Airpush! A bloody nuisance they are.

Need to figure out which app did you install recently, that is the culprit. Uninstall it, let the developer know that airpush is disastrous and let them see their downloads drop!

If your handset is rooted, you might try Ad-Away to block those pesky adverts. And its open-source and available on Google Play.

  • It was removed for violating section 4.4 of the Google Play Developers Agreement, but can still be downloaded at F-Droid. Also, the code link to it is broken. – Zackary Aug 13 '18 at 17:45
