Apple releases iAd Gallery app

Apple has released a new app designed specifically for displaying ads from the company’s iAd network. Described as a “celebration of advertising,” iAd Gallery allows users to view ads by searching or browsing by advertiser, category or ad feature. Users can also learn more about the featured ads and the advertising agencies that developed them and add their favorite ads to a “Loved” section for quick access. iAd Gallery is available from the U.S. App Store as a free download.

Seems like a waste of resources to me, but then again I’m sure they have plenty to waste

iDon’t Love Ads

I wonder, does Apple get credit for ads served through this app?

It’s genius and sad all at the same time, because it looks like it’s basically a market survey packaged as a free app from Apple, which means quite a few people will take the bait.

I have a DVR so I can skip the ads, why would I want this?

I would imagine the folks designing the ads might be interested in this, as it would be an easy way to see how others are doing ads as well. 

Beyond that, I have no interest.  I usually do everything in my power to AVOID ads. Why would i want an application that all it does is to serve ads?  Like #7, I also have a DVR so I can skip the commercials.  And yes, I also employ ad-blocking on the internet as well.  Bad enough we get so bombarded with advertisements everywhere we turn to look!  On the street corner (I wonder how they are paying those guys to stand out there and hold those stupid signs), on the side of the buses and trains, in the magazines, in the newspaper, on the radio, on TV, and now even on our friggan cell phones!  What next?  The lady walking her dog with the dog sporting an ad?
