1Blocker X Is Releasing on April 26, Available for Pre-Order Now

1Blocker has been my adblocker of choice on iOS since it’s debut. After trying out 5 different content blockers available on the App Store, 1Blocker has remained the best in my testing, and visually too. Today, the devs behind 1Blocker have announced 1Blocker X and it is available for pre-order on the App Store. It is a separate app that will cost $6.99 when it releases next week. The pre-order price is 30% off, so you can get it for a one-time payment of $4.99 right now. The old app will still work and will see updates through its rule-sets, but won’t be receiving any feature updates.

Utility apps that run in the background doing their job are interesting to consider when it comes to upgrades and pricing because you don’t really interact with them much after the initial setup. It is also interesting to see that Salavat Khanov is still doing a one time purchase and not a paid subscription which seems to be popular right now among many developers.

We’ll have an in-depth look at the app when it releases next week, but in the meantime, you can pre-order 1Blocker X on iOS as a Universal app for $4.99 on the App Store.

1Blocker 1.1 for Mac Adds Ability to Search and Filter Your Rules

1Blocker — our favorite content blocker for iOS that made its way to the Mac just last month has today been updated to Version 1.1 that introduces a much needed feature in the app — the ability to search for a specific keyword in the long list of rules that 1Blocker ships with. Just like the iOS app, it’s now possible to find that exact rule you want and enable or disable it. This update also adds the ability to filter rules and adds 9000+ new rules to the existing database.

This is a Free Update to existing users and 1Blocker is available for $4.99 on the Mac App Store. The iOS app, which is available for $2.99, was updated yesterday with these 9000+ new rules and bug fixes.
