[SOLVED] Android: Set Admob programmatically into test mode

(6) When integrating AdMob ads into your application it is recommended to use test mode. In test mode test, ads are always returned.

Test mode is enabled on a per-device basis. To enable test mode for a device, first request an ad, then look in LogCat for a line like the following:

Once you have the device ID you can enable test mode by calling AdManager.setTestDevices:

  AdManager.setTestDevices( new String[] {                 
AdManager.TEST_EMULATOR, // Android emulator
"E83D20734F72FB3108F104ABC0FFC738", // My T-Mobile G1 Test Phone
} );
