This morning I was checking my email in the official Gmail app (to be honest, I accidentally hit it and decided to organize a bit) and I noticed an unknown message that looked slightly different: an ad. I knew Google was showing ads in their Gmail web app (technically it’s a website, but people insist on using the term “web app”, because it can do quite a lot more than an old fashion website) and I’m fine with that. Showing an ad in a mobile app is fine too, but I don’t like how they put it there. It looks like an email message apart from the timestamp that is replaced with an “i” for information about the ads and the lack of a select box.
Like I said, I’ve never seen them and maybe they’re only shown in the Promotions-tab, in which case damage isn’t that bad. I don’t use that tab that often anyway.
