How to remove / block ads on Android?

No body like advertisements. I hate them too. Especially those in TV shows which took more than 5 minutes. Therefore, I seldom watch TV as we cannot do much on them. However, it is not true in Internet world. We are able to remove advertisements on PC. And now on Android phone too.

AdFree Android

Okay, first thing first. Your Android phone needs to be rooted. Check out this post ~ How to root Android 2.2 Froyo with 1 click? Basically, AdFree Android will replace your hosts file. It removes most ads in the browser and other apps. It does this by nullifying requests to known hostnames serving ads. As a result, you won’t see any ads when browsing Internet. And playing Angry Birds in ads free mode too. By the way, some of the Android builds for HTC HD2 already updated with this hosts file. So you won’t see ads too.

Download AdFree Android at Google Play Store here or APK here.
