As many of you might have already noticed that unlike iOS most of the apps in the Android are free but ad supported. Which is quite fine but some times some nasty apps show excessive number of ads, and some of them are very annoying to say the least. Also a big issue is that when you visit the Web browser either stock or a 3rd party, you are again greeted with a plethora of ads which really hurt the user experience on the mobile as well wastes the precious bandwidth for users on 3G network. And to put icing on the cake these ads also slow down the internet browsing particularly on the slower/older mobile Android devices!
If you are on a rooted Android device and want to get rid of these ads once for all there are a number of options. As there a some useful Android apps available that allows to block the ads in the Internet browser as well as apps. Two great Android apps that I am going to recommend are AdFree and AdAway – both are available for free Android Market and pretty effective. They basically nullify the requests to all known ad hosts and result is cleaner mobile user experience without ads. Note that as mentioned before a rooted Android device is required to install these apps (either install AdFree or AdAway). After installation, all you need is to reboot the device and after that you will see all the ads have magically disappeared both in apps and in the browser!
