Annoying ads in Tapatalk
« on: August 19, 2019, 07:06:32 PM »
Used to just see an intermittent banner ad, at the top, of John Palmer's ugly mug or some such, when viewing the forum in Tapatalk.   Last few days, there are a lot of non-brewing related ads interspersed in the topics.  Anybody else seeing this?  Any reason?

I just thought I remembered something a while back about AHA having some agreement wuth them over what ads would appear here.  I could be misremembering.

I don't see any ads, but purchased the pro version for $2.99.  Worth it for ad free IMO.

That's it.  Is that a new development for you?  Did you previously just see brewing related banner ads at the top of the index pages?

Tapatalk Pro is now $9.99 on the App Store now and the description doesn’t mention ad free as a feature. It may have changed.

There is an in app purchase option for ad free: $0.99/month, $9.99/year, or $14.99 forever.

I don’t know when they started. It seems like I didn’t used to get them but I cannot tell you when I started noticing them.
