What’s New

Version 4.5.1

Family Sharing has arrived in v4.5.1 and supports the original platform that you started your subscription from, for no additional cost.

Magic Lasso Adblock v4.5 is a complete redesign of the user-friendly, privacy aware and platform-native Safari ad blocker for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. Version 4.5 delivers a "powerfully simple ad blocking experience" with simplified ad, tracker and annoyance blocking. The redesign better surfaces all of the app’s features and we’ve also focused on making advanced features, like Custom Rule creation, more accessible.

This version also includes these great new features from recent releases:
- Performance Insights – see the difference ad blocking makes and visualise ad blocking speed, energy efficiency and data savings for any site. You can use the Magic Lasso Pro web extension in Safari to see the ad blocking speed increase, energy savings, carbon reduction, data savings and the number of ads and trackers prevented. And with Insights on the Overview screen of the Magic Lasso app, you can view the data and energy saved, along with the average speed increase and total number of ads blocked since you enabled Magic Lasso.
- Tap to Block – Simply tap any element on a web page and watch it disappear from your view, ensuring it never disturbs your browsing again. And thanks to Tap to Block’s intelligence, any similar or repeating elements on the page, or across the whole site will also be removed. Adjustments are easy using the Expand or Contract buttons for refining your selection. Additionally, the Hide button provides an instant preview of the page without the selected elements visible. Advanced users seeking direct control can edit the resulting CSS to allow for precise selection and more sophisticated logic.
- Custom Rules – Craft your own ad blocking rules to block media, cookies, and JavaScript. Custom Rules complement Magic Lasso’s built-in ad blocking rules to ensure a faster, cleaner, and more personalised browsing experience. Custom Rules can apply to specific pages, all pages from a given site, or all web pages. Better yet, these rules seamlessly sync across your devices via iCloud, ensuring consistent ad blocking across all Apple platforms.

After updating, open the app to ensure you are using the most recent ad block rules.

Great service

I previously wrote the developer complaining about the lack of a universal subscription. I heard back that they were considering adding that ability. Not only did they add it✅, but when they added it I got a reply to my original email letting me know that they added it. What a great example of superior customer service and follow through.

Those same qualities are obvious in the app. They think about things, pay attention to details and follow through.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your great feedback and support. We're continuing to improve the app to make Magic Lasso Adblock the best ad blocker in the world.

Magic Lasso is exactly what I've been looking for. I find my internet to be very very slow at times which makes browsing not as enjoyable. Magic lasso made it so that my internet browsing is not only faster, but I don't have to worry about all the ads popping up. I do a lot of work through my smartphone including class work. This has made it easier for me to do research without any disruption. I will be using magic lasso from now on!

The app I’ve been searching for!

I am so happy I downloaded Magic Lasso! I’ve used other ad-blocking apps in the past but none are as efficient as this one. During my test run, I didn’t see a single advertisement or pop-up, and I noticed that the page loading times for Safari have decreased significantly. I definitely recommend this as I am now browsing the web faster than ever with no annoying ads (a millennial’s dream come true! 😜)
