    Do you guys get a cut of the ad revenue in tapatalk? I've noticed ads showing up in tapatalk lately and was wondering if the as revenue goes to you or tapatalk. If it only goes to tapatalk that kind of sucks because a lot of us mostly use tapatalk to access he site and I think FH should get a cut of the ad revenue.

    I think the ads (which I get too) are only in the free version. I'm guessing they aren't in the Pro version you pay for. They aren't intrusive enough for me to consider paying yet though.

    To answer your question no we do not get a dime for tap-a-talk. Actually we pay for it.

    Wow really? That's ridiculous, bordering on exploitive on the part of tapatalk. Aren't there any competitors to tapatalk that could provide a similar mobile experience??

    I don't mind the ads, I was just wondering if FH got a cut. I think it's really lame that the forums don't get a piece of the advertising, because people only use the app for the CONTENT which is the forum. TapaTalk has a sweet monetization thing going on. They are apparently getting money in several ways:

    1. From users who purchase the paid version
    2. From ads in the free version
    3. From the forums for being added to the platform (This one is actually shocking to me, I can't believe forums actually have to pay for inclusion)
