Ratings and Reviews
Not only an “Ad Blocker”, but can be used for Content Blocker!
My first app review ever!
Wow! I am so happy and relieved. I found a way to block internet stories about Trump! Like him or hate him...there is just too much about him every day! It was overwhelming.
I downloaded Roadblock because it also allows “custom settings”. After one email exchange with the developer, in the custom settings I wrote “Trump”, and now 90% of the stories never show on my browser and the 10% that slip through don’t allow me to click through to the article!!!
The developer wrote that the app “currently only allows filtering based on things that match in the URL. For example, you can block URLs if "trump" appears anywhere in the URL.” That is why I got a 90% success rate instead of 100%.
The developer then wrote: “We will add the ability to hide content based on matching things in URLs in the next update.”
For my purposes, the 90% Reduction in Trump stories is amazing for my internet experience. Then, with the blocking of “advertising”, I am thrilled with this app.
Well worth the $1.99.
I have an amazing feeling of freedom today!!!
Excellent content blocker
This app is definitely powerful! This one has got to be the best one I have ever tried. The app comes with the ability to configure it in several ways. I’m so glad I purchased this one. In app purchases to unlock all the features is really low cost and absolutely worth it!
Right off the bat i could tell that i had found the right app. Apps software stable easy to read and easy to use (we are in the same page)...
