I fully agree with the basic point. Forcing these "download our app" doorslams is annoying and mostly pointless. I would never download an app for most of the sites I use, preferring the linkable, cross-platform web experience instead.

This is particularly annoying for me because I actually use an Android tablet as my "programming workstation", and so I get these popups on both my desktop service and when mobile.

Of course the irony us that tumblr where this site is hosted has such a pop-up as well... http://imgur.com/uPMetSR
