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

Airpush Detector Seems to work? Trouble is when I try to use it, it says my phone is awesome and I don't need this app! Just press notification for a few seconds, what's all that about?

Very helpful. Recommended. I have always used this, but when I upgraded my phone it informed me I no longer needed it due to the new software on my phone . Thank you very much for the help. And for being honest.

5 star Keep Shining* Tried so many different things to block those ads, but in the end this app worked.Photo Editor Pro was the culprit.
