Who needs an ad-blocker for iOS?

Since the official release of iOS 9 in the App Store have intensified an ad-blocker. Here they only lasted in top shop short: some gone, others just do not “off” and remains only for a narrow audience of users. Why did this happen?

Probably not Apple intentionally popularized a new feature of iOS 9, so as not to deprive the majority of sites on the Internet earnings on advertising via banners. Only a few days ago, on November 19, media holding Axel Springer sued the ad blocker Blockr, because it considers that the activity of the application on the websites of mediaconcern illegal. And this is only one of several cases.

Now among the most popular in the App Store there is no app for blocking ads (at least in English). For unknown reasons, users prefer not to download such ā€” perhaps due to distrust of the developer and safe for your personal data.

Largely a big role in this situation was played by the developers of applications. For example, the Peace only blocker was the leader among paid apps, the developer removed his app from the app Store. He felt that it was wrong to deprive the company of honest earnings.

So now these programs are low ā€” but if I do it only for specific websites.
