Banner Ads on Android App after update

Is anyone else getting banner ads after the Android app update today? It asked for permission for my location which I denied but I am seeing ads after about every 3 or 4th thread. Beyond annoying and makes the app pretty much useless.

Unfortunately, Tapatalk now has ads.

We cannot block them.

I am not using Tapatalk. I'm using the iRV2 app. It's as bad as Facebook.

I asked the same thing.

Big ads that if you touch any area while trying to scroll will pop open and several inappropriate ads as well. The iRV2 app is pretty much one big ad now. Trying to read one 3 post thread I had 6 different ads pop-up.

Tapatalk is our app provider ,not to be confused with the Tapatalk app . They do run occasional ads and there's nothing we can do about it unfortunately.

I use the Apple app and get a Chevy ad " occasionally ".
Here's the settings page from that app. I've turned off the " ads debug mode ". I'm not sure if that will help you and I also cleared the cache as well as deleting the app and reinstalling it. I use the app well over 90% of the time I'm here and I'm logged on for many hours a day. I hope this helps.

I have tried the app, and found it to be a piece of dung. I just use the Chrome browser and the ad block does a decent job of keeping things under control.

I've been reading posts on the app for the past several months, but I'm now uninstalling due to the frequent ads.

Tapatalk is pushing out updates and my app was updated last night.

Now I see more and larger ads.

There seems to be fewer ads when logged into the app, but it's hard to tell.

You might try the Mobile View of the full site to see it that works better for you.

I'll ask our programmer if anything can be done about the ads.

I can bear the small adds I currently see but the examples displayed are 5 times larger and some of them are insulting. This website should be embarrassed to be associated with those adds. Does irv2 have any say in what type of adds can be posted?

Agree! Screen real estate is precious on a phone. Taking up half of it with ads is unexceptable!

Thanks for your input - we are aware of the issue and will reach out to the app maker about this.


In the meantime, if the app is unusable you might try the mobile view of the site. if you navigate to the site on a full browser it should auto load for a small screen. No download needed
