[BUG] Link Handling Inconsistency Between Web Site and iPhone app

When viewing a cache description (e.g. http://coord.info/GC37QVN ) on the iPhone GC app that contains an "implied link" (that is, a link not expressed as an HTML description <a> tag but rather just as a URL that has been auto-magically converted to "Visit Link" by the web site) the app does not convert the URL to an automatic link like the web users experience when visiting the cache page from the browser. The app only displays the URL, but you can't tap on it (or copy and paste it into Safari).

 

The only way around this behavioral inconsistency seems to be to re-encode the cache description as HTML on the website itself (which can be troublesome for some CO's). If CO's don't do this, it creates a troublesome and sub-par experience for the app user.

 

Hope this hasn't been reported before. I searched the "forums" but didn't find anything similar. [:D]
