New SDKs for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1
Announcing a major SDK update for Windows Phone, we now support XAML applications on Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 platforms on phone, tablet and desktop!

Version 8.1 is the next iteration of Windows & Windows Phone, bringing desktop and phone closer together - and as the global leader in Windows Phone monetization, we're happy to be the first company in the market to support it.

What’s new with Smaato’s Windows SDK:

  • Supports Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1
  • Ad size handling has been improved, ensuring more consistent delivery on Windows Phone devices. The new SDK handles various screen sizes and resolutions more efficiently now
  • Support for full screen interstitials: Take full advantage of these high value adspaces that give agencies and advertisers the opportunity to develop innovative full screen advertisements
  • Support for Windows (Phone) 8.1 XAML apps. If you're building your app with Silverlight for 8.1, please use the 8.0 SDK instead
  • Improved interstitial delivery: the SDK only gives back an “Interstitial Ready” if the ad request succeeded, omitting the risk of interrupting your users with long load times or empty “No Ad”-interstitials
