Keeping the adblocking rules up to date

  in Blog - September 15, 2015

The adblocking rules are the most important and most valuable part of every iOS 9 adblocking app, Vivio is no exception. We decided to manage and store the adblocking rules on our servers.

Keeping the rules on the server and downloading them to Vivio has some advantages

  • No need for you to update the app when the rules change
  • We can easily update and manage the rules
  • Your rules are always up to date

Vivio checks for updates of those rules every time you open it (in the next version, the check will be automatic). When Vivio detect new rules on our servers, it downloads them. We tried hard to make the checking and downloading process as efficient as possible and we think we succeeded.
