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

*** 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)
