Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I haven't been able to crash the Android app (yet). But, I'm unable to follow links that are apart of the comments. When I attempt to click on the link, I just get the context menu to vote up the comment.

I have a Nexus 4 running 4.3, if it matters.

Repro on Galaxy S4 running 4.2.2 – TronicZomB Jul 31 '13 at 17:46
and if those links point to an internal question/answer, please display it in the app instead of opening a browser window. – Samuel Liew Aug 1 '13 at 2:23
Yep, we discussed this and have a plan... stay tuned – David Fullerton Aug 1 '13 at 19:04

Version 0.1.2 should allow comments to open links to our network of sites or any links in a browser.

Because of a bug this doesn't work with all links, and also interferes with the comment popup menu. It should work correctly in version 0.1.3.

Wonderful news to hear! Good job on the development! Full steam ahead! – Samuel Liew Aug 2 '13 at 9:08
I had an update to version 0.1.1 when I woke up this morning but this wasn't resolved. Is it coming in a later release? – Steven V Aug 2 '13 at 12:26
Thanks @balpha for the clarification – Steven V Aug 2 '13 at 13:15
Indeed it's fixed in v0.1.2 – Steven V Aug 2 '13 at 17:21
I was about to say the bug made its way back in, but after trying a few more times it seems the problem is my fat fingers on something smaller than a galaxy note... may be time for a closer look at this one? – AnonJr Sep 17 '13 at 17:13
