On my last question, I used markdown to link to the larger versions of the screenshots. When you tap on the image the native OS browser opens to URL. Then when I return to the app, I have a WebView waiting for me with the thumbnail/smaller version loaded from the image URL in the post.

I like the feature that enlarges the image on tap, especially when the image is being fit to the screen. But if the image is apart of a link, can the WebView not be displayed since the browser is loaded? Or present an option to follow the link, or expand the image?

Using v0.1.39 on Android 4.3

Thanks for reporting this. Version 0.1.41 makes it so that the in-app zooming functionality now only shows up for images that aren't wrapped in anchor tags.

I must be raining on the 0.1.40 parade. I'm still getting the opening of the image inside the WebView when I return to the app with 0.1.40. – Steven V Sep 24 '13 at 19:38
Oops, I've clearly not had enough coffee today, wrong version number! – Kasra Rahjerdi Sep 24 '13 at 19:43
(assuming you're in NY) Not enough coffee by 3pm? That's a long day... – Steven V Sep 24 '13 at 19:46
I'm clearly not taking advantage of our latte machine with complementary training from Joel Spolsky – Kasra Rahjerdi Sep 24 '13 at 19:47
