    Why am I NOW getting pop-up advertisements on my device?

    all of a sudden (within past 24 hours) I am looking at ads for apps every time I open up DJO Contacts or Calendar? How did this happen? More important, how do I turn it OFF? When I am looking up the phone number of a client, the very last thing I want to observe is an advertisement!

    Hi John,

    You can disable the ads by following these steps:
    1. Open DejaOffice
    2. Go to Settings then General Settings
    3. Uncheck Enable Advertising

    I hope this helps.

    I noticed these ads too.

    One question: WHY is there even the POSSIBILITY in this app of advertising at people who've paid $39.95 for CompanionLink in the first place? Isn't the whole idea of paying for something in this modern mobile app world so that you don't get advertisements? This setting should never get turned on if you've paid for a product (or necessary related product used by said product).

    Hi Tim,

    I will respectfully refer you to this thread. I think it responsibly summarizes things very well. I am pretty confident you are aware how to turn off the Ads. Perhaps this will assist you understanding things a little better.

    How about leaving the advertising as standard in the DejaOffice app and removing them automatically when synced with CompanionLink?

    The adware process you implemented is a very bad idea, poorly implemented and you're
    starting to see the backlash from it. Also check out the feedback
    on the Android Market etc.

    Most of us have not only paid for CompanionLink but we've also
    helped (generally in many positive ways) with the development feedback and
    enduring the growing pains of DJO.

    If you need to generate additional revenue, then find some other ways to
    do it with other PC Apps or increasing prices on new users on other platforms
    other new users down the road.
    Just come up with a better pricing and marketing strategy... ads are not it.

    You should be thankful for starting to win over some customers
    it's not a good thing to leave them with the feeling they've been betrayed.

    It's too bad... we were just starting to send new customers your way.
