    Pandora ads. (getting annoying)

    Advertisement



    Has anyone noticed that Pandora is now allowing voice ads? For instance, I was listening to my "tool"station and then some silly ad for gillette fusion started playing outta nowhere then I switched to another station and the same commercial played after a few songs. WTH is going on ? Doesn't bother me asmuch but what the deuce Pandora :-/

    Expect it. Its a free app so its gonna have adds either way. So if you honesty can't stand it anymore. You can always up grade and be add free. Oh and of course your not limited to the 6 skip per hour deal.

    Ads are annoying, I feel your pain. If it contains Ads I delete it and it's offically on my "App Blacklist". I gladly pay for things just so I don't have Ads. It's worth it to me.

    The paid version still only allows 6 skips per hour due to a licensing agreement it has.

    thats not the way to do it, if you use the app quite a bit pay for it. dont just rob the devs blind if they dont deserve it.

    It's all good dude. No worries. Piracy has always existed and I don't think it's gonna go away any time soon. We just don't use ships nor eye patches or go Around saying arrrrrrr! It's not robbing the devs it's just borrowing until you get sick of the item and decide to give it back or a new version comes out . Just messig with ya. I used to make themes and didn't charge a one because I didn't see why people would have to pay for something that's not really worth some of the ridiculous amounts some people charge. I figured to just throw a donate button but did I get much from it? Nope. Was I mad? Nope. Why? Because people love to get things for free and it ain't ever gonna change

    True, but if you find it useful donate. The people that make these apps are usually doing this for a living and not just some random dev that does it for a hobby. If everyone steals it and never contributes anything back do you honestly think they will continue to come up with updates and new features if they are a for profit company? Probably not

    I pay for the apps I feel worthy, if it's crappy, I won't pay (and will most likely delete it) for it.....but I do have a couple Cydia apps (iFile & LockInfo) that I paid for because they are "must have" for me.

    exactly, its ok to try before you buy just dont keep using it if you REALLY like it or it has great benefits to you and you just cant operate your phone without it. If they offered it up free its a different story then go ahead and use the crap out of it if you feel its worthy.
