I’m curious to see what the app’s rating is with only V4’s reviews.

V4 makes lemonade! 5/5
I was concerned that v4 would be the end. However, the devs have made lemonade from Apples lemons. Adblock continues to do what it did best! Yay!
Not working anymore 1/5
It used to work exceptionally well. But thanks for Apple to forcing developer to disable features or else they will be removed from the AppStore. Welcome to the ads world.

This was a awesome app before the updates
Used to work well 2/5
The new update has made this really slow. Had to disable. Hope and update fixes this
Used to work, now absolute garbage 2/5
Used to love it. Worked perfectly. With new update using DNS blocking it's just not working. Peroid. Its a shame. Used to be a great app.
V4 Update is not helpful 1/5
Roll back the update. VPN is slowing my phone.
Ads not effectively working on non safari apps.
Does not work 1/5
This app WAS amazing, but now it doesn’t even work, and I even gave it a chance to update/patch for over 2 months. I have already troubleshooted for around an hour and a half. I’m pretty sad this does not work anymore.
Battery Life 4/5
Before Update 4.0, the my battery life was good, but now with 4.0 my battery dies a lot faster now
No ads finally 💯 5/5
I love the new update, since now it doesn’t just randomly stop. Would recommend. Also, a lot of these bad reviews are from older versions.
Ruined good app 1/5
By Paleo Schnauzer
No longer blocks ads in paid apps like NASCAR which is a subscription. Not blocking those click ads in safari either. Functionality gone.
Only works in Safari 2/5
I really want to love this app, but I’m a Chrome user, all my bookmarks and email goes through google, and I don’t feel like changing that. It’s a real pain in the butt to me that I now have to try to figure out how to manually block every. single. ad. that pops up in Chrome if I want to block ads in Chrome. I don’t have to do this for Safari, but I don’t want to be force-fed Safari when I’m a Chrome user. Can’t AdBlock allow a function for all the same content filters it gets to automatically use in Safari for other web browsing apps, at the very least? If not, that seems like ios is unfairly undermining other browsing apps. They might as well just only allow one browser on their phones if this is how it’s going to be. I’m also disappointed that popups and banners are showing up in all my other internet using apps except Safari. Do I have to manually block every individual ad myself? This seems tedious, and is NOT at all what I paid for.
I realize this is mostly the fault of ios, but still, there has got to be a better solution than forcing me to figure out how to block every ad for myself. AdBlock is no longer the one swipe to rule them all, because it no longer takes only one swipe. Not even close.
Security Risks 1/5
V2 worked well. V3 setting up the DNS to Google which is a security concern. V4 completely USELESS. I need the IPA for V2.
I’ve tried a few different ones, the others didn’t have the ability to be easily turned on or off but this one does. For some reason this one blocked stuff better for about the first day or so but now I’m seeing useless to me adds on the pages again, the main reason I prefer them blocked is to cut down on expensive data usage
v4 finally gets it right 5/5
The issue with random disconnecting is finally fixed in this, and the DNS adblocker is much more reliable. Just wish there was a way to block page elements but that isn't a big deal.
Not good version v4 3/5
It very out of battery and alway show VPN on top of the screen
The app worked wonderfully but fails
V4 update killed the app 2/5
The V4 update made this app utter garbage. VPN slowed my internet speed from 75 Mbps to literally 10 and sometimes less. Playing music? Forget it. Surfing the internet? Also forget it. It is stupidly slow. I couldn't do anything on my phone. Thankfully I had a back of the older version and restored it. DO NOT update. I'm giving it two stars only because it actually does block all ads on data and wifi (in apps and safari) with no problem.
تطبيق adblock 5/5
تطبيق رائع ويستحق 5 نجوم
Add please on Android
Doesn't Work Anymore! 1/5
Don’t update. I saw the update 3 days ago, and decided to see if anyone had reviewed it before downloading, and supposedly it’s worse than ever. This app has been virtually worthless since V3, but still does work only if I toggle the able/disabled function several times. It actually works until I charge my phone, and then I have to do the process all over again. I have an SE 64GB, and most complaints come from those with the 6 and 7 models. I’m not updating, and I’ve actually paid for other ad blockers which are worthless, too. I believe the free ad blockers are probably the best at this time.
Pretty good 4/5
It should be made more clear that blocking ads outside of safari is a completely manual process
Doesn’t work 1/5
I’m still seeing a ton of annoying ads.
👍🏻 now an excellent local DNS proxy tool 5/5
Perfect for those of us who want to both monitor and control which servers our devices are allowed to contact. The latest update now provides a DNS proxy log, enabling you to see which domains your device is attempting to contact and giving you the option of blocking them using a local, on-device VPN server.
Killing my battery 1/5
Phone gets hot and battery drops quickly when enabled.
DOESNT WORK 1/5
By SKY K1NG
I updated my phone to the iPhone 7/iOS 10 and it doesn't block any ads anymore I want my money back. And there is no way to email or contact them. This is a SCAM
It really works 5/5
Please give us an option to turn the VPN icon off!
