Android App v3.0.2 Forces Chrome - Poor Behavior

anakha 128 26 October 1, 2015 at 09:09 AM
I was going to post some appearance feedback and suggest some behavior tweaks, but I just realized that with one awful (unacceptable really) change, you have rendered this app completely useless to me. Forcing links to open in Chrome is poor behavior and since I have so many problems with Chrome, it prevents me from using this app at all. Please fix this. One of the reasons Android appeals to most of its users is that they can choose things rather than being forced to use a certain app. Please respect this and allow us to pick the browser we want to open links in again.

Without that, this app is now uselesa.

Thank you. I reread my response and realize how rude it sounds. I thought it was an intentional design decision. I apologize and thanks for the hard work on the app.
