The Banner Ads component places a short, wide banner image at the bottom of the main menu. The ad changes every few seconds, so that if you create multiple ads, each ad displays in turn.
These ads can serve a number of purposes: a benefit for sponsors, a way to generate revenue, or a way to promote services related to the event.
If you are not interested in placing advertisements in your app, you can still use the banner ad component to place an image (and associated link) at the bottom of the main menu for other purposes, such as linking to the event website.
Banner Ads does not require any other component.
What happens in the app
Banner ads appear at the bottom of the main menu. In a 9 icon navigation menu, the banner ad is displayed beneath the navigation arrows and is unaffected by swiping screens. In a menu, the banner ad is displayed at the bottom of the menu window and is unaffected by menu scrolling.
If the event includes more than one banner ad, the app rotates through them by fading to a new ad every few seconds. The number of seconds an ad displays is configured separately for each ad.
When a user touches a banner ad, the in-app browser opens the website associated with that ad.
