    One of the ad-blockers in my arsonal. Crystal is a very, very good ad-blocker. Thank you, Developers.
  • Works even on TMZ... Oct 3, 2016

    By jwoolman5
    Just installed this and blocked all ads in preferences. I'm still in iOS 9. Tried it on the most impossibly ad-infested site I know : the TMZ tabloid site. TMZ has been practically unreadable for years because of all the pathological ads (used to be normal). With Crystal - it was completely readable, no agonizing slowdown and glitchiness. Before, I had to use a separate browser (Adblock) if there was anything I wanted to read on TMZ. Now I can read it within Safari, no problem. Will be testing other occasionally glitchy sites (all those ads are really a problem), but TMZ is definitely the gold standard for testing ad blockers.

    I've used Crystal for over a year, and it has always functioned exactly as advertised. Unlike a number of other content blockers, Crystal's developer has not abandoned this app, but has instead continued to update and improve it (including regular blocklist updates). This latest version also includes the oft-requested whitelisting feature. I really don't understand the hatred that is being directed towards this developer because of the new "acceptable ads" setting. If you don't want to allow these adverts, just turn them off in the app—it's that simple!
  • Seriously the best blocker I’ve used Mar 5, 2017

    By Evanking527
    I used the Firefox blocker before this, and another one before that. Then I heard of this one on a tech podcast, when I think the maker of this app was a guest speaker on the show. I know this sounds silly but I use this one because it actually does what it’s supposed to do... block ads and not let them load and make me jump to the App Store as much to download Candy Crush. I disabled all other add blockers since I’ve been using this one and have been happy ever since.

    Works fine enough for me. Simple, easy interface, about a max of 10 clicks later ads are gone. Don't forget to turn off non-intrusive ads, though.

    Was great, and was actually featured as the best adblocker when apple announced support for adblocking a couple years ago, but it doesn’t seem to ever be updated, letting ads come through, while still getting me blocked from certain sites until I disable the service. Don’t spend your money here

    We can never have too many backup plans when it comes to "this *taboo* subject" on Android. Let's pray that we never see the day that we will no longer be able to "this *taboo* subject" for a cleaner, safer and more enjoyable experience. Peace
  • Restart? Apr 3, 2018

    By ZekeXZ
    There are a number of recent reviews here saying Crystal stopped working, and indeed I confess I came back here because a site I regularly visit had become littered with ads where not long ago there were none. On a whim I disabled Crystal under Safari settings, restart Safari, then reenabled Crystal and restarted Safari and all the ads were gone. FWIW.
  • Best ad blocker Dec 23, 2016

    By BlahQ1248111622
    I've used a bunch of ad blockers, and always worked to fine-tune settings to block exactly what I wanted to block. I tried downloading Crystal when it was free for a day, and found it much easier to set up preferences and custom filters just the way I want. In hindsight, I would happily pay $1 for this app. I should have been using it all along.

    This works fine for me but it does not block when on a certain sites I click on a link for something and a spammy ad site opens that prevent you from going back and having to manually exit it, sometimes it constanly happens

    DOES NOT WORK. I ticked every option listed for ad blockers. Clicked on Spotify, then went to Solitaire. Barely a second went by and i get a large noisy intrusive ad. That not only stopped the music but chucked me out of the app i was using.

    Doesnt block any ads anymore. I have extra blocking lists added as well. App just doesnt work anymore even after the recent update. Time to move on.

    "crystal for Samsung isn't working properly. Open it from app screen to see what is wrong". And, that's about all the app does.
  • Questionable priorities Jan 4, 2018

    By Bcr-abl
    This app developer charged me money to enable ad-free browsing. Within a week they have signed a contract with a company that allows 'certain ads' through their ad blocking filters. What the developer must know that he/she cannot sell a product that promises ad blocking and then, greedily agrees to let the entire point of the app go up in smoke to make a quick buck. I whitelist websites that survive on ads. I can make that decision myself, I don't need the developer to cheat me of my money in the false pretense of letting 'chosen apps' through. I will be requesting a refund on this app that lied to its customers. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

    I installed this to block pop ups and adds. Since installing it I get more pop ups and adds. This app is completely useless. I don't recommend it. I would give it zero stars if I could.

    Stopped blocking ads. used to be brilliant but now I see ads, so annoying! I feel an uninstall coming......
  • A decent option, but not excellent Sep 30, 2016

    By Just Your Usual Reviewer
    UPDATE: I can no longer recommend Crystal at all. The block list is very incomplete, every single ad I reported to the developer in the early days never got added to the blocklist, and now the blocklist hasn't updated in months. Tons of ads get through and the developer seems to have abandoned the app, only now releasing an update that lets through "acceptable ads" but doesn't improve the ad blocking one bit. I was using Refine but that stopped updating as well, so now I suggest Adblock Plus as the best of the free options.

  • Really enjoying the refreshed app Oct 1, 2016

    By TVMaestro
    I just picked this up after the most recent update. I had been using Purify since iOS 9 was launched. Really liking this app now. It's blocking things well without being too aggressive. Purify does a good job but it was blocking embedded tweets when I didn't have social media blocking set up. So far so good with this new version of Crystal.
  • Still works, people are just morons May 22, 2019

    By Yurasits
    Been using it since it first came out. I downloaded AdBlockPlus and Purify as well, stuck out with Crystal since that is the only one that still worked after a year. Today, in mid 2019, Crystal still works. I don’t know what other people are doing that they think it isn’t working. I expect ignorance.
  • It actually works. Perfectly. Oct 18, 2016

    By jaradr
    By far the best ad blocking program I've used, and worth every penny. It blocks ads completely on every page. Pages are so much more readable without having to scroll through ads. I have been waiting for a white listing feature, and now that it's here the program is perfect.
  • Works great Oct 1, 2016

    By Nolander007
    Crystal works perfectly. I have been using Crystal since day 1 and it keeps getting better and better. There are many ad blockers out there and I have tried a few others, but I haven't found a reason to use anything else than Crystal.
