    Are you sure that's the stock photo app? Doesn't look like what I've got, and I don't just mean the ad.

    its close, but def different than the stock pix app. On the OP's ss, where it says "Ffu" if you go into one of your albums, it would say "Camera Roll"

    Even if you open up the camera, on the top it would say XXX of XXX, meaning how many pictures of what picture your viewing.

    The OP needs to re-check what app they're actually look at

    There are no ads in my 'stock photo app' so I don't know what to tell you.

    I'm guessing your device is jailbroken?

    Depending on what you've installed, yes. Exactly why Apple is against jailbreaking and breaking that sandbox they've created.

    The thought as I was posting of it being a JB issue did cross my mind after I hit the reply button.

    Maybe delete the app and re-dwld it. But if the reboot chased the ad away for now then maybe your in the clear, so to speak.

    Kill out any apps with ads in the multi tasking bar and it'll go away. Or install an ad blocker. Common with iAds on jb'd devices.

    Did the ad blocker stop it from re-appearing?
    I noticed the same thing happened to my Camera Roll today!

    Apple is against jailbreaking because they want control over their customers and jailbreaking frees people of that control

    I think the most likely solution to your problem is to to uninstall the "Mail More Photos" package in Cydia.

    stock photo app has ads?!?!?!-image.png
