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.

for apps it's okay

for in app advertising this is okay. However I've run into cases where the app itself laid advertising on mostly on top of one of their buttons, trying to force you to go visit the advertiser. That type of advertising I do consider abusive.
