Adblock Plus, a forked version of Adblock, released version 1.0 of its free native Android app on Tuesday. You can download the app now from the official Google Play store (Android 2.1+ required). You can also download the .apk directly from AdBlockPlus.org and install it manually. If you do, however, you won’t get automatic updates, which are particularly important when it comes to blocking ads (as the sites that serve them are regularly changed). Android users will of course be very pleased with the news, but third-party Android developers likely won’t. Read the full story at The Next Web.
