i wouldn't worry. Not all the test ads have the test ad label. I have never been blocked by Google for showing real ads. Just don't click on them and you should be fine.

Hi

 

i'm a bit worried while I'm testing my game as the adds do not show 'Test Ad' when on the IPAD.

it does on an Android tablet though. (see attached)

I have set

admob.init( adListener, { appId=appID , testMode=true} )

in main.lua

 

The reason i'm worried is the big Red comment in the Corona doco

http://docs.coronalabs.com/plugin/admob/init.html

 

You should always use test ads during development (testMode = true). If you do not, Google may suspend your AdMob account if they detect that live ads have been interacted with during development.

 

so .. should i be worried ? is that a bug or a feature ?

 

ps: ironically the ad on Android says "You can overcome anxiety" .. yeah ..  by deploying your app on Android !! :-)
