    Hi All
    I've been getting annoying ads in my notification bar. For example "Make upto $300/day as a movie extra." Ugh!
    How can I stop this? Is there an app Ive dl'd that is doing this that I can delete? Actually there must be hundreds that do this I would think. Anyone know of a few?

    Thanks in advance
    Al

    Found the answer in another post. Used air push detector to find the culprit. In my case it was MP3 music download

    Addons Detector works great too. I found it a little better than Air Push. There are many apps adding in air pushed ads now. I found one on a Go Launcher theme.

    I've recently been getting those ads also. I just installed Air Push Detector and it's not finding any apps which push notifications. I did install the ICS leak a few days ago, and thinking about it, I don't think I've seen any ads seen ICS installation. I did reinstall pretty much all the apps from the play store, and froze a bunch of bloatware. No ads yet though.
