iOS touch and go ads are disgusting

I'm not sure who thought putting these Apple ads that you can not even so much as brush your finger against to swipe the screen up without being completely pulled out of the slickdeals app into the App Store but they are clearly evil. This app behavior is absolutely infuriating. I hope you are making a ton of money off this. I'm pretty close to just uninstalling the app completely. Shameful.

thanks for the heads up. that sounds like maybe some bad ad(s) are slipping through. either way the the app and ad teams have been notified so someone can look into it.

I'm having this issue as well. Constantly having the app store open up because somehow I must have touched an ad while scrolling. The ads also seem to randomly appear directly beneath my finger while scrolling and this is triggering them.

I continue to have this scrolling banner when using the mobile site telling me I need to use the app. It doesn't get out of the way. Then there is also the rating screen which also doesn't leave me alone even though I filled it out

I also never click through any ads on SD (website which I mostly use).
I just don't trust the ads or module that's servicing the ads.
If it shows a deal from Target, Jcpenny, etc. I'll just manually go to the site myself and find the deal.
