Thread: 'Not-So-Smart' Hides Those Annoying iOS 6 Smart Banners

    Default 'Not-So-Smart' Hides Those Annoying iOS 6 Smart Banners


    With iOS 6, Apple introduced a new feature that shows ‘smart’ banners in Mobile Safari when you visit a mobile Web site that has an application in the App Store. Not only that, but if you do have the application for the service installed, then it just bugs you to open the application instead of using the Mobile Safari version. The idea seemed like a good idea at first, but when it comes right down to it, they become annoying really quick.

    More and more sites are adopting the smart banner, such as IMDb, YouTube, and Twitter, yet there hasn't been a way to disable the feature for when you prefer using the Mobile Safari counterpart. Some people actually do prefer the Mobile Safari versions, because they aren't crippled by the rules in the App Store.

    Bringing us the ability to finally disable these annoying smart banners if we so choose is a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Not-So-Smart by iOS developer Nikos Lykousas. Once installed, the tweak will completely hide all smart banners in Mobile Safari for an annoyance-free mobile browsing experience:



    Developer Nikos Lykousas says it best, "You can't call something like this "smart" in any way..."

    Not-So-Smart is effective immediately after installation and doesn’t have any options to configure, so you’ll have to uninstall the tweak if you ever have a change of heart for Apple’s smart banners. The tweak requires iOS 6 to install, since any firmware before iOS 6 does not have the smart banner capability. Currently an iOS 6 jailbreak only exists for limera1n devices.

    Name: Not-So-Smart
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0.0
    Requirements: iOS 6
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Nikos Lykousas
    Editor's Rating:  4/5

    What it does is it removes the banners from MobileSafari so you can continue using the Web app in peace.

    I think the guy knows what this tweak does. He was just asking a question, which I'd like to know as well, which apparently you didn't understand.

    Nope I guess I read it wrong. That's what happens when you're in a conversation with someone and commenting at the same time.

    …or the Tweetbot browser. I've been bugging mmi about this for well over a year.

    LinkOpener. It currently only supports a small amount of apps though.

    Those smart banners were annoying. Clicked on X then the banners would come back after entering the website like YouTube again. They're gone now. Thanks tweak

    There are many ways in which to remove adverts when using a jailbroken device however I shan't go into them now as many websites like mmi rely on them as a source of revenue. Just do your research and you'll see how

    Why doesn't this tweak get rid of the banners in Atomic Web Browser?

    I'd also like to know if the app install when one visit's Modmyi can be stopped it's been annoying since ios4-5-6.I've tried the app and don't care for the ad's in it or the cost to get rid of the ad's,I have tried in private on and off ad blocker's but still pop's up when I come to read the new's...

    I don't think he wants to remove the ads. we want to remove the popup when you open the website from mobile safari and it prompts if you want to use the app instead for iOS 5
