    I downloaded another app from ITUNES MywallsHD It is all pictures you can use for wallpaper etc, but when you look at the picture once program is loaded at the very end a thing is there that says JESUS LOVES YOU THIS PRAYER IS FOR YOU Then you can actually click it and it brings you to a site with prayers on it, this has happened on Glee app to and that I paid for most I have paid for the aps in itunes some are the ones you dont have to pay for via itunes but I dont mind adverts that say click here to buy full version THATS NORMAL but ones about jesus? how do you opt out of all these its seriously annoying me sorry to be annoyed.ipad was given to me at christmas for pressent

    I just downloaded MyWalls HD and I'm completely unable to locate the message that you've described. Perhaps you can provide some detail so that I can find it?

    thanks so much, basically when you click on any image say for instance abstract and you click on an image at the very bottom a black bar pops up with JESUS LOVES YOU Etc I have just removed the app now but any app that is showing this Im just going to delete it it is very annoying or is this normal with ipad that its inhouse advertising? the jesus thing is a bit to much if you ask me or how can that ad jesus be related to that app I downloaded, if you can let me know do you get any ads on any application as I am knew to the whole Ipad thing it is an amazing product but the ad thing can annoy me and when its all about Jesus it annoys me again as if im getting it Im sure other people must be receiving ads also, seriously appreciate your help by the way

    What you describe is definitely not normal. It's the sort of thing that can happen with a hacked iPad but should not be possible with a regular iPad.

    I get an ad for an ABC (U.S. TV network) app. It just changed to an ad for Priceline.com. Actually, it's cycling through various ads but none like what you described.

    Apparently some religious organization paid for their ads to be on the versions of the app supplied in your country. There isn't much that you can do about it as it's not any different in principle from an ad on TV or radio. Your only option is to ignore it or trash the app.

    Actually I think that, although it's a bit unusual, there really isn't anything nefarious about it. See my response above to the OP.

    It was bought bran new as a gift for me in a computer shop, how would I know if it was tampered with or not? If anyone else please can download MYWALLSHD From the app store its free and look at any image that is installed with the program and see for yourself does a black bar at the end pop up with JESUS LOVES YOU THIS PRAYER IS FOR YOU (IF I TOUCH IT) IT BRINGS ME TO A THING WITH JESUS2020 With 4 headings GOD LOVES YOU Etc then at the bottom it says DID YOU PRAY THIS PRAYER I have e mailed apple tonight (Im in Ireland) but I think I may of e mailed them wrong as I couldnt type much more then 100 characters and I didnt think this would happen with it thats why Im so annoyed.

    Like I said above, your only real option is to ignore the ads.

    Have you contacted the developer about this?
  • Irish-Psychic Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Philly thanks so much I will go to sleep now as it is very late ONCE YOUR GETTING SOME ADVERT It shows it must be targeted to different countries I was just annoyed for instance say if your budhist or a different religion and on EVERY PICTURE I Look at thinking oh that looks a nice background that pop up comes up, cheers for the response and the response being so fast I knew someone would answer me I just didnt think youd all be this quick, I SERIOUSLY Love the ipad I will just download the images I need and then scrap the app its just weird a relgious one would of paid to have there advert on an app that is not even remotely related to religion but I suppose thats there view to get more people I dont think it is a jailbroken ipad it was bought bran new in a very major computer shop here in Ireland, one thing I will end on please if I bought I phone and I have a version of an app on the iPAD is it free for me to get the same app but for the iphone instead or do I need to pay I hope this makes sense, for instance I paid for the GLEE App which I sing into my ipad if I get the iphone go to itunes and see the glee app for the phone will I still have to pay for it even though I already paid for the version on the ipad NO RUSH REPLYING I Will refresh this in the morning as it is now 3am so I must be off HAPPY NEW YR TO YOU PHILLY AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE APPLE USERS (THIS IS MY FIRST APPLE BY THE WAY IM STILL VERY IMPRESSED) IM typing this on my laptop but I find it hard to resist touching the laptop screen thinking its my iPAD LOL...night everyone

    I can't imagine that the OP will get very far. The practice is certainly legal and is the only way that the developer can receive income from an app that is being given away free. This particular ad might be annoying to the OP but it's not like they're advertising child prn.

    FWIW, I get upset over the Lexus ads on the CNN app. It's not that they offend me, it's that they're exceptionally pervasive. I ignore them.
