    I have a slightly different opinion about the ads. I fully understand and support that you want to make some well deserved money for this great app. On the other hand I have donated very early in the project to support the development. But I still have to see the ads and the please donate encouragements. This is slightly annoying to be frank.

    I wish there would be a away to disable these (for instance with a code one can enter). I'd gladly donate again just to not have to see ads.

    Just my 2c.

    ok the first 1.0.60 should hit the app catalog today,

    the first beta(since the app cat release) 1.0.61 is already out and includes a battery saving feature when the GPS is not currently locked on, the accuracy, and updates are eased up on, this may also help performance when dragging the map.

    ads are definately not a big deal. you've given us such a great app. It's a shame palm didn't show the same initiative.

    In the beta version there are no ads, only a banner for donations. Also, street view made my phone reboot and the map was sent to the Arctic Ocean when I went into Card View and back into BFGMaps.

    Also can you add a link to this thread in the settings (or help) scene?

    These all sound like the same unfixable bugs that existed before :-(
    jumping to arctic is a bug in the webview for webos, and the crashing in streetview well I can't really say it's a bug per se, but 9 times out of 10 this happens if you are overclocking and try streetview :-(

    Congrats to you, KernelSandirs on arriving in the official app catalog! Looks like you've got a huge number of downloaders and reviews already at 5 stars! You have made a great app!

    I am hoping to add some way of removing ads for those of you that donated soon(maybe even an added bonus feature) :-)

    I was going to ask that, but I think the only way is to release a pay version of bfg. My opinion on the matter is palm/hp should just buy your app outright from you and replace the crippled app they gave us with yours. Regardless what happens, what would you suggest as a proper donation for your excellent work?

    Adblock patch takes care of the ads. i assume the developer here still gets paid for them. would be nice if the donate screen would disappear when we donate. very happy when it turned up in the App catalog. Now i can remember what my house looked like before we had all that work done.

    I will gladly donate whatever I have to to be able to view the map in full screen again without the blue ad/donate bar.

    How do you figure I would get paid if you block them :-)
    Listen guys I hate ads, I really do, for me to eat.. they are, unfortunately a necessary evil in this case, as Google is going to charge me $20,000/yr to license the API in order to sell the app. That said I hope to put in place some way to remove the ads for those that donated. (even the version I run has the ads) :-(

    How do I change WebOS so that map requests open BFG and not Google maps?
    Pilot 5K->Palm IIIc->Tungsten T/T2->Treo 650/680 -> Pre+ (1.4.5 & Uberkernel)

    the only thing I would add is the ability to save the zoom level. I hate the fact that I have to zoom in everytime I open the app.

    I was gonna say Shadavis08 you already donated :-)

    I am trying to look out for you guys, I said hold your Pitchforks and torches for a bit

    Anyway 1.0.62 Beta in the Help screen you should find an email entry field if you donated it should remove the ads. (technically if all goes well) :-)

    There is still a small issue with the placement of the icons on the map after the ads are gone but I will fix that before I push the app catalog version. this weekend

    if you donate today it may take me a little while(read "a few hours") to add it to the database so please be patient, everyone that donated up until today has been added so it should work.
