AdAway user reviews:
An absolute necessity! Have a lotta annoying ad-containing apps and if it wasn’t for this gem of an app, I’d hate the apps. Saved a lotta money on apps whose pro and free versions are only differentiated by ad support. Love this tons! <3
It seems to be missing the hosts that Adfree has no trouble blocking. Otherwise, very similar to Adfree.
Its interface is clean. Operations are automated and smooth. Once it had been installed, the previously ad-supported apps on my phone stopped displaying ads. (e.g., Reiner Knizia’s Labyrinth, Wifi Analyzer.) It missed an “Airpush” ad on my phone, though. (The Airpush ad was installed by Android Speed Booster by Silver Spark Studios; I got rid of it.)
Switched from Adfree after it stopped working. Just run the app, restart your phone and presto!
Is the best reason to root your phone! No more ads, it’s as simple as that
All my apps that had annoying ads are now free from all that unsightly rubbish. Great job. Thanks
Has black/whitelisting, pulls from 3 lists, can autoupdate daily (and only via wifi if you want), and is easy to use. Glad it uses 0.0.0.0 so I don’t have to change it myself.
It just updates your hosts file to block ads and doesn’t even stay running unless you want it to. Quality app!
