    I don't think I'll be charging for the app so I like the idea of permission based ads.

            If it was based on usergroup permissions then you could sell the group permissions through a subscription at the proper website and not have to give apple any money. If it's an in-app purchase then they take 30%

              If I wanted this then I would want it permission based.

                I'm with Steve here... already have both Lite (with ads) and Pro (no ads) submitted and already live on the app store. Having an in-app purchase for those who already got the Lite version to Pro would be great.

                  I'm all for a permissions based system.

                    this solution is working only for iPhone. You can't do anything with android

                        That's not entirely true. I know how to do this for Android (I had to do it to change my Application icon to a much higher resolution).

                        If you guys are okay with us doing this with the apk's, I can try to get a tutorial posted in these forums? Unless you are mere days away from providing an official solution.

                          Definitely a usergroup permission based system. This way I can give my subscribers access to the add-free app.

                            definitely a In-App purchase or Separate App as user group permissions means they would have to purchase from my site meaning would have to have my own merchant account or paypal account and I don't have a merchant account and refuse to use Paypal...... So I prefer that Paypal/Google handle all the payments...
