Addons Detector

Addons Detector


==We are aware of a Android 5.0+ bug that causes crashes. This seems to be a Android bug which we can't fix ourselves. We are working on a workaround!==

Addons Detector detects addons used by your installed applications. It has all the tools to find push notification ads and icon ads.

If you are looking for the app that uses AirPush or other push notifications, you can easily find the app and uninstall.

Besides push notifications, using this app is a great way to see what advertising agencies apps use, and what tools they have integrated.

Does the normal scan not detect the spam ads? Enable the notification monitor and you can easily see which program puts a notification in your notification area.

Another cool feature that we added is the live scanner. This scanner scans newly installed and updated apps for selected addon categories and displays a notification if they are found. This feature is reserved for users that have donated.

If you are getting shortcut spam on your homescreen, we've added a new icon ad monitor that should detect that too.

**To support us you can now easily donate through inapp billing.**

** Beta testers: If you want to beta test new functionality join our Google+ beta test group: http://goo.gl/P1TkpR and follow the instructions to receive beta updates through Google Play. **

*** Known issues ***
Samsung Galaxy 3 keeps talking to me when on my home screens saying folder is open or similar.
This seems to be an ICS/Samsung bug. It happens for some people and also with other apps that use the accessibility service such as Tasker, Light Flow and others.

Try to fix it:
Samsung S3: - Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Talkback "ON" - Select "Settings" from the bottom of the page - Uncheck all Talkback options - Switch Talkback "Off" again - Go back to Settings -> Application manager -> All - Disable Google TTS (text to speech) - Disable Samsung TTS (text to speech)

DISCLAIMER:
We can't guarantee that our results are 100% correct. Sometimes addons, like pushnotifications, are integrated in larger sdk's, and the developer doesn't need to use them, although we detect them. We strive to be conservative about marking apps as suspected, but errors can occur.

Recent changes:
-Fix scanner crash on Android 5.0
- Livescanner notifications now only show new apps that are scanned after dismissing previous notification.
-Minor bugfixes

Simply the best app for the task. I have found plenty of airpush ridden apps hiding in my system and removed them. All thanks to this tool.

To complicated Just want to see what is sending me adds then I want to really hit a delete button, come in its 2015 guys most people using phones don't want geek gui buttons just straight up this add is sending you advertising, do you want to delete yes or no. Let's get it done so I can give you 5 stars.

Stopped working Have had it installed for a long time but with the 5.0.1 (Lollipop) update after scanning it crashes. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. When it worked I liked it. Reply; Unfortunately even after restarting after updating the app the April 14th update did not fix the problem. Still crashes after scanning in 5.01 on Note 4.
