    Not sure about those particular apps however i know most apps are if you buy the full version they will take away the ads, but than again some apps are what they call "ad supported" therefor you wouldnt be able to get rid of them.

    are also referring to the ads you hear when listening to pandora? that's just how pandora works and how you can listen to it for free.

    i personally don't see what the big deal with ads is. i usually don't even notice them. i couldn't even tell you what apps i have that i know for sure have ads. they're never in my way.

    How to remove ads from Pandora.com

    As of Jan 2010, I was able to prevent / remove / hide / block ads advertisements by doing the following (when viewing Pandora.com from the browser on WinXP):

    Edit HOSTS file at c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    Add entries to bottom of the file:

    127.0.0.1(press TAB key)2mdn.net
    127.0.0.1(press TAB key)ad.doubleclick.net

    Save the file and wait for Pandora.com to cycle the current ad.

    Those "tatas"

    If there were more "tatas" and the like, I wouldn't mind.

    One that REALLY annoyed me, a free FTP app, had a little scrollbar at the bottom trying to convert me to the author's particular flavor of religion - a definite no-no in my book. That one lasted about a day or two, then adios, mofo.

    $36/year for the Pandroa ONE package which removes ads. It also adds higher quality audio. Includes a desktop application.
    Also allows you to exceed the 40 hr limit per month that free users are restricted to.
    http://www.pandora.com/pandora_one?ref=subscribeLink

    Don't want to pay the $36? Quit yer whining then. ;)
