Ad Blocker

    Ad services often serve up different ads, based on the region the user is in. I may think an ad is blocked because it might not appear on my phones, or the phones of most of my testers. But say someone in a region I have no other testers, is getting them, and not letting me know, then I can't take care of them. I would assume I got them all, and move out.

    Blocks are specific to the ad provider, not specifically per app. Also some apps use a framework (from admob i think) that roundrobins the ads. If the app can't get an ad from provider A, it tries provider B, then C and so on. See AdWhirl.

    All in all, its coming along nicely. I added a diagnostic's feature that gives me region specific information that can be reported. I have changed the start/stop buttons to a single toggle button, added on boot and shaved off about 20% of the app's size (compared to what 0.0.6 last night, not 0.0.5).

    Please keep up the reports, thanks guys!

    My 0.0.5 version has "expired". Until the next version, can you remove the time-bomb ?

    Expiration date is to keep bug reports on outdated versions from coming in. It will be removed on version 1.0.0.

    I don't have a date for my next release, quite busy now a days.

    Oh, I completely understand the need for that. Sure can't blame you !

    If I remove the app and re-install, is it a "number of days" timer or does it turn off after a set date ? I don't recall the exact wording at the moment.

    Is the new version coming soon? Thanks for all the effort!

    BTW, a feature suggestion: have a central place for updating the ad servers, plus have a way for the user to specify his custom servers, then merge both and update hosts file.

    No new betas right now, life is busy.

    This app doesn't use the host file, for a number of reasons.
