Hi Guys,

As mobile advertising comes, do you like banner Ads in your (free) apps? Myself dislike it, as well as others. But some guy can accept it, especially when it's free.
How about you?

Br,
Jarod

I think to some extent its a necessary evil - app developers need some way of making money. I just prefer it when the developer at least tries to integrate them into the app rather than slapping them on as an afterthought.

The various Twitter clients do a good job with that - actually presenting relevant ads in the twitter stream. I actually really like those for some reason.

Ads by there very nature are meant to be blunt instruments meant to break your attention away from the content in order to hock goods and services. Unless its some kind of imbedded advertising, like tie-ins or products placement, theirs no need to waist energy making ads look integrated. Focus the energy on content and better apps not ads.

I don't mind ads as long as ...

A. they are designed in and not an afterthought as noted above.
B. there is some way to make sure the ads are relevant to me even in the broadest sense.

At this point in the life of the Internet, it seems dumb to be even grumpy about ads attached to free content as a means of monetizing it. Like, dislike, it is what it is.

Now, if you want to target specifics about how iAds work, there might be traction for real discussion.

Hi Jim,

Yes, I specifically intended on iAd (include AdMob 4 iPhone) experience. From my own experience, i really never meet a ads that I want ( relevant to what i'm doing ), neither convinced by Apple's iAds explanation ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpR679kiyEY ) .
