Issue with Strava Webview for external links

Mt. Kenya


I created a Strava plugin and am facing a severe issue related to open external links.

The Strava Webview has some limitations that make the user experience very bad.

Main issue: The scrolling behavior has a severe problem, especially scrolling down. Instead of scrolling it, it's closing the page. See the video here:

There are other small things that this Webview is causing, like pull-to-refresh issues, the vertical size of the screen, and lack of href target _blank. 

Now that you are launching a messaging feature, this web review may cause problems. Other apps already upgraded to a more modern Webview, or they open the native user browser.

Is there anything in the roadmap to upgrade it? Or at least remove that behavior of closing that webview when swiping down?

Ready, Get Set, Go!
