Feature request: Would it be possible to allow bookmarklet-like sharing from the iOS app web view?

There are numerous sites I follow that do link roundups that link out to 3rd party sites which then appear in a web view in the iOS app. It’d be really nice to have a ‘share’ bookmarklet that’d allow me to directly share that 3rd party article – there’s a lot of good content I pick up through these roundups, but sharing the roundup itself is not effective.

Yes, this is a great idea. I’m just not so eager to attempt to build it, since I think it’s going to be barely discoverable and few would use it. And I only have so much time to build things.

You interested in a patch if I can provide one?

Absolutely, but this is no trivial fix. Although if you can modify the existing bookmarklet, I see no reason why it shouldn’t work. A simple CSS tweak with media queries could probably do the job!

So yes, it is a trivial fix indeed. Good luck and let me know if you get stuck.
