Force open in Safari / Chrome from limited Facebook Browser

Hey Gliders,

Not really a feature request / bug, I’ve been sharing a little app I’ve made with / for my mates via Facebook and in all of Facebook’s wisdom they keep everyone on platform in their limited browser that doesn’t present the nice pop ups for my mates to correctly add the app to their homescreen.

Any work around here?

Some information I found. From what I can tell, it’s up to each individual user to change their facebook settings or make sure the link opens externally:

Yeah, cheers.

You’ve stumbled into the same thoughts and solutions available I found too. It’s a real PITA, especially on iOS as it’s more difficult to navigate normally for a user… ahh well. I’ll make a video or two quickly.
