I subscribe to this - while I understand developers are looking for 
revenue streams I really like
how current native Sailfish OS apps are pretty much add free (for one 
reason or another).
Just take a look how reckless add usage ruins application usability on 
I'm fine with donations, paid/premium versions, etc. but please no adds! :)

>         publishers/developers and other ad networks, etc. to fetch ads
>         for mobile sites or mobile applications. The mobile device /
>         server makes a HTTP request to Vserv Marketplace server with
>         the required parameters and in response receives the ad in
>         JSON format. This single API integration gives you the
>         flexibility to fetch banner/ full screen / rich media ads.
>     Available implementation is in pre-beta phase - quite majority of
>     functionality works but there is still room for improvement.
