[New Release] Free Neon Pink Go Launcher EX Theme

We have good news to the people who requested a free version of our Pink Neon Go Launcher EX Theme! We have released a free version of the theme. This theme is a semi-lite version of the paid one. It has a little less icons and wallpapers but it still looks a slick and as good!

Another thing to note is that this version contains ads to support. This version is geared towards the people who requested for a free version =). We still have the paid version available in the android market which is ad free.

A Little Disappointed with Some Android Users.

Alex M - June 6, 2012 - Samsung Galaxy S2 with version 1.9.2

Money making scheme

I've had this theme for a while, and only NOW do you add Leadbolt which is a shame as I enjoyed using this theme. Recently I've been uninstalling themes that implement ads as I see it just as a way to make us buy "pro" version that miraculously has no ads!! This theme didn't need ads or Leadbolt last week, so why now?

As mentioned on my blog last month, i have integrated a sponsored ad into my "Free Blue Neon Go Launcher EX Theme". This was due to the continuing drop of sales from my paid apps/themes. After noticing that "paid apps" is not really the best way to get some monetary support from the users, i dug around to see what else is there to do. It was a challenge from my end because it is a little hard to integrate an ad system to themes because of it's lack of user interface. There is really no place for me to place banners. Luckily! I have stumbled upon on Leadbolt Ad Network. One of the way you can advertise using leadbolt is through the user's notification bar.

I was very hesitant at first in implementing an ad through the user's notification bar. But I thought to myself, this is really not any more annoying than other types of ads shown EVERYTIME an app is opened (like wall blockers or banner ads). At least for the notification ad you would only see the ad ONCE a day and can be easily ignored/cleared. So i went ahead and tried it and set the settings so the ad would show up 12 hours after the app is installed and recurs ONLY once a day.

Just like my initial thoughts. Some of my users were outraged with the implementation of the sponsored ad. I received comments like "you're a scam", "this is just a spam", "you're a terrible dev for using ads". Really people, how hard is it to support a developer through a simple ad that does not get in the way if you don't want to pay for the paid version? I hate to say this but there are a lot of android users out there who are cheap and ungrateful. This might be the reason why the Apple Store has more serious developers.

Maybe all these disgusts by the users are just because this is something new to them. Maybe one day they will turn around and accept this as just another way of placing an ad. Maybe some of these android users will soon realize that we developers will not be able to keep doing what we're doing for free (totally free) for too long. Just maybe.

But for all those who still continued to support my work, I thank you so much! It is much appreciated. You guys are the reason why I am still able to keep on going =)

Nice theme! One of the best out there. Don't mind these cheap paranoid Android ...

Nice theme! One of the best out there. Don't mind these cheap paranoid Android users who can't support even with a simple non-obtrusive ad.

It makes me smile and not lose hope when I get comments like this.

Ad program for Blue Neon Go Launcher Theme

I have been spending a lot of time with my themes lately that almost all I do now is just my full time job and my themes. All of this started as just a hobby and wanting to have a different look for my cellphone. Due to all the time I put in developing my theme, I am going to try and see if I can got some return for my invested time.

This post is to let you everybody know that I will be placing a non-intrusive ad program in my free "Blue Neon Go Launcher EX Theme". This ad does not get in the away of the user at all. I'm hoping for everybody's support and understanding.

As always, Thank you all for your continuing support!
