Nonsense. I have a lot of paid apps which still overflow with ads and tracking. The culprit is human greed, the general lowering of inhibitions and the increasing ease of "monetizing" users suckers.

I'm old enough to have seen the birth, rise and death of the freeware and shareware system: At that time developers were still proud of their handiwork, now it's mostly about making a quick & easy buck.
