AdaptivePlus iOS SDK


AdaptivePlus is the control center for marketing campaigns in mobile applications.


  • iOS 11.0 or later
  • Xcode 12.0 or later
  • Swift 4.2 or later

Installation (CocoaPods)

CocoaPods is a dependency manage which automates and simplifies the process of using 3rd-party libraries in your projects. See the Get Started section for more details.


Add following to your Podfile

platform :ios, '11.0'
pod 'AdaptivePlus-iOS', '2.0.10'

and run following command.

$ pod install


1. Put following code to your AppDelegate.swift file (or in any suitable place to initialize SDK)

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {

    let settings = AdaptivePlusSettings(
        clientId: "YOUR_CLIENT_ID",
        clientSecret: "YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET",
        apiKey: "YOUR_API_KEY"
    AdaptivePlus.initialize(settings: settings, verbose: true/false)

    return true
  1. Create AdaptivePlusSettings with apiKey and other credentials that you received upon account registration
  2. Initialize SDK with your AdaptivePlusSettings and optional boolean field (default value is 'false') 'verbose', when set to 'true' allows to observe network logs of the SDK

2. Set locale of SDK as follows

AdaptivePlus.instance.set(language: .en)

Default locale is .default, which takes your app's preferred locale.
It can take one of the following values .en/.ru/.kz/.default.

3. Start SDK

let user = AdaptivePlusUser(userId: {String?})

AdaptivePlus.start(user: user, completion: { isStarted in
    if isStarted {
        print("AdaptivePlus started successfully")
    } else {
        print("AdaptivePlus did not start")

Method takes 2 optional arguments:

  1. AdaptivePlusUser - user of your system/service, useful for identifying the same user across multiple devices
  2. Completion - completion handler which will be called after start method completed with boolean isStarted.

4. Create and use APView

let apView = APView(publicationPageKey: "YOUR_PUBLICATION_PAGE_KEY")
    apView.leftAnchor.constraint(equalTo: leftAnchor),
    apView.rightAnchor.constraint(equalTo: rightAnchor),
    apView.centerYAnchor.constraint(equalTo: centerYAnchor)

Note that the height of APView will be calculated automatically and it's constraint should not be set by the developer.

5. Create and use APViewless for instructions

let apViewless = APViewless(publicationPageKey: "YOUR_PUBLICATION_PAGE_KEY")

func preloadContents() {

func showStory() {

Note that the method preloadContents() should be called before method showStory(). If showStory() gets called before preloadContents() nothing will be shown.

AdaptivePlus Personalized Experience

To make SDK experience more personalized, you can provide following user data to AdaptivePlusUser:

let user = AdaptivePlusUser(
    // In app Client Identifier (Email/Phone/Internal user id)
    userId: "test user id",
    // Client location (latitude & longitude)
    userCoordinate: CLLocationCoordinate2D(latitude: 10.0, longitude: 123.0),
    // Clinet gender
    gender: AdaptivePlusUser.Gender.male,
    // Client age
    age: 22,
    // In app Client Properties (Country/VIP Status, etc)
    properties: ["education": "Bachelor", "country": "Kazakhstan"])

userId: String? - In app Client Identifier (Email/Phone/Internal user id)
userCoordinate: CLLocationCoordinate2D? - user location (latitude & longitude). Required to display geo-oriented content to the user
properties: [String: String]? - user properties, e.g. - country, education, etc. User properties help SDK to select and show content relevant to the user


  • You can reload the content of an APView via corresponding method:
  • You can implement APViewDelegate and set delegate property of APView as follows:
extension YourClass {
    func setAPViewDelegate() {
        apView.delegate = self

extension YourClass: APViewDelegate {
    func apViewDidUpdateContent(view: APView) {
        // handle content update action

    func apViewDidTriggerCustomAction(view: APView, name: String, parameters: [String : Any]) {
        // implementation of AdaptivePlus CustomAction


  • You can implement APViewlessDelegate and set delegate property of APViewless as follows:
extension YourClass {
    func setAPViewlessDelegate() {
        apViewless.delegate = self

extension YourClass: APViewlessDelegate {
    func apViewlessDidFinishStories(viewless: APViewless) {
        // do some your actions when story closed if needed

    func apViewlessDidTriggerCustomAction(name: String, parameters: [String: Any]) {
        // implementation of AdaptivePlus CustomAction

Note that the method apViewlessDidFinishStories gets called after showStory() even it didn't show any story.

AdaptivePlus Verbose Mode

To observe network logs of the SDK - pass true to verbose method:

AdaptivePlus.initialize(settings: adaptivePlusSettings, verbose: true)

Do not forget to switch Verbose Mode off for the release build of your app.
