...Almost looks like a botched ad insert...?
I must've purchased something that got me access to Tapatalk without ads at some point, because I don't get ads in it. Wasn't even aware that it had ads, but I do remember having paid for the tablet version or something somewhere along the line, before I took an extended vacation from the forum.

If you've got an old TT2 apk it doesn't have ads.Thanks for the info @mountainbikermark. I guess it's safe to say that installing an older apk is still going to have the ads? Like I said before, I don't mind ads that are at the top / bottom of a screen and display what they are for. They have to make $ some way. I don't like their new style of things popping into the middle of a post while I am trying to reply with only buttons labeled "Play" "Install Now" etc, and no way of knowing where you will end up if you accidentally click one.
They want to get paid for the companies who embed ads. Hijacked ads don't bring them any revenue.Update: I sent an e-mail to the Tapatalk folks last night and have had three replies already. They asked if I had screenshots, which I do, so I sent those. After that, they replied that those type of ads are not allowed in their app and said they would do their best to remove them. Then another member asked what City & Zip Code I was in when this happened so they can further narrow down the culprit. Maybe that's why not everyone sees the same ads all the time? They seem like they genuinely want to help make their app a pleasant user experience.
True, very true. Like i said yesterday, I don't mind the ads that are clearly an ad and stay at the top or bottom of the page. There is one for Chevy trucks on the bottom of my Tapa screen right now. But I know what it is and don't want a new truck so I will not click it. But random "PLAY" buttons floating around the screen is not cool. And I'm sure you are correct, they are probably not paying supporters, so the Tapa folks don't want them invading their app.They want to get paid for the companies who embed ads. Hijacked ads don't bring them any revenue.
I have the paid version so I never see them.
Aaaaand here we'll go again. If they're that desperate for revenues make another app besides TT or add on paid themes ability again, something besides the nonsense they've been doing since 2010.
I'll say it again,I really wish there were an alternative to Tapatalk that would catch on with forums.
