This problem is only occurring on the iPhone 4S - iPhone 4 is fine. We were hoping iOS 5.1 would fix the problem but it hasn't. The problem is very easy to replicate but I have been googling and can't find any discussion of it. To replicate:



1. Launch itunes and navigate to any random page.


2. Close itunes (not kill, just press Home/close button), open Safari, and click this link to our app:


itunes opens to the previous page that was just open, not the Directv app which we are trying to direct the user to install.


We had tried loading itunes instead of the app store because we are seeing the exact same issue with the app store. itunes seemed to fix the problem for a while, but not it's behaving the same as the app store. Very strange.


I tried posting in the phone and app store discussions but got zero reply. Any help or insight on this issue would be massively appreciated. I know we can't be the only ones experiencing this problem.





iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1
