Everything is fine here. Could you try to clear app data and login again? Don't worry, you will not lose your current beta states.

I only found this app a couple of days ago and was really impressed but the latest update had me reaching for the uninstall button.
If I click anything I get 2 adverts under each other. When the timer finishes and I close the advert low and behold there is another sitting there.
A real shame. If have happily supported you but the greed shown by double adverts and the intrusive level has shown no care for the users.
You may have had ungrateful users in the past but no need to take it out on the rest of us.
I've given it a one star review as a result. Had I reviewed it yesterday it would have been five. Shame.

It s not greed, it s users lack of common sense. Check out the post liked below

You think you didn t deserve this? So show me where is your 5 stars rating review. Ignoring to rate a good app is not better than give 1 star man.

It is greed you arrogant arse. Read what I said. I got the app a couple of days ago. Need to see it in action before I review but YOU nerfed it.
Destroyed your perfectly good app and acted like a spoiled brat.
1 star is too good for you.
Like I said. The day before I would have rated it 5 stars and indeed I was about to. Guess it was bad timing but I don't see you getting any new users by laying ads on top of ads.

I see your point, you are a new user and you're paying for other people's fault. I don't know if you genuinely we're about to rate it 5 stars but the fact is that you didn't, and this is not so far from other people s behavior.

Yes generally people are not good at thanking authors. Thats one of the main reasons I stopped developing years ago. But you went too far the other way in my opinion.
Why not set it up less intrusive and maybe give people the option of a couple of days without ads to make up their mind before buying.
It's a fine line a developer has to walk between making it worthwhile developing and pissing everyone off.

Currently the ad frequency is very low (I set up very high ECPM) so this is a problem only few people are facing (you re in UK, and I guess advertisers spend lot of money there if you are seeing many ads).

I respect your opinion, but you could even respect the fact that now the app has non removable (for free) ads, so it s your choice to stay or leave.

Updated to the latest version, re-enabled ads (I have also bought the no ads feature, in order to support the dev) and I find the ads just right. such excellent app needs a nice amount of revenue. people whom complain about every inch of your app always exist, no matter how good the app is going to be. at least now there is a fair price to be able to use the app. can't say that I would mind watching even a 15 sec ad now and then. afterall, everything good comes at a price. keep up your good work dev!!
