Is this version the last ad-free version for users with pro-key?

Pro versions are still Ad Free.

Maybe our "file open / office suite prompt" looks like an ad to you, but it isn't.

For me as a user it is an unwanted ad and it behaves like an unwanted ad.

However, could you answer my question?

Yes I also understand that.

Also please keep in mind that the Office Suite prompt only shows three times at most (if you already have apps that can open your attachment type) or five times at most (if you don't).

An Mobisystems should keep in mind that the pro version is descrived "ad free". You're crossing a line.

How do we know that there won't come more?

No ;). The question was, if the version in this thread is the last without those annoying ads. I need a version number as an answer, please.

(The question was not to explain your own somewhat strange definition of ads ;))

Personally I think they're similar to ads - so I understand when users (yourself included) call it ads

But I also agree that these are not ads.

For one, they show only a limited number of times and a small number, whereas ads show "all the time".

For two, ads typically "target" you personally (you'll see ads for things you searched on the web, for example... using technologies like Google Advertising ID for Google ads and similar techs for other ad providers). This prompt doesn't do that.

Language aside - the prompt is obviously "there" in the app, our business people wanted it.

If you wish - feel free to email support / at / aqua-mail dot com

Re: How do we know that there won't come more?

At this time, I'm not aware of any future plans to do any more "ad / promotional" type stuff.

But - in general, how do you know anything at all about the future? Do you?

---

"if the version in this thread is the last without those annoying ads"

My answers are:

- In 1.17 we added a promotional prompt to install Office Suite

- It only shows a limited number of times, and this limited number of times is very small

- Even though I understand why you're calling it "an ad" - it's not an ad

- As for the "those annoying ads" - I have no idea

Surely you can't call "annoying" something that shows only 3 times (5 times if you don't have an app that can open a particular attachment type, but in that case the prompt is actually "useful" not "annoying").

You're also referring to "those ... ads" in plural - now I'm completely lost, the prompt is in "one" (single not plural) place in the app and it's "one" (single not plural) thing not many (plural).

This is what I wanted to know in my first question. Thank you. So 1.16.x is free of it.

The further argumentations or justifications for the type of advertising may belong more in this theme where everyone will see it:

That's why I'm not writing about it here anymore.

Had kotsya been the decision maker, he would never had put an advert. But I think he is not the decision maker, and he can not practice his principles. The decisions are driven by business consideration and are driven by any thing but principles.

We all should understand and appreciate this !

I would accept this trade off. As  the prompt was there for very limited time. If that helped mobysystem to keep going with this excellent app and its development, it is worth compromising.

Having said this,  frankly, I have already purchased an alternative email app as a standby and I am getting used to it, should there be  an another dose of  advertisement (which would not be an advertisement technically, as per moby.. ), then from that instant, I can smoothly switch over.

Keeping my fingers crossed.
