    If you are using an app that does require internet access (ie angry birds etc) then turning off your data and/or wifi will stop most if not ALL adverts. Once finished, just turn on the wifi/data as required. Might save a bit on the battery as well.

    you can try ad block app, it blocks all the ads makes webpage crisp and clear.

  • Jeff Fisher

    Use AdBlockPlus - free Android app.

    You might also try airplane mode or disabling data connection only, however this is not so effective for apps that are requiring continous internet access. It's generally useful when playing games

    just don't be scared to root it.... you won't loose anything and you'll get so much in return...

    What do you mean 'Android Apps'? Do you mean free version of apps that are ad supported? Or does your actual Android installation have ads everywhere?

    • Sunil

      Free apps

    • Adrian Bagnato

      If the free apps are themselves ad supported, then there is no way to disable them unless there is some sort of ad buy out, usually for a fee, or a full version of an app, usually without ads.

      Adblock Plus would not block ads in free apps?

    • Adrian Bagnato

      No, the Ads are built into the app.

  • Ahmed Musani

    adblockplus is what you want. download it from the play store. Its free.

  • ha14

    if free applications comes with advertisements then you will have problems in using them if you try to block associated advertisements
