Open in App button at top is INTRUSIVE

1,003 330 February 13, 2020 at 02:46 AM
Ive used your website for YEARS and to display a gigantic 'Open in App' button where the search USED TO BE is a bullshit move.

No, I don't want the god damn App, but YES i want to search so why force me to hit the stupid Open in App button and retrain myself to hit the magnifying glass instead?

This was a piss poor design implementation and I feel you guys did this on purpose to force more app downloads.

PLEASE FIX IT IMMEDIATELY.

Thanks.

Hi FrozENFyRe,

I apologize and totally understand how it could be a frustrating experience.

I really appreciate your feedback and take it to heart. We'll definitely look at how we can better address this going forward. For now, that button should no longer show up for you.

Feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or concerns our app.

I can't get rid of the "open in app" ad. The "x" can't be clicked on. Android 9 Chrome.
