    I know wpcentral guys will basically tell me to **** off and buy the app, but can you guys at least not show ads of semi nude girls, i cant even check wpcentral with people around.


    Would never have updated if i knew this was the case.

    I know i have no say in this matter, but just wanted to get this off my chest as wpcentral USED to be the best app i had ever downloaded.

    If you don't want anything semi-nude, then why get anything "off your chest?"

    All jokes aside, your argument is valid, and would probably be taken seriously if you contact the wpc team directly. Especially if it's a religious reason.

    My understanding is that the developer has no control over the advertising content, so it's not really their fault.

    They use ad choice so it means the cookies in the computer suggest you enjoy half naked ladies :)

    Because it is all part of a master plan to weed out all the cheapies and force them to spend money and support the devs by bombarding them with t***y bar type ads...

    Bashbaliga, the adverts are provided from the Nokia ad exchange, and I was not aware that these adverts were being sent. As mentioned I don't have direct control but if you could provide me with your region I'll try and work out which network is providing these ads and see if I can have them blocked.

    Again, as mentioned previously, if you'd got in touch with me about this I would have been happy to do what I can

    Just as a follow up by the way, the ads that are served are completely generic because I chose not to include any personal information about users. It is possible to include age and gender but we don't gather that information from you.

    Another option would be to use geolocation and send that information to the ad networks. In return the revenue is higher and it might also stop these ads from coming through to regions which would find them more offensive, but I felt that it wasn't necessary to send this kind of information about my users when all I'm trying to do is set up a revenue stream from users who chose to use the free version of the app.

    Side note: the last provider, AdDuplex, doesn't make money for apps that use it, just exposure through advertising apps.

    Regardless, please provide me your region at the earliest convenience so that I can report this to Nokia ad Exchange and try to do something about it.

    I want to complain !!! I also am getting Sesame Street!! How do I get on the list to get half naked girls????

    Edit: I see this is completely random, I guess I will have to get off my *** and buy the app (honest it was on my todo list). Half naked ladies is one thing but I can not allow the Sesame Street thing to continue.

    What if the ads displayed relate on content, you recently consumed on your phone :D

    Note to self, when I want to see ads of Farrah abraham on the WPC app, go read an article that has her name in it. Gotcha.

    OK. This is frustrating to me now guys.

    To those who want to complain and say "Yes I'm very disgusted", I repeat:

    There is nothing I can do unless you specify your region. I need to pass this complain on to the guys at Nokia Advertising Exchange and I simply cannot go to them with "some of my users are seeing half naked women".

    If this is disgusting you, then for goodness sake get in touch with me about it so I can HELP. Otherwise I will be forced to believe that you're complaining simply because it seems like something you can complain about.

    If you're not offended or disgusted enough to pay $1, then you are neither.

    For just a DOLLAR, 99 cents... you can be rid of the ads that rob you of your innocence! You can save your virgin eyes from the evil of the world!

    In all seriousness, I didn't think twice to pay for the app way back when it first came out. People pay hundreds of dollars for a phone, and on their monthly plan over time... and they're like OMGADOLLARWHYARETHEYRIPPINGMEOFF for an app they use daily. Pay for the app, get rid of the ad, support WPC and skip the Starbucks or Dunkin coffee tomorrow.
