    Popups on Android

    I understand this is an ad supported site but these are way too obtrusive. And I just realized I have no way of posting the screen shot on my phone. Might be able to link to it on Dropbox. But is anyone else seeing these? Something about a speed booster app.

    Re: Popups on Android

    I get them on my Android phone too, but I don't think it only happens when I am on CF. I guess I will pay closer attention. They are VERY annoying. I was wondering which app was the source.

    Re: Popups on Android

    Are you using the mobile view of the site? I've never seen an ad on CF on my Android and I am on it quite frequently.

    Re: Popups on Android

    I get them too. They specifically identify CF as the source. Does it only happen using desktop viewer?...that's what I use.

    Ive gotten them on android before as well, using the normal version of the site. Theyre mobile-specific ads though

    Got it at least half dozen times tonight only on CF while using the full site on my phone. Have never had pop ups before.

    That's what bugs me the most. I've never seen popups on my android on any other website before.

    I'm rooted with Ad-Away installed, no such issues.
