calling ads.hide() does not stop ad requests (inmobi only)


I am running some experiments using Charles web proxy and found another bug in inmobi ads implementation. Here it is;

Calling ads.hide() does not stop background http ad requests, it only make ads display unvisible. Requesting ads without displaying them surely causes a bad effect on our CTR, and this situation could be a performance penalty in some circumstances.

You could easily reproduce the problem simply using inmobi ads sample coming with the corona sdk and inspecting network http packets with a http proxy like Charles.

Affected builds;
Tested on 706 and latest stable (704), but i am pretty sure that it also effects latest daily builds

Here is the bug report if you want to track further;


This is fixed in the next daily build.
