Anyone with an Apple ID can now create iAds


If you’re reading this, you probably have an Apple ID. And that means you can now open an account with iAd Workbench. You, too, can be a digital Mad Man! Before today, you had to be a registered mobile app developer to take advantage of Apple’s iAds. By lowering the barrier to entry, Apple falls more in line with the likes of Facebook and more recently Twitter in competing for advertising dollars. Only question now is what do you have to sell?

Anyone with an Apple ID can now create iAds


God, I hope this isn't the beginning of selling user information like Google and Facebook. I know that Apple "makes their money" off devices rather than information but who knows, they could get greedy?

Where did you hear that Google is selling your information? Sure they might keep every single record they have of you until the end of time for their own analysis, but they're not selling information

I think he means they are compiling your information with others and selling the metrics. Either that or the targeted adverts based on some email you sent your mother-in-law.

I don't mind ads on "free" apps as long as there is a way to pay an in-app fee and remove them. I think of it as a way to test-drive an app. It has saved me from wasting money on more than one app.
