Does anyone notice TrackID is now showing advertisements? I didn't remember they were there when I used it a while ago.
I do not understand why trackID is a feature for the phone and you are being shown ads for buying it.
It just does not make sense
Edit: I contacted Xperia Care via chat and was advised to try in Safe Mode. I tested and the ads still showed. It was for a game. Unfortunately connection dropped out and I lost my chat session with the Rep

Hi bheart, welcome to the community!
Does the ad appear as part of the page or like a pop up? Are you able to post a screenshot?

Got a confirmation from a Sony Rep. The ads are intentional. This is bad Sony. You're getting paying users to see ads.
"Thank you for contacting Sony Xperia care,
The Track ID app does have built in ads. They will show when you are connected to the internet.

They aren't that intrusive most of the time but since their introduction the app doesn't behave as it used to.
The most frustrating thing is the fact that when the song information is retrieved, the app is busy loading the advertisement first and then the song.
The app is unusable in 2G and it worked so well before all this beta testing. The final builds are a joke, the app is crashing, I lost the songs etc.

I agreed, please remove ads from track id for Xperia devices! What's next, ads in music, video player? What's the point to use application made by Sony with ads if we have other similar apps? Again, please remove ads for xperia users, for example Microsoft also has ads in weather app for windows phone, but they removed it, and now this app is ad free, and android version has ads, you should do the same for track id for xperia phones. Thank you in advance.
