we recently published, detailing Japanese carrier KDDI's moves into pushing ads to the notification bar of Android devices.
Push Ad Detector currently detects the following six ad networks, which Lookout says are ther ones that use the most aggressive push ad techniques.
- Moolah Media
If there is no opt-out link for the network, a user will need to remove the app to effectively opt-out. Push Ad Detector also provides a shortcut to the Application Details page for the app, from which a simple "uninstall" tap can be used to remove the app manually.
Although Lookout is a security company, this isn't a malware detecting app. It could be categorized as an adware detecting app, instead.
