it to work.
I'm sure this is simple to do but I am very new to Android and programming altogether meaning small things are huge obstacles to me.
If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
