    Hey guys, not sure if anyone has posted about this or not...but I can't find anything regarding it. I got an update on my DX about a month or 2 ago...my gf got one on her Samsung Galaxy Prevail (I think)...and we have both been getting this app spam. It shows up in our notification bars with a little star. If you click it to open it, it opens in the browser asking you if you want to download this or that app etc...Anyone know what this is? Neither of us downloaded anything...no apps that we haven't already had.

    What site does it take you to? Is it the same site or different ones?

    Different ones. It's never the same site.

    Hmm. I assume you all are on Verizon? I would uninstall apps one by one until it stops. Its probably an app that got automatically updated and added ads as pop ups.

    It's an app. Search the forum for I believe air ads. You can also search for plus sign in notification bar.

    There is an app you can download that will tell you which app is doing it. I can't remember the name.

    Yup. I can't remember the name, but if the OP uses those search terms he should find topics with the name.

    Thank you!

    Hopefully I'll at least remember the app name.
