    Adds just started showing up today in Tapatalk on this site.
    Is this intentional?

    Nothing to do with us. Must be the app itself.

    Hopefully they share the proceeds with this site like they say.
    Otherwise I dont want to see them. (I am not going to pay then either to not see them)[​IMG]

    We don't receive anything from them. I will double check that they didn't add a new option and automatically opt us in.

    Still there.
    Gave it some time incase things needed time.
    I shut off the google play auto update on phone a while ago and havent seen ads on here yet. Turned off auto update on tablet cause each update makes things worse.
    I guess one needs to continue to change the interface in some way (breaking things along the way) for job security..
    Like the app, but if the one other forum gets add i may drop back to browser based.
    Sigh....

    OK, after updating the pluggin it appears that we have to pay to not have ads on tapatalk. I don't think we need to be spending money to keep what is an off-shoot app used by only a small percentage of users ad-free. We could ditch the app entirely, I would be in favour of that over paying them.

    I think the site is much nicer in a browser anyway:)
