I never thought I would say this, but not everything I want or need to do online should need a separate app to do it. We recently had a power outage and in order to view whether the outage had been reported, what area it encompassed and how long until the expected repair, the electric company insisted I download their app to view the information. With 23% battery, nearing my capacity (awaiting new IP6+) and nearing my data limit, this infuriated me. The only time I would need this app would be for a very few times a year when we have outages. I am not objecting to the option of an app, but withholding what may be critical information should not depend on whether I download their app to view. Anyone else tired of not being able to just view something online without the nag screen to download their app?
