AirPush Detector

Do you have ads in your notification tray? Eww! Get rid of those today with AirPush Detector.

After installing AirPush Detector, just open it and refresh its list. It’s quite a simple app, and will show you that you are either clean or a list of apps that have airpush ads included in them. The next step is also quite simple: uninstall the offending apps. They shouldn’t be using AirPush; the notification bar is not a place for their lousy ads.

The final and optional step is to email the developers. Tell them AirPush ads aren’t tolerated, and that they should ditch the ads as soon as possible. AirPush Detector is a great way to end the constant annoyance these ads bring.

Price: Free!

Version discovered: v2.1

Requires: Android 1.6+

    I have used AirPush Detector and it finds nothing but I still get the adds in my notification bar. I even opted out of it but still they are there. I love Android but I will go to something else if this does not get resolved soon.
