UX patterns

The bad UX pattern on Ad Quality identifies potential issues with your users’ ad experience. A creative will be tagged “bad UX pattern” if a high percentage of your users experienced a problematic UX pattern when the creative was shown in your app.

Before you start Make sure you’ve integrated the Ad Quality SDK into your app to enable the bad UX patterns tags. Follow these guidelines to integrate the Ad Quality SDK for iOS, Android, and Unity3D.
