IOS9 which content blocker?

now that IOS9 is released. Any thoughts on which content or ad blocker is best?

There seems to be quite a few of them and none I've heard of...

Here’s the current list, in alphabetical order:

1Blocker, from Salavat Khanov
Adamant, from Cory Bohon
Blockr, from Tim Poller & Arno Appenzeller.
Crystal, from Murphy Apps.
Freedom, from Zach Simone.
Purify, from Charismatic.
Silentium, from the Silentium team.

I'm using a combination of crystal and peace(which didn't make your list, but it's too grossing in the App Store right now). Works unbelievably well.

If you wanted to just pick one id go with Peace.

Marco pulled Peace (IMO was bullied into pulling it) - go with Crystal.

He wasn't bullied, he just didn't feel right making a product that blocks all ads. When you run an ad blocker, you're making a conscious decision to deprive the people who make the content you consume of income. That's not a long term strategy.

There are many good security reasons to block ads, but that's better solved in the way that adblock plus did it on the desktop, where they block the ads that are actually annoying or dangerous and let the rest through.

For what it's worth I use Firefox and ABP on Android.
