Good for you, but myself a rooted/unlocked S3 owner that uses Adaway app, I am extremely disappointed, once you go add free you can never go back, LOL.
Not sure if this is related but I noticed Speed Booster is gone too. I still have it on my phone but I clicked to rate it and the play store says it can't find it.
More on topic: anyone who already has an ad blocking app on their device isn't going to be all that affected by this change and I'm sure the apk files will end up on back channel websites.
I don't mind ads in apps if they're non intrusive and the ad content is not objectionable. But if an app has ads that popup or temporarily limit the usage of the app (like a camera app I tried) then I'll just uninstall it. There has to be a balance.
On the flip side I think we should still be able to block ads from webpages because they tend to slow down browsing the web especially for those of us still using 3G.
there is also the option of making your own file. Lots of people post the domains they block and what not so its just a copy/paste into your phone anyways.
I'm fine with this news. Besides, in all fairness, they DID violate that section of the agreement.

Yeah, I've used AdFree forever, and all that does is download a list to add to the hosts file.
Simple, old trick that's still effective.
Don't see the big deal. While some apps have more obtrusive use of ads, developers SHOULD get a return on their investment developing useful apps to users and shouldn't have to be deterred from it.
Then perhaps Google should charge you a subscription fee to remove the ads from your device.
I'm ok with Google ads in free apps. But I was forced to install AdFree when I was unable to navigate a web site because an ad popped up that was bigger than the part shown on the screen and every time I tried to swipe around it it launched the ad target instead.
i installed ad blocker when ads were generating more bandwidth use then app itself.
pretty much word-for-word my thoughts
