BANISH. The #1 Safari Extension to block annoying 'Open in App' popups & other dark patterns on the web.

“Banish does one thing and does it well: it nukes dickpanels in Safari on iPhone and iPad”
— John Gruber, Daring Fireball

"The app proved incredibly useful. For instance, when on Quora, clicking a link to another Quora page would normally pop up a blocker that requires you to log in to continue navigating the website. With Banish, this pop-up was gone and you could use the site normally"
— Sarah Perez, TechCrunch

Banish does not collect or store any of your data - nothing leaves your device.

Just a one-time purchase and Banish is yours. No subscriptions, no in-app purchases, no ads, no nonsense.

The app performs the minimal, necessary changes to block popups and free up screen space.

It's as easy as downloading the app and enabling it in Safari settings. No maintenance needed.

Banish is written in Apple's latest programming paradigm Swift UI and Safari Extension functionality.

NOTE: Even with Banish, Smart Banners can still appear at the top for apps you have installed. They can't be removed because they're built into Safari.

Keeps annoyances out!

I purchased and installed banish the moment I found out about it. It solves a problem which had been degrading my experience using web apps on Safari. It simply does what it says and Alex updates the app regularly making it even better. Loves it! Highly recommended for anyone who wants to surf the web with peace of mind!

doesn't work as advertised

This app doesn't block the banners as it says. Useless. I wish the App Store would implement a refund policy for apps that just do not work.

Just bought and tried. Didn’t work.

Checked reddit, amazon -> Both show the “open with bla bla”. That is why I bought this app in app store slightly more expensive than US of A’s app store. I will ask for a refund. Much disappointed haha lol

Developer Response ,

Sadly, those are Smart Banners. Banners can still appear at the top for apps you have installed. They can't be removed because they're built into Safari. The only way to remove them is to uninstall those apps.
