Add this app to your lists
Addons Detector detects addons used by your installed applications. It has all the tools to find push notification ads and icon ads.

If you are looking for the app that uses AirPush or other push notifications, you can easily find the app and uninstall.

Besides push notifications, using this app is a great way to see what advertising agencies apps use, and what tools they have integrated.

Does the normal scan not detect the spam ads? Enable the notification monitor and you can easily see which program puts a notification in your notification area.

Another cool feature that we added is the live scanner. This scanner scans newly installed and updated apps for selected addon categories and displays a notification if they are found. This feature is reserved for users that have donated.

If you are getting shortcut spam on your homescreen, we've added a new icon ad monitor that should detect that too.

**To support us you can now easily donate through inapp billing.**

** Beta testers: If you want to beta test new functionality join our Google+ beta test group: and follow the instructions to receive beta updates through Google Play. **

*** Known issues ***
Samsung Galaxy 3 keeps talking to me when on my home screens saying folder is open or similar.
This seems to be an ICS/Samsung bug. It happens for some people and also with other apps that use the accessibility service such as Tasker, Light Flow and others.

Try to fix it:
Samsung S3: - Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Talkback "ON" - Select "Settings" from the bottom of the page - Uncheck all Talkback options - Switch Talkback "Off" again - Go back to Settings -> Application manager -> All - Disable Google TTS (text to speech) - Disable Samsung TTS (text to speech)

More issue details here:

We can't guarantee that our results are 100% correct. Sometimes addons, like pushnotifications, are integrated in larger sdk's, and the developer doesn't need to use them, although we detect them. We strive to be conservative about marking apps as suspected, but errors can occur.

    Are you wondering what app is making all those ads show up in your notifications? Run this app, filter for 'Push Notifications' and it will show you the culprit! Now you can uninstall the guilty app to stop those very annoying push notifications.

    Especially like the real time monitor - haven't seen it on any other spam tool. Much more thorough than Lookout which is basically useless for any but the most obvious issues. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it didn't find a system level spam app, although no other tool did, either. Hopefully someone can figure that out in the future.

    A very nice and simple UI. Put simply, it works and doesn't require every permission under the sun.

    This lightweight, but effective app easily gives you visibility into the various permissions and access you hand over when clicking "Install". Required for anyone who enjoys control mixed with a hint of paranoia.
