MoPub's mediation with the networks that I believe are going to perform well in my case. So I'm planning this setup:
- Facebook Audience Network (Test)
- MobileCore (I have good relation with their staff and excellent account manager)
- Chartboost (Test)
- iAd (Because is strong in USA and I'm getting ads + IAPs in the same payment from iTunes)
- AdMob (As backfill + self cross-promotion)
And you could include StartApp among those.
MoPub is a great mediation tool, and you can, and MUST, create your own configurations (segments) to make it work properly, so you need to spend time analyzing how your app and the different ad networks are performing in the different countries, etc.
Appodeal increased x2 (almost x3) the money being earned when using ONLY iAd. So in my case with iOS, it wasn't really a big improvement, even less when you are fighting against 40% of fill rate from iAd.
Guys, please open another thread for off-topic discussions

Appodeal Publisher Review
What is going on Pavel ? Are you kidding me ? I have over 500000 active users !
I was on other networks before and there is nothing wrong with my app !
I also had 7900 dollar !!! which i had in my account !
I requested the payout for this money some mintues ago - some minutes after requesting the payout i received the above mail !
I got same thing few minutes ago. I already received some payments from them and now im banned for some reason i had there over 2k. This is getting out of control.
Sorry @itsnotme, you are right
As @Wao said, this is getting out of control. I'm really sorry for you guys, hope it's nothing.
Don't know if someone else is with me about this, but I have the feeling that Appodeal is hiding some important facts from their recently issue with AdMob, and it could be related to some pending payments from AdMob being frozen? We are talking about some serious thousands of dollars per day.
Only time will tell.
