Chartboost, a relatively new way for Android developers to monetize their games with in game advertising, has just opened up their beta to all Android developers. Chartboost has been in a closed beta with top Android developers Animoca and Storm8.

High volume Android games can now sell their own inventory directly to other games skipping the average 50% cut that ad networks typically charge. Smaller developers can cross-promote their own games for free and take advantage of new monetization options that use rich media ads like full screen interstitial ads.
“With the Android Market topping 10 billion downloads earlier this year and Android phones outselling iPhones by a 2-to-1 margin in the last three months, and many people purchasing new mobile phones over the holidays, now is the perfect time to launch the platform for game publishers to maximize the revenue potential of their apps.” Maria Alegre, CEO of Chartboost said in a statement.
Chartboost launched earlier this year and is already working with top name publishers like Pocket Gems, Disney Mobile, Gameview, Animoca and many more.
