Very good. It detected apps with push ads that other ads detection apps didn't (tested "Ad Detector", "Ad Network Detector", "Addons Detector"; nice apps but they miss stuff)

Only a 2 because it doesn't block ads It's good as a privacy advisor finding out what tools developed an app and knowing what networks an app gets their adds from but it doesn't actually block them which is something it claims to do 2/5 for false advertising
