Why can’t I stay logged in?

Super simple app interface.
Which is fine.
But the reason it drops from 4 or 5 stars to a 2 is because my login doesn’t persist. It behaves as if I am a brand new user every time app opens. That might be fine on a desktop/laptop web browser. Bit in a mobile experience? Unacceptable.

I’m deleting this app, and just going back to using Chrome.

Does what it needs to do

IMO it is not a problem that the app opens a web View for you to interact with discourse itself. Discourse provides such a solid mobile browsing experience anyway that building a native app which would improve upon what the mobile web version does would require a ton more work than most people realize. I think that managing notifications and providing a unified location for accessing the discourse instances that you follow is a perfect sweet spot for this app and so far it has served that role well.

Ditto: does what it needs to

There’s another review out there about how this does what it needs to do, handles push notifications and offers a central places to access different instances. They’re right. I’m giving 5 stars to offset some of the other bad reviews. This app deserves better.
