    [Moved to Android Central Apps feedback subforum for the specific question.]

    Well, I just installed the app on my secondary phone to check, and it logged in fine using my site password. It didn't even ask for Social Media credentials or link-up.

    Many sites give you the option of using your Facebook or Twitter accounts to create an account and log in, but it is not necessary. Just select the normal log in option.

    I never use social media sites.

    See the app finally put Google in.
    It says Google may not be secure.

    What are we doing from the app banking

    Not sure what you mean by "app banking," but you can log in with your own independent account or use one of the other options. If you use the other options, I'm pretty sure it'll treat it as a new and separate account from your existing one. Since it's against the site rules to have more than one account here, I suggest not doing so. If you are wanting to switch log in methods, then I would talk to the mods to make sure it is done correctly without you getting an infraction.

    I think that's what quite a few platforms do. My Fitbit app even gave me that option - actually, I think that's one of the only times I've chosen to use Facebook for creating a new account elsewhere.

    But as others said above, it's not necessary. I think some platforms assume that lots of people have a FB account and want to just log in and start doing their thing on the new app right away - so they offer to log in using FB.

    I have used the Android Central app from the time I joined. I've never had to log in through social media. I only checked out the site through my browser early this year after being a member for over 5 years. I greatly prefer using the Android Central app.

    I've installed and uninstalled the app, myself. I prefer the richness of the Desktop site in Chrome, with all of the features so easily displayed and utilized. I don't like using Mobile View at all, and I keep tabs opened specifically for the threads I use the most, like the Bucket List thread, or others that I'm really active in.

    It's not to say anything against the app, it's just my personal preferences, especially since I work from four different devices.
