Following on from my earlier post, I have split the Netmask Calculator into two versions; the existing version now has small, subtle adverts at the bottom of the screen. It's a shame the Android apps can't add a simple "Add Google Ads" level of permission to apps; in order to serve adverts, the existing app now needs to request "Full Internet Access".
To preserve the comfort level of installing only apps with absolutely necessary permissions, I have added a "Pro" version, suitably entitled Netmask Calculator Pro. This is priced at £0.99, €0.80 and USD$0.99.
Some apps genuinely need internet access to perform their duties - a web browser or ssh client, for example. Most (including this one) do not, and whilst I do trust virtually all Android apps to behave honourably (and both versions of the Netmask Calculator are of course completely trustworthy), the only way to address Google's broad "internet access" permissions model with the developer's incentive to create applications, is to provide two different versions of the app - one ad-supported but requiring internet access, and the other which requires no permissions at all, in exchange for the price of less than half a pint of beer.
