Yes I have, especially browsing DS, occasionally Safari will on its load a redirect to the App Store for Candy Crush Saga- something I already have, but may get binned.

Do you think Apple will fix this with IOS7?

There is a blog that I usually go to but lately it has been redirecting me to the App Store for this candy crush game. I refuse to download it as I can't afford to get hooked on another game.

I've been to a few sites as well that load up the app store for candy crush - i didn't think it was actually associated with the game itself, just the particular advertising.

i do find though that if you hit the stop button just before the site is fully loaded, it tends to prevent anything like that happening.

The blue loading bar shows you how much of the site is loaded. Stop it just before it goes all the way to the right.

I've just browsed the main site and the forums for quite a while without being logged in, and nothing. In fact, I don't think I've ever been redirected to the App Store on my iPhone without pressing something. Genuinely confused by this.

It's never happened to me on this site but there is one blog site that I visit and it happens on my iPod touch but strangely not on my iPad.
