Dave12308 posted the following in a recent thread and the article he included gave me a completely different perspective on the incidence of airpush ads. Read the article he links to about AirPush and voice your opinion.
Prior to reading this article, I got rid of any app where it caused me to get ads in my notification status area. They were scary (thought it could have been a virus or hack) and an annoyance. But after reading this article, I can see a benefit to these ads rather than the ads embedded in the apps. I am all for free apps and install a free version whenever possible knowing it will come with ads. But sometimes these ads bog down the app making it lag. Having the ads show up in your status bar is an alternative to those ads embedded in your app and slowing it down. And, of course, if we want free apps, we need to support the developers so ads are necessary. What does everyone think? If ads are necessary,which would you prefer, ads embedded in the app, in the status bar or an icon in your home screen?
Thanks Dave, for the article and the new perspective.
