AirPush Detector

AirPush Detector


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.

Recent changes:
* Added detection for new ad frameworks: SendDroid, AppBucks, Kuguo, and Applovin'
* Added a message for Android 4.1+ users explaining why they don't need this app

Didn't work for me I keep getting full screen ads whenever I unlock my screen... This app didn't find a problem. Too bad, seems to have worked for others.

Great App, but be aware... 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.
