open external app links embedded in app with a web view

It would be better if links were opened inside the app in a webview instead of going to Safari.

    Hi Adam!

    Thanks so much for your suggestion. Our development team investigated this at the time that we started looking at creating the "More" Menu in the app. During our research, we found out that allowing outside links to open in the app blocks Apple from being able to verify whether the content meets the requirements for its Parental Controls. For that reason, we open the links in the browser to avoid the app being rejected from the app store or being labeled as a 17+ app. If that restriction ever goes away, this is something we could consider! Thanks so much for the feedback-- it's awesome!
