    I have started getting ads at the top of my screen on my phone and tablet. Anyone know how to stop them? I understand having ads in free apps but this is bs.

    I would recommend installing Addons Detector which will show you the apps that are pushing the ads to your phone. Uninstall those apps and then go to the Play Store and give the developers a low rating. Let them know that you don't appreciate the intrusion.

    EDIT: Ninja'd by the frog. ;)
