Rawr! BlockBear is a really simple and ferocious adblocking app that allows you to browse the web ad-free and reclaim valuable screen space.

• Blocks ads (popups, text ads, banners) and removes website clutter
• Loads many websites 3-5x faster saving time and bandwidth
• Protects your privacy from widespread online tracking (cookies, beacons, scripts, etc)
• Lets you choose to block any combination of ads, online tracking and social buttons with a simple switch
• Helps you to conveniently whitelist your favourite websites from within Safari using the BlockBear Safari extension
• Includes 100% more bears than competing ad blockers

Yeah, you could download another adblocker… but then you wouldn’t have a bear.

What’s New

Great app with no issues

This is the first time I actually took the time to leave a review for an app since this app actually deserves a 5 star review. It is simple and works really well and it’s even very easy to turn it off in case the website has an issue with adblockers while it of course doesn’t block all the ads it does a very good job (especially considering no ad blocker could block every possible ad) and considering that this is free it is a very good app

One problem

I have had to disable this simply because it makes following shopping links impossible. Do a search in google for something you want to buy, select the shopping option to filter your results and when you try and follow links then this app blocks them. It’s often the same when your at a reputable site who provides links to the cheapest vendors of something being reviewed and this app blocks them.

This is a good blocker but I Spend too much time having to go to settings to disable it just so I can follow links.

Great App

Block bear made an impossible website be possible again. I couldn’t access one of my favourite news sites because of the new and constant pop ups that would make safari impossible to use, take me to new pages and tell me I’d won prizes. I searched for a pop up blocker, chose the first free one (block bear) turned it on in my settings, Tried the site again and it was instantly ok to use and back to how it used to be. Highly recommend.
