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.

Cause users like Thom blocking ads and any source of revenue. I've done a considerable amount of apps over the last 4 years, and iOS still outpaces android 10 to 1 in revenue. Why? Just look at the author of this article. Android users are woefully cheap...steal software and block ads.

One more thing. iOS still outpaces android in app downloads as well.
