    Hi.
    I have a Galaxy note 10.1 and some app is spamming my notifications with ads. How do I identify which one so I can delete it?
    I do have some free games on and other free apps but I do know which one it is; assuming it's not a virus (can Android get viruses?).

    Try installing Airpush from the Google Store. It will, (should), ID the source.

    I installed Lookout from google app store. One of the options is too uninstall games tha push ads. Worked great. I also installed free virus ptotection called Zoneralert from google store because lookout is only a 2 week trial. Why pay for what you can get free. Big virus for android tabs and phones is called "DreamDroid" and you definitely don't want it. It made my friends phone call all over the world and messed with bank account info on her phone. A very nasty virus.

    I use Dr web lite it roots out any app with adware and sorts it.
