Japan’s second largest cellphone carrier KDDI is now displaying advertisements on Android notification bar. The ads come from ‘au one Market,’ an official app by KDDI that is an alternative to Google’s Android Market. After updating the app, user will be notified that au one Market remains resident even when they do not use the app and the notification bar will be used for information about good deals.

There is a similar service from US called ‘AirPush’ which pushes ads to notification bar, but it is apparently not welcomed by every user. I personally don’t like such service as well. Some time ago I installed a game with notification bar ads and it was quite annoying so I uninstalled it right away.

What do you think about this?
