So … I’ve been using the mobile app on my phone because it was a little easier to navigate in it than in my phone’s browser. A little easier to quote, and to bounce between sites.
I just “upgraded” the app, and now it seems to literally dump me into the browser. In addition to the navigation issues i didn’t like in the browser, it also seems to have become super slow. I hit “reply” and nothing happens. Eventually, several seconds later, the reply window opens up.
Also, if i select a chunk of text, the phone wants to treat it as editing a page (copy, paste, etc ) and that menu covers enough of the Discourse menu (quote, and weirdly, edit) that it’s really really hard to trigger the discourse menu. And even if i do, the response is painfully slow.
I don’t know if the speed is related to dumping me into the browser, or is an unrelated problem. When i previously played with both my default browser and the app package of it, i don’t recall the browser being painfully slow.
But whatever is going on, it’s become really hard to interact with this site on my phone. I can read a thread okay, and starting this thread was okay. But replying to an existing thread is painful.
What’s up with that?
