This right here is why Apple allowed content blockers
First we got (and quickly installed) Chrome extensions that turn every mention of Donald Trump into “your drunk uncle at Thanksgiving,” and every “millennial” into “snake people.” Imagine the headlines: “Your Drunk Uncle At Thanksgiving Bashes NBC Reporter On Twitter,” or “Snake People Investing In Mutual Funds Earlier.” The giggles are endless.
But this kind of maneuverability and free giggles were unavailable on iOS Apple products. Until now. Oh, how the times have changed.
Thanks to Apple’s newest operating system, iOS 9, we can now have content blockers on our phones. It was only a matter of time before we got Chrome-like extensions for certain people, topics, or groups. In the latest shining example, we can now block any and all mention of the Kardashian famly with the K Blocker app. God bless technology.
“Put a stop to all Kardashian nonsense,” proudly states K Blocker, the new app for anyone who's just done with all things K. I couldn’t agree more. Block Kim, Kylie, Khloe, Kendall, Kourtney, and Kanye (guilty by association).
Even amidst all the controversy over ad blocking, this is a truly useful scenario of content blocking. The app makes fantastic claims of how “Less Kardashian spam makes your battery last longer” and “Reduce Mobile Data: Block megabytes of annoying Kardashian content.”
It does cost $0.99 of real-life money, but I think this app will be a hit for those tired of hearing about Kim and her brethren.
