Could you change policy of ads please, my SOLUTION

Don't get me wrong, I understand that make sololearn was a huge amount of work and developers don't live from upvotes and air, but ads after every chellenge is awful, I'm able to do something about 70 chellenges per hour, and 70 ads per hour is too much, please make it less, maybe one ads per 5 chellenges. There is other ways to make money, for example Spotify give oppourtunity to use app with no ads for 30 minutes after watching sponsored video, maybe it will be a good idea? Another one, maybe you should do a section with a jobs offers? I am thinking about something like this: a employer could give one for an example 1$, we have a lot of programmers here, and not every one have a job, but SL can help them not only with learning but also with earning. Thats my ideas how to reduce ads and also keep earning on app. I am just user, and want to use sololearn free as in past, I see that some users go away about your new ads privacy, pls take this seriously, @sololearn ? #sololearn Best regards, your user

At the end of the challenge, if you press the back button on your phone as soon as the ad starts to load, you go straight to the results screen without having to wait for the skip ad option

David Britanico I know, but I also remember what happend to app "programming hub" it was awesome, it wins the award of best free app on google play, then they add ads and after that make 4/5 of lessons paid (no free version with ads). Sololearn had win also the same award... They adding ads.... And we dont know what the next step will be...

Like other apps they could make two versions, one without ads and another one free but with ads.

I had the same problems with the add on every end of each challenge. That's too much.

Ava 🐈 I know but even that is not the solution...

Jakub Gołębiowski but you can't compare spotify to SoloLearn. the amount of people using spotify is far greater than the people who use SoloLearn and play challenges. so 1 ad per challenge is actually nothing compared to 1 ad per 3 songs for spotify. there's no getting rid of ads

You made a good point, I hope they would solve it, maybe a paid version without adds would be a good idea

we all hate ads. they're annoying and intrusive and we are all better off without them. but... SoloLearn offers hundreds of hand-made lessons and hosts huge servers, providing over 7 million users with a friendly coding community. it also allows you to code in 11 different languages, all interpreters and compilers hosted on their servers. the app gets regular updates and is kept safe by moderators, and all this is regulated by the team who put ads up on this app. furthermore, keeping an app on Google Play and the Apple Play Store costs money. our sense of how much things cost is non-existent, unless we've had to deal with it before. we're all used to having this fantastic app offering free coding tips and lessons without any ads or paid content, but their money doesn't grow on trees. maybe it's time we make their effort worth it and support them as well, right? your solutions are not realistic and 1 ad per challenge is nothing. I understand your POV but there's really nothing we can complain about.

🐙evil octopus I am not saying that ads are bad thing, but look around for example on spotify: 3 songs = 1 ad, in my opinion 1 ad per chellenge is too much, 1 chellenge ~60sec, 1 song ~ 3min; 9 min to 1min, I'm know that sololearn have less users, but is a bit too much... btw anybody knows when they add a paid version?

You should send your idea to [email protected] and tell them about it.

🐙evil octopus I know, it was only for example, I dont want to do as same system of ads, but to do something that give sololearn money, and also dont give us storms of ads

Tamas Adrian I don't think that they would make a antibots system, thats to much work for app on android, when you have a mousepointer like in webbrowser on pc you could read the position, which most of antirobots captcha do, when you don't have a mouse pointer like on android it will be very hard. Not impossible, but hard, so don't worry, they won't to lose money on server and have something from their hard work 😉😉😉

Sopharin Khem we all have this issue, thats why I write about it and send Them feedback 😉
