    I have a Droid X and everytime i play a game there are always these annoying ads all over the place. Does anyone know how to block these ads?

    Yes, there are apps for that in the market.

    But I think it's about time people started thinking about not using the apps. The reason is the ads pay for your app. Eventually advertisers are going to stop supporting these apps because people are using ad blockers.

    Developers don't make money. The Market doesn't improve.

    I could be wrong, I'm just hypothesizing. I use a DVR and I never watch commercials yet television survives.

    If you want great apps like they have in Apple's App Store then it's got to be paid for. Your choice.

    Or, in the case of many apps, you could just buy the add free version of the games you really like.

    I know, I know, money is precious. But when you are drinking your next $3 cafe latte, which will only last about 10 minutes, give it some thought.

    I see what you're saying & I like the ad based system but is there any difference in not seeing them & not clicking on them? Isn't it based on you being redirected?

    Another note, as an unemployed sole, I never clicked any ad seen on my droid nor have they helped me find anythin useful, IMO, if ur not an ad browser, BLOCK THEM!
