About this app

Are you tired of the annoying pop-up ads that randomly appear on your screen and you don't know which app is causing the popup ads ?
AppWatch will help you find the app that is showing the popup ads on your phone.
Here is how to use it :
1 - Turn on the switch "Start monitoring"
2 - Exit the app and start using your phone normally
3 - When a pop-up ad randomly appears on your screen; Open AppWatch, and you will find in the activity history, the latest launched app, which should normally be the app that showed the annoying ads.
4 - Finally you may want to uninstall the culprit app and search for an alternative..

Important notes

✓ AppWatch is not a pop-up ads blocker ( doesn't block ads ).
✓ AppWatch doesn't monitor pop-up ads inside web browsers.

Why does AppWatch contain ads ?
It is fair that the developer receives compensation for his work from clean and acceptable advertising.
AppWatch fights only against the annoying and intrusive popup ads.

I was literally losing my mind trying to figure out how I started getting pop up ads that would show up in the middle of something, and completely shut things down. I did a search on Play Store and found and installed AppWatch, and I have been more than happy with it!! The first time an ad popped up after I istalled it, I ran the check, and found it was a flashlight app I had installed about a year ago!! I happily deleted that app, and haven't had a pop up ad since! Highly recommend this!

I wish I could give this 20 stars!! For 2 months I've been dealing with pop up ads every time I unlocked my phone. This started after the latest Android update. I've tried all kinds of things to get rid of them. Finally heard about AppWatch and installed it. Followed the instructions and when the ad popped up I checked the app notification and it listed Photo Editor as the culprit. I uninstalled it and no more ads since! Thank you so much!!!

tryed 3 other programs to find out why my phone was freezing, and why I was getting so many pop-ups. I used appwatch and in one day , it told me what programs are running in the background, and what was not supposed to be running, and I was able to delete the programs that I thought was good, but turned out to be spying on me and causing all these ads to come in. thanks!
