    I had just put my Lumia 900 on the desk and it was on the Home screen showing my top rows of tiles. It vibrated and what appeared to be an ad appeared above the top tiles.

    I haven't seen anything like that before. I've seen ads in apps like weather.com but it was on the home screen.

    Do apps have the ability to put ads on the home screen? I didn't have any apps running at the time.

    Are you sure it wasn't a spam text message alert?

    No - there was no text message. It really has me puzzled.

    The ad said something about " ... off frozen yogurt - Could it be the Groupon app?

    It must have been a flash message from your mobile operator

    Groupon app sounds like the culprit.
