iOS - Mobile RFD App Spam issues

Hi there,

Today I've been hit with many redirects to the App Store from the RFD stable iOS build. Examples of apps that I got redirected to install are Letgo, wish, Yahtzee. Hopefully this can be fixed as you can't enter the app again without being redirected at least to 3 different app sites.

Hey @mike229,
I spent a bit of time trying to replicate your issue in the main iOS app.
- Do you find it happens when you're in the Forums section (forums tab)?
- when you tap, get deal?
- Does this occur when you're in the Deals section (deal tab)?
- Does it happen immediately when you open the app?

Yes it happens when I'm in the forum tab. It happens after I browse through a few threads and randomly. I remember browsing the Freebies section when it kept bombarding me. It does not occur immediately when I open the app but once it does happen and redirects to the App Store, if I go back to RFD app it will launch another random app and repeats.

I haven't had it occur since that day. I believe it must be an isolated incident as no one else seems to have it happen to them (judging on the fact there's no other replies).

x4 redirects to app store yesterday, even from homepage making redflag app unuseable.

*Just tried again after posting has stopped now, hopefully wont happen again.

This has been happening like crazy for me today. The forum is barely useable. I got three redirects alone while typing this post.

Questions:
- What network are you on?
- Are you on wifi when this occurs?
