Wow!!! I dont review a lot of apps, but this one helped me so much!!! I've been getting pop ups for such a long time and it was so irking and annoying - but I didn't want to factory reset my phone, and then, I stumbled upon this app. As I went through the app's security concerns, I found an app with no name, icon or whatever. When I clicked on it, I saw a bunch of advertising companies and stuff. This app not only showed me where it was, but allowed me to directly access my settings so I could delete it. I am quite happy and pleased to say I haven't had any pop up ads since then. Seriously, great work. I dont know what I would've done without this app.

It's Fair. *When I click on About, it's a link for an app ad, it's not info about this app, bummer. *I will clear a notification by clicking on the app (which shows 999+) listed in the Notification Statistics. It did clear the 999+ entries. But the when viewing the Statistics list, the app is still listed showing 999+. "This app needs an improved method clearing Notifications.

Made mo difference. Even allowed pop-ups when I was using my phone to NAVIGATE, thereby blocking the screen and upcoming turns!!! AppBrain asked me to elaborate: Since I uninstalled their app, I have seen NO difference in the frequency of pop-ups - the app does not do anything. It even kept allowing pop-up ads while I was using my phone to navigate. The pop-up would block nav screen, so you could NOT see it, forcing you to look away from the road to find the "X" to close the pop-up. DANGEROUS!
