How Reddit No Ads works
Reddit displays a “promoted” post or, in other words, an advertisement pinned at the top of the subreddit you are currently browsing.
While these ads are unobtrusive, they can ruin your reading experience if you tend to constantly switch subreddits. That is where this new tweak comes in.
Reddit No Ads, as its name suggests, blocks promoted posts on Reddit. It is developed by tweak developer kemiss, who is a newcomer on the scene.
Reddit announced advertisements in its apps back on March 14, 2018. For those who are unfamiliar with the advertisement system on Reddit, here’s how they look like in action.
Once you install this tweak, the promoted posts will automatically get hidden sitewide. For example, when I visit the “The_Donald” subreddit, I am greeted by the top posts from the past months instead of pinned advertisements.
Remember, Reddit No Ads can only remove advertisements from the official Reddit client, not the third-party ones such as Narwhal or Apollo. If you use the official client, here’s how you can activate this tweak.
How to block promoted posts/ads on Reddit
Step 1 Open Cydia.
Step 2 Go to Sources and tap Edit, then Add and input the URL of kemiss’ repository – http://cydia.kemmis.info/.
Step 3 Once the source is added to your sources tab, go to the Search tab and key in “Reddit No Ads”.
Step 4 Select the package from the official repository. Tap Install to start the installation.
Step 5 The Debian package is very lightweight and weighs just 2.7 KB. Tap Confirm to install it on your device.
Step 6 Once the installation gets over, tap Restart SpringBoard to ensure the changes take effect.
Step 7 There are no settings or preferences that you have to modify to active this tweak. Simply launch Reddit and enjoy ad-free browsing experience.
