I've been using AirPush Detector for quite some time so I can check new apps when I install them. I also use a custom host file (AdAway, which uses the same custom host file that Ive been using on my PC for many years) to block advertisements and unwanted nasties in the browser. My question though is does the custom host file alone stop the ads from appearing in the notification area?

Knock on wood, I've not had any of these ads appear up there, but I have found quite a few apps that used AirPush. Perhaps I caught them quick enough so that they didn't have time to push the ads.

Edit: Would also like to add that I have a concern with AirPush Detector. Shouldn't this app be updated frequently so it can detect new ads? It hasn't been updated since last November.
