Default games/apps putting ads in my notification bar?

Hello!

So before leaving on a trip I put lots of games to keep me not bored, but I started getting ads in my notifications. Is there an easy way to figure out which app/game is causing this? Or what would be the easiest/best way to get rid of them?

Thanks!

Addon detector, air push detector, and lookout are all apps in the play store that will detect what apps are putting the ads there.

It took a while, but I finally got rid of the pestering free apps with

AirPush Detector

AppBrain Ad Detector

Lookout Ad Network Detector
