    App Screen Popup

    Seriously, WTF is the deal with every page I access from my iPhone or iPad, it sends me to the stupid App Store for some random app. PSU, don't sell your soul like this. A full screen ad is one thing but App Store pop ups is crossing the line.

    We don't run mobile ads. I use the site regularly on the iPad and don't see these.

    It's happened to me a couple times on my iPhone as well but not on my ipad for some reason. A couple times as soon as I arrived at the site it took me to the App Store for candy crush. It does not happen every time for me.

    I wonder if thats on the Iphones side, I don't really know how these things work.

    I've never seen an ad when using Tapatalk, iPad safari or iPhone safari. I don't have Candy Crush on either.

    Tapatalk sometimes hides ads disguised as new forum topics... and when you click them they open the app store. It's very irritating.

    I wonder if that's in the free version. I use the Pro/paid version.

    It must be just in the FREE version, I deleted the free version from my iPhone and the app store opening doesn't happen anymore… I still get a $#@! ton of ads but that's just an administrative issue.

    Also get taken to the App Store on my phone too.

    Tapatalk was was good for me but since the last update it doesn't load new/unread topics. Tried deleting and reinstalling and it worked for a bit but then the same problem occurred

    That's what you usually get with free stuff. If they only have a free version of it, I don't use it.

    It occurs way more frequently in the free version. The paid version will sneak it in ever so often.
