lol about the catch 22 there!

Yes, the approach I suggest does ignore some of the corner cases. We are taking care of these in the app with a auto-generated code thats used to index into a backend database.

Nevertheless, my main point is that apps do not need logins to start functioning. i recently downloaded a yoga app, it has a login wall right after install and open! why???

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
