How to remove ads from Android apps

Not everyone can buy every thing they like, that’s a fact. Some of them end up using a cracked version, illegal version to be precise. Others, who respect the law and developer’s efforts, prefer to use the free alternative instead. Of course, you can’t expect that everything a paid app has can be found in a free app. If it becomes true, the premium apps won’t survive. Also, most of the applications in Google Play are free.

    Well one should not encourage to use this app and should respect the work of developer. If you are really annoyed of the ads then better get a paid version.

      Ads on Android or intrusive. Ideally ad should be unobtrusive, and should never be placed in a position where we accidentally click them.
      Placing in a visible position is one thing, and having them in a position to get a click is other thing.

      Most apps place the ads near the back and menu buttons, where there is less visibility and more chances of accidental clicks. Nobody would look for an app like this if they placed the ads at the top where the userflow isn’t disturbed.

      Well, I agree with you, As Satish said, click jacking is rather annoying, which isn’t a fair deal with the advertisers anyway.
