AirPush Ads and Android

I found and installed what appeared to be a really cool app for my Motorola Atrix cell phone. It's in the Google Play store (formerly know as the Android Market.) The name of the application is Retro Phone.
DO NOT download and install it. As cool as an old fashioned rotary dial is for your modern cellular phone, the developer has elected to crap up the app with AirPush. That generates random advertisements in your Android notification bar, even when the app isn't running.

The developer also felt it was necessary to dump a bunch of browser shortcuts on the Android home screen. Shame on you, Miracle Software, LLC. You suck!

Here's a link to my review of Retro Phone.

P.S. I'm surprised Appbrain Ad Detector failed to find AirPush in this app. All the other ad detector apps flagged it. I prefer Addons Detector anyway. Here's a link to my review of Addons Detector.
