    It seems like almost every app in Cydia, including Cydia itself, has ads now. And the apps won't launch if you use your "hosts" file to block AdMob.

    And I realize that they support the developer, I'm an ungrateful SOB, yadda yadda yadda, but they still annoy me.

    Which would you rather have: Pay a monthly fee download/access Apps on Cydia or Ads so you don't have to do so?

    I wouldn't even mind if they only came up occasionally. If they showed, say, once every five times you launched the app, that would be perfectly fine. But having them show constantly is rather vexing.

    No, you would still complain.

    I don't think anyone minds the ads in Cydia all THAT much - they only show up when you look in the "More Info" area of an application or in non-obtrusive banners. It's when they show up in Categories and you don't have the option of skipping them (save by disconnecting from WiFi) that it gets annoying. I think that's actually a pretty good reason to buy programs in App Store, versus the free ad-supported cousins.

    Now, when you pay for the app and get ads ANYWAYS... that's when I'll get annoyed.
