The application has the following settings:

The length of each message is 10,000 pixels long. You can create a 50,000 pixel long message if you use all five messages together. For reference, Picasso's famously long name, "Pablo Diego José Francisco de ... Picasso" is 132 characters and 1,107 pixels long.
"Banner Free" is a free version with ads; "Banner" is a paid version with no ads.
What's New in Version 2.1.1
So I looked over the update info before loading it. Stupid me to not realize that when the only description is "Ad Enabled" it would only stick a pop up ad function onto an other wise fun app.
So I'll dump this chump like several others have done.
Stupid of the developer to point out that "Banner" is the Ad free new version, but it doesn't show up in the app store. Nor is there a purchase link "in app"
I guess I'll have to return to telling people what I think verbally.
Obnoxious Ads make it unusable.
Very rarely do I ever have an issue with Ads. I really Ads because it allows me to have a quality product that I pay with my time.
Unfortunately, these Ads are not done with proper taste. The Ads scroll underneath your sign. It makes the App unusable.
I have had this app for years and it worked great with no ads. But now the latest version had ads. No ads for years, good, now ads, bad!
