Ratings and Reviews
This looks very handy. Thank you for putting it out.
$6 app with ads!
Could be a great app, but after spending $6 for this app, very disappointed to see ads as well. These ads should be removed -especially at this price.
What is also clearly stated in the first sentence of your description is that this app is “free”. I think most people assume that with a free app there will be ads. However, I thought that with this paid version of $6 (not a cheap app) the ads would be removed.
In addition, all the screenshots of your app don’t show any ads. And the ads do affect user experience and are annoying—I have inadvertently clicked on them a number of times.
It is incredibly irritating while pouring over your favourite app, to be interrupted by irrelevant advertising flickering all over your screen & yet advertising is what makes this app possible. We have developed an advertising system that works in harmony with TRAIL GUIDE SOUTH AFRICA.
Most of the advertising is integrated such as the venues accessible from Local Info or Equipment & for our super sponsors, there are banners that open up when tapped, they are all great & relevant products so it's interesting to view them, but it won't detract from the functionality or user experience in any way. There are no adverts that block your screen or any of the functions, the banners that scroll at the base of the app need to be selected to be accessed.
ON THE DESCRIPTION IN THE APP STORE THE FOLLOWING IS CLEARLY STATED:
Sponsored Local attractions, restaurants, accommodation venues and gear stores near every trail
Selected outdoor sports and trail related banners appear at the base of the app, these are sponsored, relevant products and events and the adverts do not interfere with the use of the the app, stop it in any way or require any action or purchase.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
