We are open to suggestions on how to be supported in order to get rid of ads. If you have ideas, please share them :)

meneer's picture

Great idea and it works nice enough. But after tapping the idon, an annoying ad (in my own language) appears on top of the screen. Showing an ad on top of the screen is not quite what I like on my Jolla.

GiuliettaSW's picture

Agreed ads break the experience. We are working on trying to replace this, suggestions are welcomed.

meneer's picture

I would suggest to offer a free version with just 1 button and a paypal supported version with more buttons. don't built ad function, but use a key to unlock. some manual labor, but this will help support by community.

Yes, an unlock key would be a useful workaround until paid apps are available in the Jolla store, or an alternative for people who wouldn't want to download from there.
