Google In all honesty, this has taken far longer than I anticipated. Google, the world's largest internet advertising company, has removed several popular ad-blocking tools from the Play Store. While they are technically in the right to do so - they violate the Play Store developer distribution agreement - it's still a bit of a dick move. Luckily, though, unlike some other platforms, you can easily sideload the adblockers onto your Android device.

According to the Android Police website:

... one can install AdAway from F-Droid http://f-droid.org/ (which is an Android FOSS repository).

Android Police:
Please switch to the open alternative: F-Droid (https://f-droid.org/FDroid.apk) and install AdAway with F-Droid.
