Product Description


This is a simple Android application which detects other installed applications which appear to use known notification ad frameworks and offers the user the ability to easily uninstall them.If your device is running Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean” or higher, you don’t need this app anymore! You can just press and hold on notifications and your device will tell you who is generating them.Currently detected frameworks include:- Airpush- LeadBolt- Appenda- IAC- Moolah Media- SendDroid- AppBucks- Kuguo- Applovin’THIS APP DOES NOT *BLOCK* THESE ADS. It only tells you which applications are causing them. You must uninstall the applications this app identifies to stop the ads.THERE IS NO OFFICIAL PAID OR “PRO” VERSION OF THIS APP. If you find an app with a similar name, description, and screenshots, odds are strong they have simply taken the source code and republished it as their own without any significant changes.If you experience crashes, using Android’s “Report” feature is likely to get it fixed. Leaving comments without any useful information is not :)This app is open source – see the development page for full source code.

    This app is great for the adware it knows. It seemed to have worked. I was getting popups on my HTC One v.2 from Google Play store. To the makers of this app, please be aware of such adware. Didn’t want to use your option of sending private info to gain more insight on what the new adware was, but please try to make your app recognize any new adware. Though, I think your scan worked for me. We will see.

    Any apps that is honest and tells you it doesn’t need any permissions and THEN honestly tells you, HEY! YOU HAVE ANDROID 4.1+, YOU DON’T NEED ME! is instantly deserving of 5 Stars. Then to top all that off, it tells me how to fix it myself. I wish I could give you more stars. You give a man a fish, he eats for a day. You teach a man to fish, he eats for life. You, good sir, have taught a man to fish. THANK YOU!

    Since one week i was fighting with this stupid pop up ads and couldn’t locate where they where coming from. Then i found online the recommendation to try this app. It found the root and i removed the app. The app was installed about 6 month already, so i guess the ad pusher was integrated through an app update…. Anyway the airpusher detector works perfect and in my opinion the developer that using this pop up ads should be removed from the play store.

    Given that I have a habit of downloading a handful of apps at a time, it was always a headache when one started pushing ads onto my phone. I’d end up unchecking the ‘receive notifications’ box on my applications manager, thus also blocking useful update notifications. With AirPush, I can execute a surgical strike, uninstalling only the specific apps causing the ads. It’s easy to use, since it does both a global scan of the phone, and identifies the source of particular ads.
