Gajop, the ad is displayed on the app itself. Not on the forum.
Fact, posting on the forum via website/mobile browser is nowhere near as convenient as using a native app for it.
There is also forumrunner. Native apps add a LOT of features, like push notifications on subscribed topics, and a giant list of other things.
