    Crystal stopped working for me today. I started using Purify, which works very well. (I whitelisted iMore.com.)
    In what way did it stop working?

    Read a speed comparison between most popular ad blockers and the winner was 1blocker which was fastest in most websites. Downloaded it and after purchasing the additional blocking it really was faster than my previous crystal. Plus it has wide range of selections which content you want to block and which not. And you can create your own block list if you are into the tech stuff 😊

    I had to open the crystal app once but since then I haven't had to reopen it for it to continue blocking ads. So maybe opening the app sort of turned it on after enabling the app in the safari settings. I did this on my iPad Air 2 as well and haven't had to open the app since.

    Can someone check out Vivio Adblocker? The dev wants me to try it, but still on my 5 and not compatible. It's free for now.

    Is that by the actual creators of Adblock Plus? I don't think it is.

    I checked and it seems legit. Betafish is the company that developed it, according to Wikipedia. The information on there, as well as on the website, matches with the information on the apps page.

    By the way, I think you mean Adblock, not Plus. That's by a different company.

    I was talking about Adblock Plus made by the same guy that makes the Firefox extension. Its probably not the same guy because they just released a Adblock browser for iOS.

    Sometimes a reset is required for blockers to work.

    I am also using Crystal on my ipad at the moment and it seems to be working fine. I don't mind the banner ads but the pop ups really get to me especially when I have to wait 5 seconds or so to get any information. Google doesn't like ad blockers in their play store but they are available outside and with Apple on board, it is going to be interesting to see how things play out.

    Don't export encryption you can't break.

    Probably the same thing. Imagining this scenario:
    Google introduced a new API for ad-blocking in their Google Play Store API that many devs are using. The marketplace is then flooded with ad blocking apps and they are highly featured.
    This API will be made to allow "fair and unobtrusive ads" to pass through, and other method to make ad blocking outside this will be severely limited by Android's updates.

    I have multiple ad blockers downloaded and installed (just because we have to check them all out, right?)

    AdBlock Plus - addon for iOS safari, released recently
    Crystal
    Purify
    Peace - withdrawn from the App store

    Question 1: I see talk about checking the block list versions (of Crystal, for example). How do I do that? I see no place in Settings for Crystal or when opening the app itself to get the list versions.

    Question 2: Is there any benefit/harm in enabling multiple ad blockers? Do they work synergistically, do they interfere w each other? Apple allows you to enable them all. I did disable Peace, as it is a dead-end product.

    Yeah I got it to work, thanks guys. It's almost not worth it. I don't want to have to open the app constantly to refresh it and reload web pages just to hide one on a page. I would like it if it was a setting to be automatic... I'm probably just going to delete it
    I've been using Peace (which you can't get anymore) and Purify. Neither of those need to run in the background. It really makes browsing much easier.

    So I have downloaded 'Crystal', one of the most popular, well-rated ad-blocker apps on the App Store. I have activated it in Safari's settings as I've been instructed to do so by the app... Yet, I have seen zero difference in ads popping up while surfing the mobile web.

    Did I miss something?
    I use Freedom. Works great.
