    Do other apps do this too?
    (i.e. adversely affected by ad-blocking)

    Seen in the Android Market:

    "ALSO NOTE: Users with 'rooted' devices and ad-blocker software installed may experience connectivity errors while using Medscape. Please disable ad-blocker software before attempting to download Medscape's offline Clinical Reference."

    It's up to the developer. They are using ads for revenue.
    They can have the app not work properly if ads are disabled.

    The Note makes it sound like a side-effect of the ad-blocker software.
    Do some Developers arrange for connectivity issues if they detect ad-blocking? :)

    There have been issues with ad blocking - battery consumption and sluggishness.

    Also, if you don't want to see ads, buy or donate. We NEED to support our devs.

    There is no paid version of Medscape in the Market.
