Blokada 5.9 for Android

This update brings some changes to blocklists. First of all, we are testing out a new default blocklist, which now is OISD. Let us know if you notice any problems with the adblocking in this version.

Furthermore, based on your feedback on GitHub, we’ve added two new blocklists: The Block List Project, and Spam404. We’ll describe those more once we get closer to the stable release.

Other updates

As for Google Play, we are still working for them to accept the Networks update. As to F-Droid, they already accepted our newest update, but are having problems with some updates with various apps not showing up, so we hope they can fix it soon. Stay tuned.

The recap

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!

Isn’t Oisd Basic too low list as default one? It has not even 100k of entries. Full list has over 450k and blu energized (with it’s false reportas) around 200k.

That’s what we’re testing. Let me know how it works for you.

OISD is still not blocking ads from pubads.g.doubleclick.net, I had reported this previously in 5.8 beta. I know this doesn’t make sense if you are using the non wildcard list, as the developer has shown this pubads.g.doubleclick.net on the list. I have tested back and forth with energize blu , adaway, goodbye ads, steven black, they all block this ad site by default.

This sounds like cache issue. If you tried to uninstall and install this blocklist, would it be possible for you to try clearing app data?
