Getting ads on your Android Phone?

Getting annoying ads on your Android / Google phone? Quite a number of ads are using push technology to push ads to you but never asked your permision to allow these ads to be placed on your phone as NOTIFICATIONS! When I started getting these adsas Noticiations, like an ad that was important (how annoying), I did some research and what you really need to do is find the aaplication you downloaded and uninstall it. I used a program called Addons Detector which I downloaded to my phone: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.denper.addonsdetector&feature=related_apps . Allowed it to run and install. I then selected Scan from the big middle button, then selected AddOns. What next came up was a list of applications which use addon programs. Most use Googel Analytics (that is ok at the moment). I was looking for any program with "AIRPUSH" which is used to send ads out to customers (seems to give the vendors lots of money). Which app was it? SpeechTrans by Nuance was the BIG culprit, so I uninstalled it by hitting the home button, settings button, manage Apps, selecting the program and hit UNINSTALL. Shame on Nuance for doing this push ad to their customers!
