    I'm loving Purify add blocker on IOS9, hated like heck to give up my jail break but it's worth it on my IPad and the split window is pretty neat to. Ok, I'm off to explore for now, add free I might add.

    I upgraded all my iThingies, but haven't really messed with any of the new features.

    I haven't JB anything since, I think, the 4. Just never really took advantage of it.

    I'm using Crystal on my iPhone. Is Purify similar?

    Any speed issues with an iPad Air 2? iOS 8 killed my iPad 2 (well maybe not killed but it slowed WAY down) so, I upgraded to the Air.

    After the upgrade, VPN was killing my WiFi and LTE internet connection. I disabled VPN and the profile and now my 6+ runs like a champ again with rock solid stability.

    I can't tell yet as I have been hitting web sites trying out my new add blocking powers. Safari is faster but that's because of no adds loading. The photo app seems about the same. That's as far as I have got though.

    Purify is 3.99 but so far dang well worth it. I don't care to pay for something that works but it's expensive for an app. One thing on purify is it does have the ability to whitelist a page if you want or need to.

    I installed an ad blocker on 8.4 jailbreak. Guess I don't need iOS9 and still have $4. :D

    I'm missing my JB already but if I ever get an Apple Watch I have to have it anyway. Now I can start keeping up with the Devs to see when they will release a JB.

    I installed it when it was still in beta, but couldn't get emails from work anymore, so I went back to iOS 8. IT sent out an email the other day when iOS9 was released not to upgrade to it because it breaks our email. So, guess I won't upgrade until they have a fix.

    Most issues have been with the iPads I believe.
