Just noticed this last night on the free version. Its now showing ads on the main reading page rather than just the selection menu. How long has it been doing this? Ah well time to get the full version, I've been meaning to but haven't added a credit card to my account yet.

I added this a few releases ago.

After 1000 pages read you get an ad every 20 pages. Does not seem too intrusive for me.
My calculation was 1000/25 = 40 comics or 40 * 10 to 15 min or about 8 hours spent with the app.

It seems it just kicked in for you now.
And yes, it is meant as an incentive to get the full version for people really using the app :)

This is a sneaky and dare I say somewhat diabolical attempt at arm-twisting ... I love it! Nicely designed nagware feature just intrusive enough to make the point without being unbearable.

On a side note, I paid for the app out of the box some time ago. While it may be the slacker in me, is there any way to get credit for buying the app and dispense with the slightly less diabolical nag message in the standard PC version?

I fear I may have just opened myself up to a chorus of snorts of derision ... :unsure:

Java devil, you are now my bitch.

I explained elsewhere that the payment systems are not the same.

Funny thing is that I think about this the other way round. Basically the Android ad is really changing the experience of the reader. While a registration reminder dialog that is shown only during start (I keep ComicRack usually running for days) does not change anything...

I actually found the ads very annoying and sometimes I see them every 3-4 pages (or less).

I actually had some suggestions to make them less bothersome but I figured I'd make a new thread for that.

The other day I hit the point where I have started to see Ads and it is a little bothersome since it is every comic and if reading a file with say 100+ pages you are going to see the Ad a fair few times.

I know this is there to hopefully boost sales and I have to say I am tempted! But since I only use my Tablet for Comics really I've never put my info into the Google Play Market! Might have to change that though since Wi-Fi Sync would also be nice :)

I think it would be better to say have one Ad come up on a random page every 3-4 comics read or something this way if you are reading a really long one you are not going to have to close it down multiple times.

Yeah, I'm getting the damn pop-up ad every 3-4 pages now too. I was gonna buy it until I saw the price had gone up. It's bad enough when it just randomly skips pages back & forth, now I gotta pay $8 just to get to read a full 20 page comic without seeing 5-6 ads over the screen? Not happy with the app at all now. I'm actively looking for a cheaper comic reader.
