Is it possible to switch this off in any way or is tough luck?
Why would Apple give you a way to block one of the features it is giving developers?
The ads look like those that are already integrated in free apps already unless you click on them.
you don't have to tap the ads.
this has really put me off using apps.
You mean, put you off to using free apps.
I haven't gotten to use os4 personally but I really doubt it. Heck, rumor has it, its the sole reason iOS4 is free at all.
I think iAds is brilliant. We're gonna see many more quality free apps!
My close personal friend Walt Mosspuppet has developed a device:http://mosspuppet.com/2010/06/10/new-product-iadblocker
long as i dont see iAds in say the photo app...or messages or email app....any of the default apps that comes with iOS...
Something tells me though...the trend of iOS being free could lead to this...
No it wont. Apple is greedy, but they are also smart.
You cant say for sure they won't just like i cant say for sure they will, but you have to wonder if the next major iOS update will be free or not. iAds is a part of the iOS now.
sole reason ios4 is free? no way.
apple has never charged for iphone updates. it might have something to do with them not charging this time for the ipod touch.
Im hoping for a jailbreak "adblock" solution...that would be nice
all an app would have to do is check to make sure certain items are being downloaded or not via the ad's server and choose to lock you out of the app.
Some jailbroken apps did that.
Some apps that were cracked checked back to servers to make sure the app was paid for and if it wasn't it would lock you out.
Yes. Get the paid version w/ no ads.
Of course not. The purpose of iAds is to provide revenue to developers who want to publish "free" apps, but still get revenue.
If you want free apps with no ads, download free apps that don't have ads. Pretty simple.
Otherwise, you're cheating the developers.
While I don't agree with the "relatavistic morals" of the younger generations, if you do, think of it this way. It may be OK to cheat ATT or Apple, but it's really not cool to cheat small developers trying to make a few bucks off an app.
Now, that said, I'd love to see the ability to ad-block in Mobile Safari. Of course, that will never happen, since Apple is never going to allow plug-ins or add-ons in Mobile Safari. I think it's iffy that they might approve this for a browser app. (Have they?)
I'm thinking there could be some solution involving a proxy server and/or VPN and filtering on your PC or server.
(Yea, I know that's relatavistic morals, LOL. But I see web sites differently than apps. Plus, ads on web sites can be SO DAMN ANNOYING. At least iAds stays put in one place and aren't splashed all over the screen.)
Yes, you could pay the developer instead of using free apps.
They have to make money some way. It is either ad revenue or sales. I prefer to give them money directly; support developers and you will get great apps.
People always want something for nothing.
Yes, it's the free apps that will have these ads. If I find out that any paid ones have the ads, I will not buy them because what's the point of buying it when they are making money on the ads as well.
I think of it as being like HBO. It's a premium channel that has no commercials other than it's own adverts for upcoming movies and events. I wouldn't pay for it is it was loading with commercials.
If AT&T is charging $15 for only 200MB, I don't want to get 5MB-10MB iAds with trailers downloaded to my iPhone unless I click on it.
Does anyone know if the ads are downloaded automatically or only if you click an ad?
putting apps on a 3.5in screen that already has a menu bar at the bottom is lame. You're pretty much using a 3in screen maybe even less.
It's not like Apple is introducing ads in a space where they didn't exist.
iAds>what free apps had before (i think admob).
Apple isn't making it more annoying to use free apps, they just want a slice of that revenue and they're making it a better experience. It's the exact same as it used to be: a lot of free apps will have ads and you can buy the paid version to remove them. Simple.
You can bet the iAds will be blocked by the jailbreak community shortly after iOS 4.0 is out. I will definitely be jailbreaking for just that reason.
Then dont use them. Get a job and BUY apps then you wont have to deal with the ads.
what do you do on line? While watching TV? While your out and about in the real world? There are ads everywhere.
Myself personally, I don't watch TV. I cancelled my DirecTV because the only think I ever watched was the local news.
I buy all my TV shows on iTunes simply for the fact that they are commercial free.
