At the risk of sounding ignorant ... Anyone else ever have this happen? I downloaded a bunch of apps from the marketplace and now I keep getting these notifications with a green star, for example, "Get the #1 Game Zombie Farm Free!" Tap to find out more! (opt out at ...)" and of course the opt-out link doesn't appear on my screen.
Thanks for your help!
For future reference, the newest, most dastardly ad feature of some apps is Airpush, which sends ads to your notification bar. To find out which apps on your phone may have this "feature", you can use this: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.denper.addonsdetector&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5kZW5wZXIuYWRkb25zZGV0ZWN0b3IiXQ.., and then, if you find any that are doing this, install this: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.airpush.optoutapp&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5haXJwdXNoLm9wdG91dGFwcCJd and run it to permanently opt out.
I think this whole Airpush thing is a load of garbage, but at least they give you a way out of it.
Install AirPush Detector to find out which app is spamming you and delete it.... https://market.android.com/details?id=com.brosmike.airpushdetector&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5icm9zbWlrZS5haXJwdXNoZGV0ZWN0b3IiXQ..
