Anyone else using piHole (or similar domain-based dns blocker) on your network and finding lots of smartphone apps refuse to work?

@JeffGallo I used it not long ago, I didn't have problems at all. Have you add any hosts list?

@JeffGallo I have had pihole running for about a year straight now and haven't had much issue at all with apps or things running. I haven't had to turn it off to access something in a long while. What apps don't work? I found that some games where you have to watch a video to get g e m s or whatever don't work with PiHole usually, but I realized those games are dumb anyway.

@JeffGallo I run into it in some cases, mainly slow apps but overall the experience has been good.
