After that Latitude and Longitude can be used to get Addresses available on these coordinates. To fetch address from coordinates of the device, we use Geocoder service.

AdMob Plus is a Cordova plugin to use Google AdMob in hybrid applications like Ionic. AdMob Plus is developed by same developer Ratson who previously developed and maintained AdMob Free plugin. Ratson wanted to create an AdMob plugin with no ad sharing, as most of the plugin do, they take a part of the revenue from developer earning when they cross a certain threshold. But Ratson was interested to develop an open source project where a developer can use AdMob without any risk of revenue sharing.
