DoubleClick For Publishers Advanced Native Example

This project is an advanced native ads example intended to show how publishers might construct a list-based user experience (such as a news feed might have) that incorporates multiple native ad formats.

The project uses a single activity that maintains a ListView and an array of items. Most of these items are mocked listings for real estate, which stand in example application data. Placed among the sample listings are AdPlacement objects. These objects us AdFetchers to request ads from DFP Custom Rendering, construct NativeAdView instances to display them, and cache references to individual asset views in AdViewHolders.

Most of the AdPlacement classes handle a single type of ad. The MultiFormatAdPlacement, however, can request and display App Install, Content, and either of two custom template formats.
