Why am I seeing ads in the app? How can I remove them?

We have decided to make the app ad-supported so that we can continue to develop and support the app and its users. The app displays a non-intrusive banner ad at the the bottom of the main screen. If you do not wish to see the ads in the app, you can remove them by opening the settings and then turning on the option to “Remove ads”. After that, restart the app and it will not display ads any more.
