For those wishing to deactivate adverts in the LEO app we provide an ad-free version for EUR7.49/year. The ad-free version runs on all devices on which you are signed in to the iTunes & App store with the same Apple ID. The subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the subscription period. You can manage your subscription in your iTunes Account Settings. 

If you are still seeing adverts and your subscription is still valid, please tap the cog icon in your app and go to Settings. Tap "Ad-free version" and "Restore subscription". This should deactivate all ads.
