Apple's description of the app reads: "The iAd Gallery is a celebration of advertising, featuring iAd campaigns from some of the world's best brands and their advertising agencies."

The format was launched first in the US in July 2010. Brands that have used them include Nespresso, Perrier, Citi, Evian, LG Display, AB InBev, Unilever, Turkish Airlines and Absolute Radio.

The app gives information on both the ads and the agencies behind them.

Apple believes the app will appeal to agency professionals, as well as consumers who are interested in ads.

Apple recently dropped the minimum price needed to use the iAds network by around half to £325,000, to attract smaller brands to the platform.

Absolute Radio said it experienced a 70% to 80% uplift in brand engagement from using iAds. Clive Dickens, managing director for Absolute, said the platform offered something "over and above" other mobile or web ad platforms.

Rival Android now has 51% of the smartphone market in the US, making Google's Admob the dominant player, but variations in the power and capacity of handsets give an inconsistent experience, according to Dickens.
