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.

I'm of the opinion that I'd rather have a partial feature set of a program to try it out, than to have a full featured one that is ad supported. I absolutely hate advertisements, and 90% of the time if I see a program or application that is somehow ad supported, I remove it immediately. I usually don't suffer this that much, since I bought a Nokia N9, after being fed up with the whole Android / Google thing.

But there are still a few apps out there that insist on being ad-supported. It's especially terrible if you don't have unlimited data.
