Good blocker but annoying

The blocker works great, but it needs a constant opening of a "buy subscription" page when there is an update. This is happening constantly (almost every day) and it is frustrating. I understand that it is hard to sell a product, but there are other ways to do that.
[EDIT]: I don't see updates so often as before. Also, I have received a personal message from the developer related to my comment, saying they will change things I wasn't happy about. I appreciate that very much. With this huge improvement, from now on, I will recommend this product to everyone!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for using Magic Lasso and for your feedback. You should only receive a notification to update at most once weekly. We have also heard your feedback on the subscription prompt and so have redesigned this panel as part of our upcoming v2.0 release to make it less intrusive.

Does exactly what it advertises.

Ad Block by Magic Lasso is completely free, doesn't nag you or barge in on you to upgrade to an annual subscription, and blocks ads without breaking a sweat. Pages load faster with far less hassle. I have zero regrets about downloading and installing this app on all my devices.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your great feedback and support. We're continuing to make the app even better and have some great new features planned in the future.

Paid for Pro, still got ads

After paying for the pro-version, I was surprised I was still getting You Tube ads. So, I had to double up with another ad blocker to fix that. Everything was perfect after that.

The last update informed users that it would be allowing "good ads" to be seen. Now I am seeing ads where I previously didn't see them, such as Reddit.

I ask, what is the point of paying for a premium version of an ad blocker when the developer allows "good ads" to be seen? Save your money, skip the pro version.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for supporting ongoing development via your Pro subscription.
Our new v3.0 release now delivers best in class YouTube ad blocking. Simply enable the new Magic Lasso Pro extension and turn on the ‘Block YouTube ads’ setting to block over 10 types of YouTube ads.
The prior update didn't allow any new ads to be displayed except when the "Community Whitelist" feature is enabled. You can easily disable this feature in the "Whitelists" tab and see if this resolves the issue. We will also look at specifically why Reddit ads aren't being blocked and will resolve it in a free ad blocking rule update. If you have any other feedback please feel free to email feedback@magiclasso.co and we'll do as much as possible to help.
