Default Massive ads suddenly in mobile app

I noticed that the Biplane Forum app updated last night, and suddenly I have big ads (bigger than the thread annunciators) sprinkled everywhere. The previous version had no ads at all.

Is there a paid version of the app that will lose the ads? I'm already a paid member of the forum, but I realize that the app is probably outsourced.

The new ads make the mobile app much less appealing to use.

Update: I checked back just now to take a screenshot, and see that they're gone. Never mind!

Are you on android or ioS? And it is the branded app, correct? Just need to find out all I can before I start asking tech questions to help you.

Once I log in on iPhone I lose ads. If I do not login then I have large amount of ads.

Yes, starn11gy, it does work that way. More ads for those that do not log in. So, don't log out and it those extra ads will not show.

Thanks for that information. I'm thinking it may be something Taptalk updated as the priority app is built on that base. I do have a question into the Tech guys to see if they've done anything or not. And I have let them know it is not liked.

Guys, the app had to be updated or it would be deleted. So, the tech team is working to correct the issues you are seeing at this time. It may take a day or two more.

Please put your comments here, and I'll be checking back.

It's fine for me now. I had two updates in quick succession, and as of the second update, the ads are gone once I'm logged in. Thanks for keeping on top of it, Angie. I'm using Android, and yes, the branded app.

Are they gone now? I need to make sure the techs are getting every forum they are working on to have supporters not have the ads.

I just noticed I lost my biplane app on my android phone! I saw the blank space earlier this week but didn't realize it was that app until just now. So can't say until I reload the app.
