I tried to close a question on Meta as a duplicate using the iOS app. The experience was.... troublesome.
I followed a chain of comment and answer links to a post that I knew my starting point was a dupe of. Once there, I wanted to copy a link so I could vote to close.
However, there is no easy option to copy a link on posts. You can:
- Share -> copy, and you get a Great question: [title] [link] piece of text.
- Share -> open in Chrome (or open in Safari), then you can copy the link from the URL
but neither are ideal. That's issue #1.
Having obtained a link via the browser route, it's back to the original question.
To the post options: Close found, and a dialog pops up that asks me to pick the usual options, pick duplicate, and the dialog tells me I am flagging, not voting:
So that's issue #2, I am now confused; was I closing or did I pick the flag option by accident?
Pressing on, I pasted the URL, and hit 'Flag'.
And the app crashed.
I used the mobile web UI to cast my close vote instead.
This was with version 0.1.28 (still the current version as of this writing).
