Bejeweled (.99 -> Free)

Been there for a few hours, but appinfo's just now displaying it properly.

I see a "play ad-free" IAP, though, so this may not be as awesome as it looks.

There are ads on the left, and in between every game there Is a full screen ad. That ad is usually a video ad the you can skip after watching 5-10 seconds of.

Not that great of a deal, I wonder how this works for people that already had it before?

So it's now freemium rather than a sale? I wonder if my ad blocker will make the game playable? Probably just going to skip this completely.

This sucks. I bought this game when it was first released on the iPad. I hate having to keep the old ipa file to make things ad free. Sucks for people who already bought the game and want to re-install, do autoupdates, and don't back up their old games. Developers need to make things like this into a seperate free app.

I have the HD version installed and then updated to the latest "free" version. I played a bit after the update and saw no ads.

Went ahead and tried it and yes it appears freemium. More technically admium since ads seem to be the big addition. I guess the popularity was wearing off? Whatever the case the game seems ok. Not sure ill keep it as I have premium match 3 games without ads and IAP.
