T-Mobile Android App Displaying Ads As Notifications
30/03/2012 | Nicholas Griffin
I am most probably right in saying that nobody enjoys advertisements, but it is just one of thoose things we have to put up with in modern day life in order to keep services we use cheaper or even free, but when they invade your personal life it’s completely different.
And that is exactly what T-Mobile’s new ‘My Account’ application is doping. With huge number of customers stating that the carrier has incorporated adverts into the notification screen of Android phones. The app in question would normally just allow customers to manage and keep track of their account, but it seems the carrier is now using it as a way of make a few extra pounds every now and again.
As you can expect T-Mobile’s support forums are already awash with tons of customers complaining, the simple fact that the app cannot be uninstalled, and adverts are mandatory makes a few people quite angry.
What do you think? Have you been receiving ads as notifications?
