    Three times now I have been cruising the Internet and then without warning my iPad Air 2 would jump to the App Store. Some type of game would be selected on the display. Long time iPad user and have never had this yet it has happen 3 time in the last 24-48 hours.

    Always happens on photobucket links and on websites where you link to top 10 type story's for me!

    Photobucket seems to always be betting apps.

    The other one could be anything!

    Apple should be able to stop these automatic links somehow!

    One website even linked me to buy there app from someplace other than the App Store but it looked exactly like the App Store!

    I am thinking it could be some kind of bug my Air 2 picked up. Not sure what is going on but it has never happened to me until the last few days.

    Others must no be getting the same.

    Apple blocked this behaviour a while back but the advertisers found a way around it. Roll on iOS 9 and the inbuilt ad blocker. They have only themselves to blame.

    Yes this happens to me from time to time. Very very annoying.

    This is a low life advertising behavior if this was deliberate.

    Fits in perfect with today's world.

    Incredibly annoying, borderline infuriating depending on what you are doing. Distractions like that bother me more than most people I think. :)
