Wiki article ads on iPad / iPhone redirect to App Store

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Long time lurker, first time poster here. Sorry to start a topic about an issue, but I haven't seen it reported yet and it's something that has taken out much of the fun of browsing the Wiki..

Now, let me start by saying that I'm not going to complain about the ads or the number of ads. I understand why they're there and I have no problems with them being there..

However, there's one particular ad on the Wiki (not visible), that does something very irritating. I tend to browse on my iPad and every now and then will look something up on the Wiki. Lately, whenever I do, the browser app is pushed aside by the App Store app and it tries to entice me download an app, forcing me to manually go back to the browser app. This cycle repeats with every new page loaded. It gets kind of tedious after three pages..

While I don't mind the passive ads, this one seems a bit much. I'm not sure if you guys can do anything about it (because I doubt you get to choose the ads on the site), but anything you could do to help would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
