Hey guys, this really is starting to piss me off.

Not only do some sites randomly open the AppStore but Facebook does as well.

Does anyone know of a way to stop it, i can stick Adblock on my nexus, but doesn't appear to be anything for iOS

Happens to me, too. It's isolated to Facebook when I click on links within my newsfeed. It's rather annoying.

Its not just FB, its happening regardless. Its almost like a form of advertising, forcing me to see an app in the store when I really only want to go on the web.
