Ask HN: What kind of ad rates can I expect on mobile game apps?

What kind of fill rates and CPM rates can I expect with mobile apps on ios? I'm particularly interested in your experience with full-screen video ads or interstitials.


Don't have game app data, but I have a lifestyle app that serves banners:

AdMob (iOS) - .09 eCPM | 99.87% Fill Rate AdMob (Android) - .54 eCPM | 99.95% Fill Rate

iAd (iOS) - .56 eCPM | 84.41% Fill Rate

I won't share impressions, but iAD is by far the most profitable stream for me after sales and in-app purchase.

Thanks, this is actually very helpful. Would you mind sharing the name of your app?

Sure, it's called Zazen Suite/Zazen Lite. I only serve ads on the free version, and while I haven't done a lot of experimenting with Android yet, iOS makes so much more that it's not a contest.
