Is there a way to stop the ads in the Android version? I am using a Galaxy S7.

The Notepad++ for Android is an unassociated App that is using Notepad++ good name to get advert revenue.
The Notepad++ team should be worried by this copyright infringement.

Actually it is not just the name, it is using your logo as well. And for a poorly designed to do list sort of notes app.

There is no copyright infringement, since the copyright law is an US law and exists only there. And I would be surprised, if anything of Notepad++ is protected at all. I guess only Don knows this exactly.
As far as I can see, there are at least 5 entries with “Notepad++” inside the name.
The first 4 entries do not seem to have anything to do with the Notepad++ for Windows. Probably the developers just don’t know that there is an already established desktop application with the same name. I would just gently ask the developer of the app to change the name of their app.
The last entry is the mentioned app. But as far as I can see, it is neither a clone of Notepad++, nor is it selled. And its description even says: “This is NOT an offcial app by Notepad++ developer. This is app can run notepad++ code editor (PC ver.) in android!”. The title is not just “Notepad++” but “Notepad++ Sandbox(Code Editor)” and from the screenshots one can clearly see, that it is not a native app (cursor, design, mention of “Sandbox”, etc.). That’s not that nice, but I don’t think that anyone there really wants to harm the “real” Notepad++ project. Just try to get in contact with them first and clarify things if you think that this is not ok.
Edit: However, using the same logo without any altering at all (e. g. “Sandboxed” under the logo or something like that) is indeed not ok.
