Peace, The Top Selling Ad Blocker, Removed From App Store
Only a day after the launch of Apple’s new mobile operating system, iOS 9, a number of new applications aimed at blocking ads shot up to the top of the App Store’s charts. One ad blocker called Peace, from Instapaper founder Marco Arment, soon became the No. 1 most popular paid application across the iTunes App Store immediately after its debut.
But in a move that demonstrates the controversy brewing around the use of ad blockers, Arment has decided to pull Peace from the App Store, saying it “just doesn’t feel good.”
