An App for People Who Like Apple Ads
But some of you are actually sort of interested in looking at ads. And lots of you like things that Apple makes. So: Here’s iAd Gallery, from Steve Jobs and company.
The free app is just what it sounds like–a highlight reel of ads created using Apple’s own in-app advertising system. That is, it’s an ad itself, for iAds.
You could choose to interpret the fact that Apple is rolling this out nearly a year after introducing iAds as an indicator that they haven’t taken off like a rocket. Or you could just take it at face value and acknowledge that lots of advertisers advertise advertising. Google, for one, runs banner ads promising free AdWords credits. I saw one today.
