This is not a programming question but a usability one.
News site example.com has an annoying habit: when I follow a link to an article, the site first displays a pop-up saying “come use our app instead!” So I did, but article links still open the web browser, and still bring up that pop-up.
I’d like to file a bug with the app developer. Could the app have been designed to consume all URLs beginning with
http://example.com/? (Otherwise I’ll complain to the web site designers.)
