I propose a mark or symbol for apps that are ad-supported.

Currently the store does not support paid apps for sure. Instead there is a way to support the developer (by flattr). I do know the purpose of advertising, but don't think it is used well in apps. I think the user should be warned that the app will show advertising before downloading.

Please vote up is You agree and want to see a sign below the app (like the Android logo).

I was not even aware that some applications in the store contain internal advertising!!

If that is the case then indeed it sure needs to be marked with extra-bold and visible way in the store itself so that people can avoid those apps.

There are some android apps with advertings. Trustworthy developers tell it in the description. I voted for marking ad-supported software.
