It's happening again, like it did with the Dragon City ads, only this time it's 'Empire of Kingdoms' and I think one called something like 'Game of War'. It's just happened on 3 pages in a row.

I'm on the mobile site on Safari on iPhone on iOS 7.0.

So freaking annoying! Sort it out please, ASAP.

SconeForAStroll Tue 17-Dec-13 08:02:30

Right, that is enough. It is now loading even when I am scrolling through tio.

cake wine please sort it out tech.

Yes dragon city this time. Iphone users if you disable installing apps in the settings menu it turns the App Store off which prevents the ads from opening, not a long term solution I know but it does mean you can continue to use the mobile site until tech fix the issue

I'm having it with Dragon City and Expedia. Also iPhone 4, mobile site.

Aftereightsarenolongermine Tue 17-Dec-13 07:51:05

Please sort this - I've posted in 3 different threads about it - it's annoying me that much. I don't want dragon city - I will not buy you!!

TheOneWithTheHair Tue 17-Dec-13 07:37:57

Me too.

archfiend Tue 17-Dec-13 07:35:05

gamerchick Tue 17-Dec-13 07:32:04

I'm really glad it's not just me.

SconeForAStroll Tue 17-Dec-13 07:31:43

Dragon city here too. sad

NoComet Tue 17-Dec-13 07:31:23

Dragon city, three times on this thread, once on another
Another iPhone 4S user.

Doesn't matter if you're login in or not.

MN logging out is another irritation

danceponydance Tue 17-Dec-13 07:29:36

I've been getting this for ages on my Galaxy S4, I thought it was something dodgy on my phone.

Lorelailovesluke Tue 17-Dec-13 07:28:00

Happening with me too, Dragon city

Masterchuff Tue 17-Dec-13 07:25:58

Happening again with me and dragon city too. Please get it sorted

thenicknameiwantedisgone Tue 17-Dec-13 07:19:51

Yes dragon city here too. It is exceedingly annoying and would stop me using mn at all if it continues.

Please please sort it.

LaurenLaverne Tue 17-Dec-13 07:19:50

Doing it now! Dragon City 5 times in 2 minutes! Grr

HungryHorace Tue 17-Dec-13 07:10:02

It's awful. Every time I change page or refresh I'm back at the App Store. It's driving me mad, and did the other day too with a different game doing the same thing.

MNHQ, please sort it out as it's annoying and unnecessary.

lucidlady Tue 17-Dec-13 07:06:54

Dragon city here too.

CoffeeandCakes Tue 17-Dec-13 07:03:14

Dragon City is particularly bad, but I've also had Betwin (which downloaded an apk file bwinlive.apk), an Asian dating app! and other games open up the Play store.

Eastpoint Tue 17-Dec-13 07:00:50

Dragon City - 3 times when trying to post on this thread alone. Will have to get up & give the children breakfast if there's no reason to stay in bed fsad.

ArtyFartyQueen Tue 17-Dec-13 07:00:04

Ita happened to me about 50 times this morning already. Grrrr!
