Advertising in aquamail Pro
« on: October 02, 2018, 08:37:59 pm »
I Just updated aquamail update, beta.
I am aquamail Pro user.

When I tried to open an attachment, I was offered prominently to install office suit and in small letters below, written use alternative.

Now this is not fair for pro users. And if forced upon every time I Open the attachment, I will be the first person to ditch this other wise excellent application permanently.

Please remove the advertisement as early as posdible.

Thanks

When I see ads in AquaMail Pro, I will switch over to FairEmail.

But I hope it just happened accidentally.

Re: And if forced upon every time I Open the attachment

This prompt will only show a limited number of times - and it's a very small number.

We do understand that if the user is not interested - he / she is not interested.

In case when there are *no* apps that are able to open a particular attachment type, the prompt will show a few times more (which I hope makes sense).

Please remove the advertising.

This is wrong. I have several apps installed e.g. for opening PDFs, just none from the MobiSystems family.

The prompt will show "a small number of times" in any case.

And a few times more (still a small number of times) if there are *no* apps that can open the particular attachment type.

So, "Ad-free" doesn't mean Ad-free for the MobiSystems company?

That's not trustworthy.

Please remove the advertising, at least if the user has already installed apps, which are able to open a particular attachment type.

Ad-free means Ad-free means Ad-free...
[at least from to the user's point of view 8)]

Yes makes sense. We'll discuss it.

@Kostya
In the largest german-speaking Android forum, there we give support for AquaMail.

Now it happens: Users are afraid to use and buy AquaMail because the Pro version will now also contain advertising:
https://www.android-hilfe.de/forum/e-mail.2242/emailapp-bei-der-man-direkt-im-banner-gelesen-auswaehlen-kann.891773.html#post-11248777


Please make clear that the Pro version will never contain ads.

This is what a user in this thread above just have written (he would use AquaMail, but...) :

"Well, I don't pay 10 € for possibly getting ads." (translated by DeepL)

I can understand him.

... or MobiSystems will loose potential (new) user base.

We already paid for the app. Why the need to add ads now?
Should it be reported to Google for bad behaviour?
They are placing ads instead of a common open dialog from Android so "Interfering with Apps, Third-party Ads, or Device Functionality". That's totally prohibited by Google Play policy.

No reaction from Mobisystems here for 14 days. That doesn't sound good.

Instead they spread their new version more and more.
