    Thanks for the find.

    Have you tried it out? If so what do you think?

    I believe Adfree blocks ads in free apps like pandora.

    Ok, never had pandora installed, just tried it out and I see no ads...

    EDIT: I see a blank box at the bottom of the screen. Is that where the ads are usually displayed?

    It blocks ads for what it has the correct hosting file for. If it doesn't have that then it won't block it. It may be up to date yet still not have all the host files out there.

    Sent from somewhere...
