Blokada 5.11 for Android
This is quite a big update with a lot of new cool stuff. First of all, we have added wildcards support, and changed the default OISD blocklist to use the wildcards variant. We also implemented automatic refresh of the blocklists you activated. It will happen at random every 2-3 days. We hope all this will result in better adblocking.
Another function you asked about, was to extend the configuration options for Networks. We’ve now added a possibility to force Libre mode for particular networks. This way you can configure networks on which you wish to use Blokada Plus, and others where you do not need this level of protection.
We have also made small changes to the DNS list: we removed Blah DNS since many of you reported problems with it. We also added Dismail DNS for testing.
Just to recap, if you haven’t been following our announcements closely, here are some shortcuts for the newest cool stuff we introduced:
Finally, as usual we updated the blocklists, and translations. We also made some minor bugfixes. More in the changelog.
Keep the feedback coming, and enjoy using Blokada!
Remember that using Blokada Plus or donating is what makes it possible for us to keep improving the app. Thanks!
