Seriously, I have money. I want to give you money. Let me pay you to stop these stupid, intrusive, ads.

Really, it's getting ridiculous now. Why are ignoring another Revenue stream? Clearly there are MANY of us that would pay to stop seeing that crap and haVing it ruin the app experience.

I'm most annoyed by that fact that this had been an issue customers have complained about since day one and had never been addressed.

Eddie,
If you would pay for the ads to vanish then why not just do it for free?
I do not know what browser you are using, but for the majority of them it is usually possible to get AdBlocker as an add-on....this will make pretty much all of them vanish!

This is how the front page (for example) looks to me right now:



What ads?

If you want to show me another page as how it looks to you, I can show you that one from my view too.

I agree totally. The adds in the iPhone app spoil it. I would also happily pay to remove them.

If imdb wont take our money... why not simply use an adblocker? For example: Weblock (http://www.weblockapp.com/) It blocks ads from showing up in the imdb app and just about every other app. Note: it only works if you are browsing from wifi.... unfortunately you'll still get ads when using cell data... but that's still an improvement.
