"Wow Safari is so fast now!"
-Everyone after they try Content Blocker+ for the first time
Content Blocker+ is a new kind of app. It works directly with Safari to block unwanted ads and trackers, which speed up web browsing, lower data usage and improve the battery life of your device.
Benefits of Content Blocker+
Faster web browsing
Lower data usage
Improved battery life while using Safari
One tap whitelisting without leaving Safari
Content Blocker+ does not track your web usage in order to work. Instead it provides a set of rules to Safari which then blocks the content automatically. Simply enable Content Blocker+ in the settings app and it 'just works'.
Settings -> Safari -> Content Blockers
Content Blocker+ is a universal app and is optimized for all 64 bit devices that run iOS9.

Ratings and Reviews
Does what it is supposed to do, but....
I would like if it allowed you to choose some of the things you want to block (websites, etc).
However, it does a great job of blocking unnecessary ads. I didn't realize the ads were blocked until I restored my phone and hadn't downloaded this app yet.
It had blocked so much junk on webpages that I didn't even realize was there.
Compares well to most
I compared this content blocker, Content Blocker+ with two others: Ad Block Multi and Handblock. I opened a clickbait article on Facebook (Oola, Diply, etc) like "25 people share the moment they realized they wanted to run away and hide because they went into public with no pants on" where each story is on its own page plastered with 30 ads, and tested each of the blockers, one at a time.
- Ad Blocker Multi blocked NOTHING - same as no blocker at all
- Content Blocker+ and Handblock: both pretty good. Blocked all the ads scattered within the story content I came to see.
Block lists and advertisers change over time. I tested these blockers on March 4, 2017.
No Bad Items To List At All
I have used the App steadily for a while now, and have not encountered any issues that I can list. I have not purchased the upgraded full version in order to test every option, but what I do have operational works like a charm.
