- No, I don't pirate software, I just have a problem with someone else pirating my mobile data, which is what ads on mobile amount to.Mar 13, 2013
- No... YOU choose to install them. By installing them and knowing that they have ads in them, you are the one giving permission to use the data.
Nice try bud...gonna have to come up with a better argument than that.Mar 13, 2013
- Funny you should mention it, because that's exactly how it used to work during the pre-y2k era of the internet. There used to be heaps of sites/programs that paid you to watch ads (eg: GetPaid2Surf). All we had to do was sacrifice an inch of our screen and ads would be constantly displayed there. They would pay based on how actively you were using the computer. I even got paid a few times by them - but unfortunately, some jerks had to ruin the whole thing by using keyboard/mouse simulation programs, and then the whole pay-to-view-ads market just died. :(Mar 13, 2013
- Good, ads make developers money, developers breathe life into the platform. Grabbing an app/game that is meant to be paid by ads and removing them, is not different from downloading it "ilegally".Mar 13, 2013
- eyy someone got to pay for the free appsMar 14, 2013
- I must admit that I have unrooted my Nexus 4 and locked the bootloader again. And yes, I have used an ad blocker before too.
My Nexus 7 is still rooted (but stock) but I haven't installed any ad blocker too.
Interesting is, that I have apps that don't show any ads on my N4 but that do show ads on the N7...Mar 14, 2013
