Best ad networks?

Any good mobile ad networks list you recommend in order of preference and greatness?

I am very disappointed last 2 years with Chartboost

My very humble opinion:

Unity Ads (video, rewarded video)
Facebook Audience Network (banner, interstitial, native)

I suggest to take a look at mediation services that include dozens of ad networks:
https://www.heyzap.com/ (clean and simple)
http://www.mopub.com/ (by Twitter, more powerful but harder to setup)

With mediation you can select ad networks that offer the best prices for your game's audience.

Unity ads cannot use because I believe you need game coded in Unity but mine are coded in Objective C.


Also Google are nasty and evil banning me for no reason from Adsense so I cannot use Admob because you need Adsense account to start with.

Banner

What network is best for banner ads to make money?

For example is Mopub really honest and good?

That is one of the huge pluses for unity ads. You know you will get paid. Elsewhere might offer a little more but fill rates might suck and you might not even get paid in the end.

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.

I was recently watching a webinar by deltaDNA and it was focused on their ad mediation solution.

I think it's worth checking it out because they offer quite a lot intelligent tools to help you maximize your revenue by combining their platform's deep analysis potential with various partner ad networks. Honestly, 30 minutes well spent .
