Default What are the best ad blocker apps for iPhones and iPads?

Iíve got an ad blocker program on my desktop computer, and boy is it nice. Iíd like to get something similar for my iPhone and iPad, but donít know which to get. Iíd like to get one that works effectively but doesnít suck up too much power and memory. So I thought Iíd ask you all and read your recommendations. It doesnít have to be a free app, Iím willing to pay a reasonable amount, I just want something simple and effective.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give me.

I’ve used Purify on iPhone & iPad for a long time. It seems to work very well, has no issues and it’s free.

Purify: Block Ads and Tracking by Chris Aljoudi

UPDATE — I see this one now costs $1.99. Here are some reviews (FWIW)

Iíve been happy with Adblock, but Iím no technical whiz. I recently read an article on blockers questioning what countries theyíre based in, and suggested that might be a security concern. The article pointed out that many of the app sellers try hard to keep this secret. Unfortunately I canít remember where I saw this article.

Hereís an article from Consumer Reports that might be helpful:
