Update: still good but some ads getting through
The description claims that the Adblock based on EasyList is automatically updated, but the rule count has been stuck at 32,709 rules for months. I don't think it's actually updating in any meaningful way. When I first got Refine it blocked ALL ads, but as time has gone on, a few ads have been slipping through. It's overdue for an update and the author hasn't touched it in months, but still does a good job blocking a lot of ads, and the price is right. Occasionally some sites need to be reloaded with content filters disabled in order to function properly, but such sites are rare. This would be a 5 star app if it updated more and if the UI weren't so ugly and iPhone sized, which looks ridiculous on an iPad.
Outstanding. These guys are the best.
These guys are offering a highly-customizable ad blocker for peanuts. No "in-app" purchases, no subscriptions, no nickel-and-dime tactics--just a rock solid service, period. And not only do they offer their product at an utterly affordable one-time price, they also make it so easy to operate that even a bunch of poorly trained meerkats of questionable aptitude could still figure out how to "set it and forget it" on their iOS devices.
Now, just many app developers could learn from the example the Refine development team sets--more than half? Better than 90%? Whatever the number (and it's a high one, no doubt about that), the folks at Refine have certainly earned my loyalty and support--their low-pressure, non-intrusive business practices are like a breath of fresh air in this era of the non-stop sales pitch.
Best free ad blocker
Fast, effective and doesn't stop any websites I use from working (which other ad blockers did). Before using an ad blocker Safari would regularly crash and take a long time to load pages. With this it never crashes and pages load so much quicker. I have also seen a significant drop in my data usage. Docked 1 star as the config screen could use some work and adding to the whitelist is a little clunky, but I haven't had to use that yet anyway.
