I’d comment if I could read the article. All but the introductory paragraph is blocked by the “Let your friends…” block in portrait or landscape and trying to view in a browser either gets me a blank screen or bounces me back to the app. If I grab the url, uninstall the app and then browse to the url, I get dumped to the AMAC webpage home screen, also not helpful.
