    Well, i was quietly playing Angry Birds at work ,with the sound off,concentrating like mad,totally absorbed(sad i know).Then suddenly up comes a loud video trailer for the new Yogi bear film,made me jump a bit and caused raised eyebrows around the room.
    I carried on playing ,and it popped up about 4 more times in 15 mins ,i clicked skip in the corner of the screen and it went back to the game ,but it wouldn`t play ,the damn birds would not launch.
    Tried this a few more times ,if i skipped it it wouldn`t play,if i watched the trailer it was ok.No biggy really ,i expect ads with a free app or game ,but never had a vid clip before.:)

    Happened to me in the bus into work. Wasn't expecting it at all - game was on silent, then the stupid clip came on full blast. Not cool. Bad enough they have the ads over the top right corner so the birds have to pass through - now this?

    Could you not just turn your net connection of during play,I would imagine that would stop the adds from showing.

    the game won't play unless you have net access for it to download the ads

    Well that's bizarre, neither my phone or my wifes will open apps that are ad funded unless there is a data network available.

    adfree is a bloody godsend....although to be fair....doing that or turning 3G off does make me feel like a bit of a cheat in a way...as they do let us have these games for FREE but just have to have ads...whereas our iphone counterparts have to pay...

    eh im sure my conscience will shut up if I play some more angry birds :D;)

    oh and kudos on the boo-boo joke....was funny THIS time of the morning lol

    its probably the case but i'm guessing you can't run adfree on a non rooted phone?!

    Yes ad free requires your phone to be rooted.
