Don't Force us to use the mobile app
As many have said on this forum, iPad's are not "big iPhones", and the iPad OS uses for Wrike MUCH more closely mirror a laptops uses for Wrike than a phone's uses for Wrike. I mean my 12.9 inch iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard and giant trackpad is bigger than some of my laptops!
Yet, Wrike's website makes it almost impossible to actually get into Wrike, and FORCES you to open your content on the Wrike mobile app. This might be fine for a phone, where your use case might be answer something from your inbox, or changing the status of a single task, but people do real project management on iPads, and the app has so little feature parity with the desktop app or website, that it's not a great experience on a tablet device.
So until the iPad app get's feature parity with the website / desktop app, I'm just asking you, DON'T force people into the app when they are trying to get to Wrike.com. Make it an option sure, put up the pop-up when you first log in that says "hey you might like the iPad app" like a lot of sites do, but let people go on an do their work on the web version of Wrike if they want to.
I have used other browser's on the iPad to interact with the Wrike website for YEARS and it works great, in fact recent updates have even IMPROVED how it works with a touch screen (like being able to drag KanBan) items around finally!
I would love to see feature parity on tablets someday, but until then, please unlock the artificial wall on Wrike.com via Safari on iPadOS, please.....
