    I would like some advice from other administrators and even from OpenDNS on how to manage the ever increasing flow of domains being hit via application on mobile devices.

    Given that some of them are domain for ads within apps, my main concern is that most of them are not tagged by OpenDNS and can fall though the crack in filters.

    Since its past 30days this is my only way to comment.
    Yeah I am well aware of how OpenDNS works.
    I should have specified that I am talking about when the phones are on WiFi at home.

    Its just a cray amount of CDN's

    As long as the mobile devices are using networks you own and control, you can manage this by your OpenDNS settings. OpenDNS is a service for networks you own, not for your roaming devices in other networks.

    There may be apps for certain devices which allow access restrictions based on domain name, URL or keyword or whatever. The most easiest thing however is to maintain the hosts file on those devices to block certain domains. You often have to jailbreak those devices (especially Apple ones) to get access to the hosts file.
