    I installed but had to uninstall it as my phone crashed a couple times.

    Just installed on my smartphone/Android, seems to be working well, completely remove ads from the free Pandora app and everything else I can see, looks good.

    If your phone is rooted then apps like Adaway are the better option because they use the hosts file to block ads and don't have to be running all the time in the background like I would assume this does.

    I'm not fussed on adblockers for Android, as I used one when I first bought an Android phone at the start of last year, and it was interfering with my web browsing on my PC when I tethered my phone to my PC. It took me a while to find the cause of the problem, but since then I've been adblocker free.

    I also never use any adblocker software or block lists on my PCs as sometimes they block access to legitimate websites.