Version 4 doesn’t block adds in apps anymore. 2/5
Thanks but you are obsolete.
Used to be able to block in app ads, now I can’t. After playing a game now I get ads. Please fix. Your app also keeps turning on my VPN randomly and I can’t get the symbol to go away.
V4 adds much appreciated functionality 5/5
By Phillip Hackney
To all the people giving this bad reviews because they think it removed functionality: it doesn't. As someone who works in IT and deals with networking on a daily basis I actually understand how it works, which is to modify the IP address that adservers resolve to, thereby blocking them. The older version accomplished this by redirecting all ad traffic to 127.0.0.1 (also known as local host). But the previous version didn't have a way to add custom rules. This version basically adds the functionality of a DNS hosts file to the iPhone, which means it can do more than just block ads. For example you should be able to use this to test out a website you're developing before taking the DNS live. Everything in the default ruleset is being null routed to 0.0.0.0. And the DNS proxy log allows you to see what adservers an app is using and add additional rules for anything that isn't getting caught in the default ruleset. I've tested it on some of the ad heavy apps that I use and it works as advertised. I also appreciate the addition of the Safari blocker as I've wanted that feature to be combined into this app. I think what people are upset about is that the old version was more "set it and forget it". This version is more geared towards the power user I guess.
Battery drain issue 1/5
Latest update resulting in a battery hog. Also it disconnects itself, after you left it unused for a while, even after vpn is enabled. Was good before, but today it resulted in a lot of battery drain. Looked in the battery info, this app was the main culprit. Please look into it
Disconnects often 3/5
I don’t see ads anymore on apps. It’s back! But it still disconnects from time to time.
Good… when it worke 3/5
Even though I never shut off adblock on my own, it always shuts itself off which is quite annoying. It's very spotty and doesn't do it's job too well.
Good it on my iPhone 7+ 5/5
Good like it on iPhone 7+
4.0 lost all the useful functionality 1/5
The app is no longer worth using. It’s basically a glorified safari content blocker with worse default lists. Just use something else instead.
Works good when on 3/5
Does a good job blocking out ads. Works on the iPhone by VPN. My only complaint is I have noticed it frequently turns itself off throughout the day. I have to go back into the app to turn back on. I turned on the VPN visual display so I know when it turns itself off.
Previous version was better. 1/5
I know the developers had to compromise with Apple to keep it on the store, but now it just make it another regular content blocker.
I like the VPN / dns feature before, but now it won't work or allow other apps to function because they won't allow it. Before this update they did.
I hope there is an immediate fix or update soon to address all these issues.
Cannot black al ads so bad with updates 1/5
By Always disconnect with apps
Always disconnect with it , do the improvement as fast as possible !
I don't want to give stars for this version! Pooor😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡v4 is so poor with improvement
Pls update it as fast as possible
cool but.. 4/5
is there anyway to the vpn icon in status bar it would be the greatest 👌
Just another content blocker now 2/5
I loved this app, because it used to block ads everywhere on my phone, not just in Safari. But now due to the changes required by iOS 11, AdBlock performs like any other content blocker, like Purify, for 99% of users. Some power users will take advantage of the DNS proxy feature but I doubt the vast majority of us will bother.
Took my money 1/5
Basically took my money. I bought this with high hopes. Don’t waste your time.
v4 returns to blocking 4/5
By Connecticut Yankee
Toward the end of v3, I thought I’d have to remove this since it wasn’t blocking anything. Don’t know why persons are saying this doesn’t block in other apps. I have two in particular I test AdBlock with and it’s doing its job wonderfully. One thing I’ve had to do is uninstall and reinstall it. I have a VPN app which was locked on. After deleting this and reinstalling everything is fine. Thumbs up!
Do you know or are you aware that this does not work on iPad Pro 12.9 in cellular/ WiFi?
the last version is bad 1/5
By montathar hassan
Last update is not good and specifically blocking all ads in addition to the logo vpn remains visible in the upper bar always and can not hide it as in the previous version .. I hope to fix these problems as soon as possible
A LIL HELP! 5/5
Holy cow guys all this DNS, IP ADDRESS. Look I'm not computer savy, and this new ios11 update app looks great n all but all these settings and tech jargon are Greek to me. Seriously I have to take an IT class. Can someone explain all the new put this into this slot instructions???? Other than this it seems awesome I think???
Not worth paying for 2/5
Any number of free blockers I've used are more effective at blocking ads than AdBlock. iCab on its own is also more effective. Not worth a cent.
The v4 update works great!! 5/5
This app is a MUST HAVE for anyone who hates the distraction and annoyance of ads in iOS. Far more than a Safari-only blocker, this app is a game changer for both power and casual users!!
Exceptional ad blocking!!! 5/5
Back and back to the top of the list!
Highly recommended! Does what it says and works reliably!
Does it all the right way!!
Fell in love all over again w update!!!!
new update is awesome 5/5
the new update adds the safari extension. this app is NOW the all in one problem solver. i told my woman to buy it the other day. thank you developer.
