    That'll tell what is causing them but doesn't block them, leaving either get a blocker app or delete the app pushing the ads. I use AirPush Permanent Opt Out to block ads from showing up without having to delete the apps that use Air Push.

    Have you looked at the rating for AirPush Permanent Opt Out recently? 2 stars with 84 fives and 260 ones.

    Yeah, the Opt Out did nothing for me. I ended up just deleting the apps responsible.

    It works fine for me.
    Did you read any of the 1stars? Most are because it doesn't remove banner ads. The app is not for banner ads. It's like giving Tapatalk a 1 because it doesn't link to Facebook or Twitter.
