In this version of the app, we have fixed many bugs, added an internal authorization screen, improved the design and, what’s most important, added special “Content blockers” tab to keep you up to date regarding your filters. In addition, we now have one more content blocker so you can block even more ads!
Ratings and Reviews
Straightforward UI thats not overly complicated and easily allows the user to custom choose what protection they would like. AdGuard has also included its own set of rules that have been built from easylist/easyprivacy & fanboy list and specifically customized them for the mobile platform and iOS specifically that can used by themselves, with easylist, or not at all. They give full control to the user, no sponsor ads or paid ads are allowed through. There is a filter that allows self promotion ads like the ones see when using googles search engine, but the user can turn it off and on. If none of AdGuards syntax rules block a specific popup, ad, or third-party widget there’s an option to manually block it and add it to the user filter option so its blocked in the future. Whitelist is also available to turn rules off on certain websites. And the rules update multiple times throughout the day regularly so the latest adblock protection is always used.
Still in the first 24 hours of using, but good so far...
So far it’s doing well! I’ve only had it up and running now for about a full 24 hours. So far it’s doing what it’s supposed to be doing for me. We’ll see if I need to update this later down the road, but I sure hope not! I don’t mean to be skeptical, but everything else I’ve tried seems to not work, or crash, Or slow down my phone and stops blocking anything it’s supposed to after so much time of using them. I’m hoping I don’t have to update from here and it ends up being great like I have heard it was, because it was highly recommended to me!

Hello €hrï$¥, thank you very much for using our app and for the review! I just wanted to make sure everything works fine and you are satisfied with AdGuard's performance. I also wonder what can we do to get 5 stars.

It works great for blocking those annoying ads. But it fails miserably at being able to whitelist more than one site. The first one I whitelisted, I have no problems with. But the second one? Can’t come close to saying the same. Nine times out of ten, when I visit that site, I get the message that its being blocked by an ad blocker. That defeats the entire purpose of having the whitelist function. Get it together.
Edit: Well, now it doesn’t even function at all! I had to turn the blocker off to use a site (the same one I alluded to earlier,) but after turning it back on, it blocks NOTHING! Even after making certain it was on, and restarting the phone 7 times already, I STILL get ****ing ads! EPIC FAIL!
Edit 2: It’s official. This is easily the worst “ad blocker” I’ve ever had. Despite being active, it does NOT block ads. I had to deactivate for a few minutes to use a site that was *supposedly* whitelisted. Then I reactivated it, and *nothing.* I closed all tabs, and restarted Safari. I wiped my history, and cookies. I even restarted the phone 3 times. Nothing. It is a colossal failure. I do not recommend it at all.
