It is rumored that you might be seeing commercials when you boot up your favorite App Store apps! Imagine paying for Beejive only to have an unauthorized ad crammed down your throat everytime you open it to chat.
AdMob, one of the larger mobile advertising companies, is said to be launching these “in app” advertisements very soon. It’s believed that you will be able to fast forward, or even skip the advertisements, but it still seems like more of a pain than it’s worth. How would you feel if everytime you opened an app you had to skip a few ads? The biggest problem with this idea is now that Google is buying AdMob they could really cause an annoyance to iPhone customers. They could create many annoying ads utilizing the new AdMob system which could cause iPhone users to consider “ad-less” apps on the Android OS.
