installed one a few hours ago and visiting any site is fast and slick now. What a great improvement!
Would've greatly benefited older devices but too bad Apple gimped iOS 9 on older devices as there's no technical reason it couldn't run. I use Adguard on older 2012 Android device and not only does it run without issue but it also enhances the browsing experience due to less CPU and resource utilization without ads.
I use an app called 'Crystal' and it really is brilliant for getting rid of ads that bloat websites.
"Purify" is the best. It's allows for more configuration.
I use Crystal for now, seems to catch everything on the sites I use, and hasn't caused any problems so far. Thanks for mentioning Purify, will keep that in mind, too.
I have been hearing about these add blockers is this a new feature of iOS 9 that is allowing this? Is it worth it does it work with Safari?
Yes, it works with Safari. I believe the requirements are iOS 9 and a 64-bit device. It's as easy as installing a "content blocker" from the AppStore (in my case: Crystal), going into the iOS settings for Safari, and then enabling the content blocker of your choice from there. After a restart of Safari it will be active. In case of Crystal you'll also want to start it manually once in a while so that it updates its block list (others probably work similarly). It's not necessary to have the content blocker running in the background.
Maybe have a poll for content blockers? I'd say purify is better than peace.... And crystal is the worst.
Wish they could import user defined rules later, or maybe have an Adblock official one
Blockr is suppose to be one of the better ones.
Peace was pulled because the developer Marco is a useless coward and loser.
Purify is overhyped because it has a whitelist feature (like I care about any publishers losing ad revenue)
Crystal costs a dollar, blocks everything, and you can instantly report any sites that has ads.
Worst my ass.
Yeah. Just found that peace is pulled down.
Well, at least I've seen couple sites that crystal did nothing, while purify blocked pretty much all the ads.
I don't know how this apps manage their blacklist, maybe things will change overtime depends on their effort put on updating lists.
Well, just tried crystal again, I can definitely say it's improving DAY BY DAY.
Is their any chance these programs catch and store some of your data?
Ad blockers don't track you. They just block ad servers from displaying on any website. Integrated ads that are served as content can't be stopped but the perimeter ads and pop-up ads are stopped.
I download Crystal since it was 99 cents and it seems sweet so far loaded espn no ads wow. WOW
I went with crystal myself. It's crazy how much snappier safari feels.
Anyone try Silentium?
You can report sites through the Crystal app and it says in 7 days they'll have the blacklist updated.
Crystal has been working well for me also.
Crystal has been great for me.
Exactly. In choosing to allow scrips in ads, and in allowing untrusted ad networks to serve these ads and track users in the process, ad-supported websites have brought this upon themselves. Judgement day is finally here and it's a great thing for iOS users that are sick and tired of aggressive and intrusive advertising.
Using crystal and the difference is amazing, no more "problems reloading"messages
Blockr is $0.99, has a whitelist, some config options (block social sharing buttons, privacy, etc.), and has done a great job so far in eliminating the whitespace left by a removed ad.
Crystal is very much a set and forget type app with no real customization. If that's what you're looking for, you'll love it- but a whitelist is an extremely basic feature every ad blocker should have.
Adblock is a must have app.
I've tried three ad blockers so far and the one that works the best on the pages I visit is the free app AdMop. Crystal missed some ads and blocked images that weren't ads. Blockr missed a lot of ads, way more than Crystal. AdMop blocked all ads and hasn't blocked any images that aren't ads so far. AdMop's settings and report feature are clunkier and less accessible but so long as it works the best at blocking ads that's what's most important to me and it's free. I wish I hadn't paid for the other two.
