    Hi All,
    I am using Samsung Note for about 3 weeks. I have plenty of apps & games installed in my device now. I keep getting Ads on the Notification bar atleast once a day. Is there a way that I could find the App which is messing up with me?

    Thanks

    Installed it and it showed two Apps, in-which one app is new to me and another one, I am using it for years. Uninstalled the first one. Lets see.

    Thanks Again

    The one you've been using for years may have had an update that installed "air push"

    when you get the notification, you can push on it and briefly it will show the name of the app that is doing it up at the top .. at least mine does .. that is how i have been uninstalling mine ;)

    I use TrustGo Ad Detector and another which is Lookout Labs Ad Network Detector. The latter shows you who displays the ads for each app. I keep both because one doesn't check and detect what the other can.
