    Has anyone figured out how to click emails from Facebook and have them open in the mobile app instead of safari? When I go to safari it ALWAYS makes me log in and have to get a code generated which is a royal pain.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I thought it opened them using the Facebook messenger app?

    It doesn't for me. Just the regular status updates that we get bombarded with everyday always try to open in safari

    So am I the only one with this problem? Or have you figured out how to force it to open in app? I'm talking about the emails I get from Facebook every 10 minutes telling me what my friends are doing.

    I've never gotten such emails - if i have i would have unsubscribed anyways.

    I don't understand what you mean by Facebook emails. Direct messages come through the Messenger app. Any other notifications I receive are in the Facebook app. I don't think that anything opens in Safari.

    Wait, I think I understand what you mean. Do you mean that you are getting emails from Facebook whenever you have a notification, and tapping the link in those emails takes you to Facebook via Safari?
    If so, why not turn off email notifications. Like you said, you must be getting emails every 10 minutes! Just set badge notifications on the app so you can see if there are notifications, and open the app to view them.
