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!!!

Be gone vile autoplaying videos of the nether realm

I’ve been looking for something like this forever, while it completely kills videos in Safari the trader is worth it for me, I can’t stand autoplaying videos...they are up there with ads. Thank you so much, you have no idea how this has changed using the iPad to browse for me now

Love it

Thank goodness for this app. It’s the only app of its kind that I have found. I would only love to see a few more features, such as a local log, as well as being able to block IP addresses and specific ports (in addition to domains/websites). Ain’t no reason my phone should be making an ssh connection.
