Three dots ‘Edit’ button does not work in Embedded Twitter browser


#1

Hi Team,

Just small bug… When clicking on Observable link posted on Twitter (IOS), openes in Twitters embedded browser. In this scenario the Left hand ‘three dots’ edit link does nothing and does not allow to open or edit a cell.

I have to specifically say Open in Safari for it to work.

You are awesome!

Jim

Yes, we are aware of the issue. Twitter’s embedded web view captures all input on the left edge of the screen, presumably so it can detect a swipe back, making that whole side a dead zone.

(Side note, but iOS Safari supports swipe navigation without this problem. In my humble opinion, embedded web views are a terrible user experience designed to keep users within a native app publisher’s walled garden, and it sure would be great if native apps integrated politely with the web instead.)
