    Title says it all. This ad blocker doesn't require root and if you decide to pay for it, it'll even block ads in other apps.

    I love how it has a running count of all the data I've saved.

    Unfortunately this ad blocker does block video ads in other apps period. At least for me it doesn't.

    Quite frankly without root, ad blockers can only block a certain amount or certain types of ads, and NOT everything. Thing is, Google(Alphabet Inc.) who makes Android, are an ad company, that's how they make most of their...$$$ :thumbsupdroid:

    I've actually found a good way to block ads in apps. It's called no root firewall. Takes some manual configuration though. Basically you need to figure out what servers the game needs and what the ad servers are. If you click the down arrow beside an address it'll list other ways to create the filter address wise. So far works in Allen and zombie shooter free. And sas 4. In alien and zombie shooter just block all net access. In sas 4 just allow the servers with ip addresses and block the rest. Works like a charm.

    I usually get rid of ads buy purchasing their premium no-ad version/key. Nothing wrong dropping a few dollar to help the developer of your favorite apps.

    Or FF and install an ad-blocker add-on for web surfing.

    I just downloaded it and tried it. A very cool little app. I'm gonna have fun with this one. Just like a proxy server I run in my browser on my PC.

    Thanks for the heads-up!!!...

    I am using adguard premium, it blocks ads from many apps but not from youtube. I used Adclear, for a few days. It blocked YouTube ads but it switches off automatically. Is adguard blocking YouTube ads for anyone?

    With Noroot Firewall you can allow or deny each individual web address access for each app.

    A very cool little app that I'm having a blast with!

    Good job developers!!!...
