Adblock Plus Launches Ad-Blocking App for Android Phones and Tablets

We just recieved some news from Adblock. They released their ad blocking browser extension which works with unrooted devices, too. It is 100% free and makes your Android device much more enjoyable.
Adblock Plus blocks: mobile ads, video advertising, banners, push notifications, display advertising, HTML5 advertising, and much more.

World’s First Ad Blocker for Non-Rooted Android Phones;
Speeds Browsing on Mobile Devices By Up To 40%

Cologne, Germany – November 27, 2012 – Adblock Plus today announced the
launch of the latest version of its popular ad-blocking software, designed to work on
Android smartphones and tablets. The FREE app is available at the Google Play app store or from the website, and is the first ad blocker for Android that doesn't require a rooted (jailbroken) phone.

The latest addition to the community-driven, open source Adblock Plus project
comes in the form of a free app that users can download onto their Android
smartphone or tablet, which will allow them to benefit from the same features as
the Adblock Plus extension for Internet browsers.

Till Faida, Co-Founder of Adblock Plus comments; “Mobile devices have exploded over the past few years, and as usage of these devices has increased, so has advertising, which is becoming more and more intrusive. Mobile devices can feel more ‘personal’ than online browsing via a desktop device, making advertising on these devices even more intrusive and annoying when they interrupt browsing. And by blocking ads from rendering, Adblock Plus users can experience up to 40% faster browsing on their Android devices.”

Adblock Plus for mobile works exactly the same as the browser extension, blocking
all intrusive ads on your Android device. It blocks all online advertising when
browsing, and blocks in-app advertising in popular apps such as Facebook and
Angry Birds.

The launch of the new platform demonstrates the changing face of the advertising
market and the new ways in which organisations are looking to target individuals.
“With so many new technologies available, and advertisers reacting to these, it
stimulates fresh debate for advertising across different channels to be evaluated,
standardised and a set of acceptable rules implemented,” added Till.

Till concluded: “Mobile advertising is still incomparable to that which is online -
despite the growth in mobile devices - but this is soon set to change. Ensure you’re
protected before your device is bombarded with advertising.”
