|Getjar Notification - How To Get Rid Of It?||Tim Pendry||8/12/12 6:11 AM|
In the last week or so, quite suddently, I have got persistent and intrusive screen notifications from GetJar which insistently tell me that I am not supported by it and should contact them for 'support'. I have absolutely no interest in GetJar but can find no way of eliminating this intrusion which is becoming irritating enough to question the value and reliability of android if it is just going to be a medium for unwanted advertisements on my main screen (not just one but several, usually during App updates). Perhaps it is an intrusion from an App but I can find no way to define the App and remove it.
Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the GetJar notification or, at the least, identify which App is so stupid as to do this to me so that I can remove it. If it is now intrinsic to Google Play, I suggest Google Play reconsider any policy of promoting this intrusive organisation in which some of us will have no interest.

GetJar is an alternative app store.
Hard to guess but could it be that you tried to install a theme that uses Getjar payment?
I would check the appstore from a computer, look at my apps and see if you notice anything with getjar in the name.

Yes, I know what it is. I have checked my apps and there is nothing with getjar in the name - it is an intrusive 'ad' that seems to come during update downloading but that may be 'false flag'. If there was anything even remotely identifiable with getjar I would have wiped it by now. It is not functionally critical but it is so irritating that I have irrationally decided that Android is no longer something I am going to invest time in ... my instinct tells me that if it allows this to happen, then it is dodgy at a deeper level. Also I don't do payments through android and it popped out of the blue when I was reducing, not adding Apps.
