For years I've been traveling mostly with planes. Until recently, I have not figured out how many damn ads mobile games have. It has been found that troubleshooting on the ground provides more than just ad-free playtime.
Call me blissfully naïve if you like, but for the longest time I just thought my favorite mobile games had no the same problem with ads everywhere that plagued most mobile games. It turned out that this was not the case.
The case was that I used a game console or a PC to play at home. When I was traveling for work, I played games on the plane on my iPhone. If you're on the plane, your phone is in airplane mode, and if you're in airplane mode, there's probably no network access that will allow you to view and load the ads, so the app will not bother you.
] After a recent trip, I showed my family a jigsaw puzzle that I really enjoyed, and was surprised that the elaborate puzzle full-screen ad (for the most stupid cartoon-style sims) contained Knockoff I've ever seen) to play after each puzzle.
The solution? Turn on the phone in airplane mode and enjoy not only an ad-free gaming experience, but also a nice break from the pings, dings and constant notifications that permeate modern life.
