The free version isn't ad supported. They still have in-app purchases.
Maybe they'll wait a little more so this news isn't overshadowed by that presumable fact.
This sounds a lot like a PR stunt to me.
Either to make a point and or to get popular, release a new paid app and with more attention comes more revenue.
A sh*tty paying share of more customers still means more revenue.
Absolutely agree about the need for more payment options.
They definitely went a step backwards here, as I try to keep the amount of companies who know my online use CC to a minimum. Glassed Silver:ios
