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.

Other one is 'Game of War - Fire Age'. Just happened again. It's made by Machine Zone, Inc <tries to be helpful>

Please make it stop!

I just clicked on this thread and boom! I was in the App Store. Ironically.

Happening to me too. Over 5 times now. Can't scroll down the page without it happening

Yep happening to me repeatedly with the Game of War one - makes mobile site unusable sad

Going to give up for a bit, impossible to browse at the moment. Have reported my post to flag it up.

It's happening to me too! Thought it was a problem with my phone!

sebsmummy1 Fri 13-Dec-13 15:08:29

Yep has happened to me about five times too every time I scroll

Yes happening ever time Ioad a page. I've disabled the App Store in settings so I can still use the mobile site but that's not a long term solution.

I'm on the mobile sit and it's doing it there too.

DoubleLifeIsALifeOfSorts Fri 13-Dec-13 15:09:10

Yup it's fucking annoying, happened 5 times in the last couple of minutes...

DivvySBird Fri 13-Dec-13 15:10:07

Me too... About 4 or 5 times now!

tabulahrasa Fri 13-Dec-13 15:10:20

Misread the OP as the ap, probably because I can't do nothing, lol

DoubleLifeIsALifeOfSorts Fri 13-Dec-13 15:10:28

I can't even wrote a whole message without this happening

Is it done kind of pathetic attempt to make us buy the app???????

I'll give it one last go and if it does it again I'm off mumsnet til it's sorted.

Same here. Safari, iOS 7, iPhone 5. Impossible to use the site.

Thank goodness it's not just me. Very, very annoying.

SledYuleCated Fri 13-Dec-13 15:18:51

Thanks Julie, I seem to remember it being sorted quite quickly last time, so fingers crossed it's not a big problem! cake
