Adblock Plus releases ad-blocking browser for Android, iOS

Fred O'Connor | Sept. 9, 2015
Google pulled an Adblock Plus app from the Play Store in 2013, claiming it interfered with other products and services

Adblock Plus is an open-source software project from Eyeo, a company based in Cologne, Germany, that uses volunteers to build applications.

Eyeo gets by on donations as well as money paid to it from "larger entities" participating in its Acceptable Ads initiative, which calls for ads that aren't "annoying," are effective without "shouting" at people and don't hinder the ability to read the content on a page, among other criteria.

In addition to the Android and iOS browsers, Adblock Plus previously developed an ad-blocking browser extension for Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Maxthon and Opera.
