Good to know I'm not the only one lol. Just started happenin to me this week too. On Rogers LTE. It would keep redirecting me to random apps in appstore. Tried restarting phone, still happened. Using the new forums app now. Hopefully it's better.

I've been using the app for a while now and the issue is still prominent in the app, especially over the last few days.

App is unusable today. Constantly switching to the App Store with a different app each time.

FIXED! (fingers crossed)

You can thank Evony.com's banner ad for spamming mobile users. We banned them from multiple ad servers. Hopefully this fixes this issue once and for all!

(Let me know if you're still experiencing issues)

Can't seem to find any information about the recent problem I'm having with my iphone RFD app. Once I open it, it jumps to the apple store app looking a various game apps for purchase or download.

Any information or upcoming fixes by RFD on this issue????

This has been happening to me for a while now and it's made me use the app less and less. I can confirm that's it's still happening, just had it redirect me to the App Store 10X is the last 5 mins.

Had this happen today. Opened the app, touched on the "forums" button, and auto redirect to the app store.

Wowzers, this is a nasty ad bug. Though it was fixed twice!

Fix in progress......

Is RFD making money from bouncing people to these app screens? I'm curious as to why it didn't do this before.

I would not be surprised if they are getting some form of monetary kick-back for each redirect. Can't even view forums via the App now... instant redirect to App Store as soon as I click forum button. Oh well, back to viewing RFD the old skool way.

Haven't seen this at all on my iPhone using the main RFD app. Outside of the issue where it would scroll to the bottom ad right away my experience has been Ok.

Odd.
