I've been reading over this thread, and realized that even on my device with three gigs of RAM, Scan for Adware causes a crash. I'm glad to see basic stuff has been done to keep AdAway at least partially working.
It gets me thinking - if we all want improvements, our best bet is to go to BountySource and start something up again. Originally, I was just happy to have basic functionality work on the latest Android version, but I guess more can be done. I may, if I can do it again when time permits, lay down some cash and try to drive development again. But currently, the main functionality works, yet some stuff could be updated, replaced, and fixed. But I'm not made of money, so I'd need other backers to help. And we'd all have to lay out some requests to as what to fix.
