Preface: I love the app and want to see it succeed.
But: It was annoying enough before with the share link that only worked on phones with the app, so I never bothered sending anything to 95% of my friends without the app or iPhones.
Now: I can’t even conveniently share anything without a Waze-style crappy interface with bad suggestions of who I want to share with, and then no record of the message in Messages to discuss the content. I don’t even know if they got a message. Like Waze.
So I take a screenshot when I’m desperate and then the app FINALLY wants to help me share with that 95%, when that’s all I wanted to do to start.
Come on. I don’t want to warn anyone. I want to share the stupid or scary crimes I see with friends who would find them interesting. This app is not yet a real-time crime channel, it’s a treasure trove for idiots being arrested for being idiots.
Just give me a share sheet and let me craft the audience and the message. Otherwise your virality is over.
