Ads in I app.

The latest app update that claimed "bug fixes" has added an advertisement banner. This banner seems to be hyper sensitive to touch and causes several undesired web browsing instances per session.
This "feature" has pushed me dangerously close to deleting the app.

Re: Ads in I app.

One more, the app shows pictures in preview which seem to be picked at random and without relevant connection to the thread.
I do definitely prefer the older app without these pictures.
Saves bandwidth as well.

That one is easy. Turn off the picture preview in settings.

I'm going to attempt to revert to an older version of the app

Re: Ads in I app.

If Chevrolet pays for every click, somebody has made a good bit of money off of my app usage in the last week. I seem to bring the ad up every time I'm in the app.

Re: Ads in I app.

I'd rather pay $2 dollars for the app and make it ad free.......this Chevrolet ad is driving me nuts. The wort part is that when I updated the app, the only thing the tracker said was "bug fixes". Had it said bug fixes and advertisements I wouldn't have clicked "update".
