I want to add my experience from the developer's point of view. I have an
Android app with about 1000 installations (and 100 active users). This app
has ads as well as an option to disable them for a $2 donation.

Nobody ever activated this option. So most probably I won't be able to get
any revenue from the app without ads.

>> I've progressed with implementing an open source wrapper for Vserv
>> RESTful advertisement API in QML. Quote from API description:
>>
>> Vserv provides a simple HTTP based API to publishers/developers and other
>> ad networks, etc. to fetch ads for mobile sites or mobile applications. The
>> mobile device / server makes a HTTP request to Vserv Marketplace server
>> with the required parameters and in response receives the ad in JSON
>> format. This single API integration gives you the flexibility to fetch
>> banner/ full screen / rich media ads.
>>
>> Available implementation is in pre-beta phase - quite majority of
>> functionality works but there is still room for improvement.
>>
>> Since I'm not so experienced in this area of sw development - and
>> especially newbie in Sailfish native development - *I would like to ask
>> some help from the community in finishing it*.
>>
>> It would be a general purpose QML wrapper around the API with necessary
>> tailoring is needed for Sailfish - e.g. Webkit vs. WebView, etc. Maybe
>> separate git branches are needed for different implementation(?) - I'm open
>> for any reasonable proposal.
>>
>> Is there anybody willing to join? Reviewing, commenting - and of course,
>> coding is more than welcome. [This is my first open source project, so
>> comment from this aspect is welcome, too.]
>>
>> API descrption is here
