Shut Up spares you the opinions of troglodytes by hiding comment sections when browsing the web in Safari. You can also set your favorite websites to show comments by default.

That's it. Simple and free. Enjoy!

Get it!

Great app! For some reason I had to install twice before it worked, but now it does exactly what I want it to. Puts the kibosh on the soul-crushing cavalcade of idiocy and sociopathic mendacity that afflicts Internet web site commentary. Bliss.

Great concept, great app, one small thing

Super useful in that it prevents me from the odd compulsion to waste time reading the opinions of strangers.

However, I’ll sometimes want to deliberately check a site with a discussion thread on my phone and, after allowing it, I’ll delete the site from my “exception” list but comments still show up. Usually I have to uninstall and reinstall the app. Not quite sure why this happens.

Developer Response ,

There are a couple ways around this:
1. If you tap the "aA" icon in the toolbar next to the URL in Safari, there's an option that says "Turn off Content Blockers." That will reload the page without any blockers applied. The next page you load will turn them back on again.
2. When removing the site from the exception list, you should be able to reload the URL in Safari and the comments should be blocked again. The changes can only take effect when you reload the page.
Thanks for the review, hope this helps.

I can’t look at the internet without this

I am so very grateful for this absolutely necessary app. I can add sites to my whitelist, the rest vanish and I don’t miss the endless blather. Thank you for this.
