    Do you like them Ad-Supported and Free? Or do you like them costing $X.YY and have no ads at all?

    Advantages of Ad-Supported:

    • Guaranteed revenue stream for the Developer
    • No Cost to the End user

    Disadvantages of Ad-Supported:

    • Kinda obtrusive
    • Might turn away potential buyers

    Advantages of Charged app:

    • Better looking UI since you do not need to account for Ads
    • In some cases, higher revenue stream if app is popular

    Disadvantages of Charged app:

    • Not as predictable or guaranteed revenue stream

    It doesn't matter to me if there is ads ya know.
    Chances are they won't be too distracting.

    I like the option to have either or, some games adds dont bother me at all but others really really do. Like for instance the new free flip side 5 hockey and tic tac toe have adds and they are horribly annoying, I would much rather pay a dollar to get the adds removed but on pro blackjack they dont bother me and I'd rather have the free version. It just depends, but as a whole I want to pay to have no adds.

    not on the apps by flip side 5, they were smart, you have to have wifi to play it the first time and then it doesnt matter cuz it loads the adds and then they pop up, even if you turn off wifi, they got smart, and it sucks.

    Wow. Moar spam. Who cares? Apps are apps. I prefered the 1.1.x ones though. More wholesome. This whole forum has moved from jailbreak to Appstore.

    I just like good apps. Whether they be free with ads or charged without ads.
