While shopping, an idle thought struck me so I opened your app to check
something. First, I was subjected without warning to an embarrassingly loud
auto-play video ad for cheerios. Then I was taken to a poorly made and
absolutely useless "featured video page. I immediately uninstalled.

In the pas i was able to click the familiar yellow logo on my screen and
immediately begin searching for the answer to whatever has me curious at
that moment. Now it takes an annoying amount of time and clicks to reach
the content that people actually want, and I have to be subjected to the
worst form of internet advertising along the way.

Static ads I do not mind, I am under no illusions as to the cost running
a service like the one you provide. But autoplay, max-volume video ads are
the worst thing to happen to the internet since spam emails. Adds like
those are what drive people to use add blockers and avoid webpages. Surely
using ad add service that doesn't annoy the living daylights out of your
customers and drive them away is a better choice?

I have been using IMBD for over 15 years. One video add is all it took to
drive me away.

I have to agree. The previous format although not perfect was almost there. It was simple and easy to use. Now I am seriously considering removing it from my device.
