    Yeah.. Its just stupid to do that. Apparently though.. I should've been able to long press on the push and see where it was coming from... But i tried and it dismissed the add... So.. This kind of strange

    Be sure to leave a rating on the Play Store to convey that this is not something that is acceptable. I have no problems with ads inside of apps, but developers should not assume it is ok to break out of their app's internal ecosystem.

    I used AdAway for years in both my Fascinate & S3 and it caught the majority of ads. I switched to AdFree a few months before picking up my S5 and haven't looked back. Give that one a try if you're not happy with the other two.
