    Yes, for the most part. Once in a while it'll miss an ad or two from what I remember, but overall it's nearly as good as changing the hosts file when jailbroken. I just started running it today again on a stock iPad Air 2, and I'm not seeing anything on it so far that is different from what I get on the jailbroken Mini 2 or iPhone.

    Actually I did have a front page add, so decided to activate this amazing program on my iPad Air. I pasted in the command in settings then reloaded my Front Page in Safari and it he added went poof!
    Yes, weblock works.

    Thank you for making this post. Web ads on my iPad Air are driving me crazy and really hurt the overall browsing experience. I'll have to give this a try.

    Your welcome.

    Good news is iOS 9 apple will allow more ad blocking!

    I just wish I could decide to keep my iPad Air 2 or return it and get the Surface 3.

    Still haven't found a good YouTube app for iOS :(

    It does exactly the same. The app gives you a link to use as a proxy server, so you have to set it up for each wifi connection you're on. And it doesn't work over mobile data.
