Switching to iTune apps

Hope this is in the correct section??

For the last few days while viewing on my iPad I get redirected to apps store to different apps to download.

Must be a forum issue as currently not happening on any other sites

Strange dont seem to be able to replicate this - perhaps clearing cache might help ?

Hi there whizzer, I too have the same issue. Get quite annoying being redirected to some war game in iTunes/app section. I'm using a iPad.

I reported this to Whizzer via PM it is all connected with the ad for game of wars which sometimes appears at the bottom of the page. It forces the App Store open. I've cleared my cache and it seems to work however something should be done about this

Had this on a couple of sites recently including DW. Proper pain on the iPhone or iPad.

Had a quick google and it is to do with a script written in the adverts. Not sure if DW can control the content of the ads and switch off gaming related adverts?

I've had the same thought I must have been pressing something, it directs to some war game app.

+1 for me! It's happened to me twice so far whilst on my iPad tonight.

I thought it was just a glitch with my iPad, but maybe it's something else if quite a few of us are getting the same issue?... I am not implying that this is DW's fault

had the same problem on AV forums a few months ago and it took them a while to find it and rectify

FYI - I am getting directed to one particular game each time on the App Store called 'Brave Frontier', it just happened again to me.
