DN mobile app - when?

    This is my exact use case. And every time I open it, Safari asks me to log in with my saved password. I click ok, and them on every new post/page wants me to login again and again and again.......

      Same here. It's so frustrating...

      +1 Nice to have this propt on the first visit, but the current buggy mess is just annoying.

      I e-mailed them sharing this as I’m also experiencing that. I’ve also asked for an api token so I can make my own DN app (and possible share) But no answer.

      I kind of understand why. if people start making apps, that work better than just coming directly to the website, people will stop seeing ads and job listings, and they may not want that drop on the number of visits.

      Just assuming.

      Use a better browser than safari then :)

      Safari is to apple users what Internet Explorer is to windows users IMO - something you use to download firefox or chrome.

        What about the reading list? The keychain? The iCloud tabs? The history etc . Should I really change my browser experience because of one single bugged website? This doesn’t happen on any other website, only DN. Not to mention that safari is the default so every link from the email newsletter will open on safari, so that I can then open it in chrome? I really don’t get his “change browser” argument, Next step is change phone entirely ? Yeah because every browser on iOS are pretty much safari with a skin on top.

        Is it too hard to remove the login fields from the dom when you’re logged in?
