How can we improve the AOL App?

Web browser links

The links in your web browser don’t work. Very annoying.

    My mail links won’t open. I checked in settings and I don’t see any way to fix it.

    I have an iPhone 8s+ and I agree, it’s very frustrating when you get an email with content that peaks your interest and you can’t get to the information, no matter how many times you tap on the link! So how can I surf the web from this AOL app? Or can I?🤔

    To the developers, I think the issue is when the webpage wants to open the link in a new browser window.
    Either you have all email links open to safari or you find a way to have multiple browser tabs.
    I think it’s much easier to open in Safari.

    I don’t know if part of your design is for security purposes, but it should be the user who is prudent in what they should and should not be opening.

    Not only do some links not work, it would be great if I could open some links in Safari. That’s a work around, but also makes me want to use AOL more if I can keep my web pages in safari where they’ll stay put, whereas in AOL they might close out because I’ve been out of the app for a while.

    I’m so tired of clicking a link in an email just to find I can’t access links in the page opened up by AOhell’s “browser”. AOL, you’ve been around forever, you haven’t figured out how to make a web browser work?! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    I am unable to open several different web links on certain emails such as Brad’s Deals and Troypoint. It is very frustrating.
