    iPhone 5.
    The App Store opens spontaneously and it takes me to candy crush download page while browsing websites.

    I'm pretty sure it's just iOS 7. It's crazy annoying.

    I would call that unethical undercover marketing by whoever sells candy crush saga. They should be kicked out of the app store

    That happens because the site you're on has a popup ad that redirects you to the App Store. I see it most often with Candy Crush, but have seen it with other silly little games as well.

    I will never play Candy Crush because of this, and any other app that uses these redirect ads goes on my blacklist as well.
