And that worries me...the fact that the ads might end up being
too obtrusive and turn people away....

LOL :-) But...would I be able to BUY anything at the dollar
store? Or would that involve another period of waiting long
enough? :-)

Sounds like my revised initial opinion (revised in that I had
been thinking ads/$2 donation until about 30 minutes ago) is
now confirmed.

I'll just release it as a free app tomorrow.

Oh, one more question, and an RTFM with a pointer to the FM
is what I'm looking for here: I want to add an initial
screen that only runs the first time (like the user agreement
I see on most apps) that basically states that the photos in
the app are all copyrighted by me. Where would I find the docs
on how to do this?
