App ads are getting troublesome

While I understand the need for advertisers in order to support the free app for us cheap users, more and more advertisers are putting the “X” to close the ad UNDER my iphones battery/WiFi/ Signal strength icons. It’s clever, but the only way out is to force close the app and then reopen. It’s almost impossible to close the ads any other way.

I’m willing to put up with the ads, but that’s really dirty IMHO.

I generally agree, ads are getting worse here andother places. It’s why I chose to support DuoLingo for an ad-less experience (iOS). For that alone it was worth it for me.

The annoying ads were also one of my reasons for going PLUS. And it's really great to be able download and study offline.
