    Default AdFree and Angry Birds Seasons

    I'm running AdFree on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. 4.0.2, unlocked, rooted, otherwise stock.

    I noticed that AdFree doesn't block ads on Angry Birds? Has anyone else noticed that, or is there a configuration problem on my end?

    AdFree is blocking ads in GasBuddy and TweetCaster, so I know it basically works. It even blocks ads in Words with Friends (App displays a blank black ad screen with return to game button, but with no content).

    Is there something I can do to make it work with Angry Birds?

    Is that to suggest that adfree is successfully removing the ads from angry birds on your bionic?

    I'm running Android Revolution ROM, and I've noticed intermittent ad blocking in all the Angry Birds apps. Maybe a future update to Adfree will fix this.

    By disabling mobile network or enabling Airplane Mode (There both the same thing basically) you'll not see the ads. The downside is that you won't see any incoming messages, receive calls, etc.

    I see annoying ads on my PC and Android seems to be no different However, I don't use any of these ad blocking apps. I simply disable my wifi.

    I simply cannot use ad-block on my tablet for the reason that it always signs me out of my online sites that I am logged into. This gets very annoying. If I am not using an online service, I do exactly what the above user does.

    Agree. I mean some of the ads are really annoying and sometimes even misleading but since it's only an ad I don't really care. Except those 'you phone is infected' ads, they should be blocked for sure.
