I didn't mention it in change log, but I am testing a new ad in checklist. Well, it comes in addition to banner ads, but it's much less intrusive than those.
You'll find a new menu item, "Top apps", which will show you an "app wall", with a selection of apps from Leadbolt. (yeah !! could post my referral link !! :D)
I hope it won't disturb you much (well, that's just one more menu item after all...), but also I hope it will make you discover other interesting apps.
edit : I renamed this menu item "Top apps" to a more accurate title "Free apps"
