How can ads be blocked in Safari?
Download content blokker form the app store, then turn it on under settings / safari
Going to see which ones are free and give them a go. Not sure I'm ready to start buying things before I see how good they are.
Anyone have any input on which ones perform better?
Freedom is a decent ad blocker and its free. Last I saw on Twitter, he was still waiting for approval from the store.
get crystal, its free "for a short time", works fine, dev cares. same for freedom whenever it appears
Any performance issues related to these blockers?
none. safari is definitely snappier (really) with all the crap blocked
1. Download this https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1022177308
2. Go to settings > Safari > Content Blockers > Enable Crystal.
So many blockers... Still trying to see what's the best to install only one
None thus far.
It says "installs directly into safari".
I know this content blocking is new - but, is the "installing into" a specific app a first time thing in iOS 9?
I'm trying to think of another instance in which this'd be necessary and cannot.
Anyone have experience removing ad blockers from iPhone? Delete app&app data like any other? No harm done?
Correct. Delete as you would any other app.
It's an App you download from the Appstore. It's install method is similar to how 3rd party keyboards work.
Thanks! That's what I was thinking - that and those stupid emoji apps into the keyboard.
Thanks for the info.
Thanks! I'm trying Purify. Working great so far. But not blocking my favorite Apple sites, including this one. I'm not seeing a hit on performance so far.
Purify isn't blocking this site because you don't want it to, or because it isn't working correctly?
I am blocking the hell out of this site in regards to ads. It's absurd really. I would rather pay a fee than see ads that mean nothing to me. We're inundated with ads everywhere - forced on us, shoved down our throats, plastered everywhere. If I see an ad, I don't want whatever it's selling - instantly.
Got Crystal installed. OMG! It's so nice not to have ads on websites now. Holy hell!!! Best feature yet of IOS 9 by far!
This is probably the best feature of iOS 9. Mobile Safari feels much faster now.
Just FYI (for anyone who didn't know, as I didn't) - these content blockers - or at least the ones I initially checked out - seem to be compatible only w/iPhone 5S and later...
Says Crystal is no longer available when I try the above link...
link still working here & on app store on the phone.
canadian app store
Mine is the US store. Maybe something just going on with mine...
Apparently it's a 64-bit requirement thing. Although I feel (hope!) it might be possible to compile an open source ad blocker and sideload it with Xcode 7 onto 32-bit devices.
