Block specific types of content on the web with these apps

The World Wide Web is so wide that it has become home to all sorts of content. While many of these are of value, others are unwanted for one reason or another. Fortunately, thanks to content-blocking apps on iOS like the ones featured here, you can better enjoy web browsing without seeing content you’d rather not see. And we’re not just talking about pesky ads here. With these apps, you can do away with specific types of web content: Get rid of Facebook widgets and plugins, block spoilers on Twitter, or even filter out articles about certain celebrities. Not only can you surf the web with less distraction and annoyance, you can also improve webpage loading time and reduce browsing data usage.

K Blocker - Block Kardashian content

K Blocker - Block Kardashian content

furtiv

Enjoy Kardashian-free web browsing. Instantly vanish Kim, Kylie, Khloe, Kendall, Kourtney, Caytlin, Kanye and the rest of the Kardashians from the interwebs.

K Blocker filters out links, websites and photos that contain keywords related to the Kardashian clan.

K Blocker uses the latest iOS Content Blocking capabilities. It integrates directly into Safari, so you do not need to change anything about the way you browse the web. Simply enable K Blocker and you will see how photos, images and links related to the Kardashians just disappear. K Blocker also blocks website URLs that contain Kardiashian-related keywords, so if you accidentally follow a link to one of these sites, you will only see a blank page.

In addition to working in Safari, K Blocker also works in certain apps that use Safari Webkit for web browsing. K Blocker does NOT work in apps such as Facebook for iOS or Twitter for iOS. However, it will work if you access these services via the Safari web browser.

LIMITATIONS: K Blocker is intended for entertainment purposes only. It has been tested on a large number of websites. It will dramatically reduce your exposure to Kardashian-related content. However, it cannot block 100% of the Kardashian content on 100% of the websites. It may also affect the display of some web content that mistakenly identifies as Kardashian-related.
