Adblock Fast is a new, faster ad blocker and the first open-source ad blocker for iOS (http://appadvice.com/appnn/2015/09/adblock-fast-is-a-free-and-open-source-way-to-banish-ads-in-ios-9)!
Just as webpages grew bloated with ads, so too have ad blockers grown bloated with little-used filtering rules and features that sap their speed and hog your device’s disk space, CPU cycles, and memory. Adblock Fast runs an optimized ruleset to accelerate pages more but consume less system resources than other ad blockers do.
Adblock Fast blocks ads in Safari not in other apps. To allow Adblock Fast to block in Safari:
1. press the Home button on your iPhone or iPad,
2. tap the “Settings” app,
3. tap “Safari” > (under “ General”) “Content Blockers”, then
4. toggle the “Adblock Fast” switch on.
To unblock ads, navigate to the “Adblock Fast” app.
To see the effect of Adblock Fast on a particular page, you may have to clear Safari’s cache (tap “Settings” > “Safari” > “Clear History and Website Data”) before reloading the page.

Amazing app I suggest that you get this app it blocks all those stupid surveys and much more 100% recommend it.!!
Blocks google shopping links
When clicking items in google
Shopping results, the plugin blocks them.
Can't go wrong with this one!
so now that Apple has decided it will allow content blockers on Safari with iOS9, there are several available at the app store. I've been using ad blocks on my Mac for years and not having it on my iPad has been frustrating, as anyone who uses Safari mobile knows. I tried the paid apps, and found them very hit and miss. Change a setting and a web site is unusable. Too many complications and the app itself is unusable. This app is as easy as you can get. Download and activate in settings for Safari, and your done. It's easily turned off, if it interferes with a site, and just as easily turned back on. I've tested it with sites I know are full of ads and pop ups, and it's doing just as it says it will. No ads...no problems. The best part...it's a free download, with no in app purchases to the "full" version.
Being a skeptic of things free at times, I checked the developers web site. It wasn't their intention to make a profit from this app. Their other business interests keep them going. So...my advice is to give this a try. Speedier page loading leads to longer battery life and less data usage. It's a five star app! My thanks to the developers
