Hi Michael,
first of all our apologies for any misunderstanding.

The alpha version we sent by mail hadn't ads, we added them just
before releasing the app on Google Play Store.

We understand your concern, so in the meanwhile we are deactivating
the ads for the app waiting for your final decision.
We're available to find the best solution with you, that could be
change the name, make different versions or anything this list will

Regards (and sorry again),
