Oh, I recognise that. It's in the side menu on the iPad. Not seen it in a pop up though.

Probably only does pop up once on the smaller iDevices. It`s really not worth mentioning it since if you are using the App on a regular base you will have already forgotten that there was an ad after a few Hours

JFYI these types of ads are very carefully curated, and presented in a way that we thought was actually cool and useful. It should only pop up once a week, if it's happening more than that you likely tapped the ad on the main screen of the app on accident.

I've seen it exactly once. Big deal. For the value TA has given me over the years for free, I'm happy to click on an ad now and then.

Shock horror, TouchArcade actually needs to make money. How else should they do it? Any dev will tell you that banner ads don't generate enough money...

Would you prefer to buy an annual subscription?

It's not so bad now I know it's only once a week (though it's twice a week for me because I use the app on my iPhone and iPad).

I like the idea of an IAP to get rid of the ads though.

i think it's annoying, but TA needs to make money. the funny thing is that the game advertised (captain antarctica) TA rated only 3 stars in their review, so if they are going to advertise, they might as well advertise a game they think is good!

I think you guys should talk with Madfinger and see if they want to put in some pop ups for Dead Trigger 2.

It is annoying.

TouchArcade should be able to bring in $$$.

Both statements are true.

But should TA find a way to profit without being annoying?

Full screen pop ups like this usually have a 99% accidental click-through. Is that profitable for which ever company is running the campaign?
