What are your thoughts about the new ad pop-ups?

WTF?!?!??
I hope it is just temporary to see how the players would react?
I'm outta here (if it's permanent)!
Meh, it doesn't bother me that much...
Sweet!  I love ads and I want more!
If they add a IAP to make it Ad-free, I'd pay it.

Ad pop-ups... (Update: devs removed)

lmao, please keep the comments civil and PG.  In case we have guest stopping by...

I personally hope they notice the dislike from their players comments from TA and here and will turn the ads off.  :-\

I don't mind ads too much. As long as its only at startup and not during actual gameplay.

As a paying customer I get annoyed by ads. I'm an adult with adult responsibilities and understand that devs can't and don't live on air alone. They need to make money, but if I'm a paying customer it's annoying. These ads are especially irritating because they're very difficult to close without accidentally triggering the ad and opening iTunes. I've been slow and careful but so far I've triggered them twice :(

*cries about the ads*

i hate that crap... Cant they make banner ads or something. Full screen pop ups are annoying as hell and take me out of the game.
Hell, ill give them a buck to get rid of that.

Im not gonna buy any flooz if they dont change them though. I got threee in a row during gameplay :(

I say we be patient and just deal with the ads for the moment.  My fingers are crossed that they will remove the ads soon and things will go back to normal.  Keep in mind, this game we don't have to check that often, so I'd advise to go play something else at the moment until this annoyance has been removed.  ;)

I'm hearing the ads have stopped (over at TA); is this true?  Who can confirm that were getting the ad pop-ups?

Sorry for the ads, I wanted to test them over the night and it was definitely too frequent.

They are now turned off, we don't want to make any money from them, but from times to times, you might see one ad per day maybe, to help some other devs. And in that case, it's not to make some money but to exchange clicks/installs so we can drive more installs to Happy Street.

We will do something special for the ones bought IAP.

The same ads like earlier or a newer ad that looks like it uses the same interface of the game itself (like I got one for Tiny Tower)?

I only get the tiny tower type ad now.
