One user who received such a notification on his device, took to Google Play and left a one star review, slamming the move.
Surprisingly, the developer of the app, has left a reply to the review, which says that a paid version of ES File Explorer is in the works.
We are about to launch a paid version. Our upcoming paid version will (have) no ads, and can be removed homepage , so stay tuned !
Will you pay for an app to remove bloatware ads? I don’t mind paying a one time fee to remove banner ads or to unlock pro features (long time Solid Explorer user here), but I certainly won’t throw money to remove full screen ads or notifications, which kind of forces (read annoys) the user, driving them to pay to get rid of the ads.
