Without a whitelist option in the sharesheet this app is is going to waste a lot of your time manually typing in domains etc. Pretty basic requirement for an ad blocker to be able to easily disable for certain sites.
...before I’ve used it for 5 minutes. Stop that
I can whitelist ads, but I can't whitelist images or annoyances, some sites such as BBC iPlayer need cookie prompts to work, while others need images, but I don't want to disable them for all sites, so let us whitelist annoyances and images.
Update to original review - I was unable to whitelist sites which meant some would not open. Others behaved strangely and had to be closed and reopened. When I tried to open the app to customise the settings it continually jumped in to a set-up video even though the app was already running. I have now removed this app from my iPad. Would not recommend.
Original review - So far the app works well at removing adds. I often have to zoom into text on websites to read it and the ads then cover what I am trying to see. With this blocker I don’t have this problem.
I don’t rate it as 5* as I cannot get the whitelisting to work. I wanted to allow ads for local newspapers to support them. The app seems to be working when I change the whitelist settings and save them but the ads still don’t come back.
Setting enabled in Safari, Adblock says it isn’t, waste of my time.
XR iOS 12.4.1
This app does not work. Devs get it sorted right now it’s clutter in the App Store.
I was hoping for some FB smashing, but no such luck. Only seems to work in Safari... which nobody uses. Waste of £6 :(
Read the reviews and was impressed. Downloaded the app and can’t open it. Nowhere to troubleshoot issues (‘site unavailable) which would help me resolve the problem of not opening. So disappointed.
Was working brilliantly but now ads on google and banner ads are back.
Not sure if that down to the app not working or ads finding a way around ad blockers.
I had fix this issue by turning ad blocking on and off again but less that 24 hours later ads are back and turning it on and off again won’t fix it.
Worked fanstastic for 7 days then it stopped blocking the ads.
This app does not block adds on Sound hound. Don’t bother with it.
Does not block youtube ads normally
Excellent. Couldn’t be more pleased. No longer do I need to watch a stupid 25 second T-Series or any other type of trash advert while streaming films watching Pokemon or family guy or anything for that matter. I take my hat off to the developers. Excellent!
This ad blocker is simply the best and I've only had it activated for 2 minutes. It's simple, it's accessible to VoiceOver users and it puts the power back in your hands in terms of what content is shown on websites. My 2 most favourite features are the whitelist and the ability to block redirection scripts. I will most definitely be downloading this app on my other devices.
An ad blocker that works. Thanks
Adblock works for me, glad that I downloaded it.
