So if you know me on here, you know I rely heavily upon visual aids, i. e. pics, videos, memes, gifs, etc in my answers. It's all part of the greatness that is WhiteSteve😜
One of the things that drives me absolutely nuts is being signed out of GAG if I open a new tab on Safari (the internet app on the iPhone), even for a second. Usually I have a response typed out, then I'll open a new tab to find the appropriate pic or video to accompany the answer, then when I go back to the GAG tab, the site reloads (only SOMETIMES, maybe 60% of the time) and I have to sign in again and I lose the epic novel I just wrote. And I can't copy what I wrote because I'll lose it when I copy the link to the file I'm including. The only fail-safe option is to copy and paste the written portion on my Notes app, add the file address, then copy and paste the whole thing onto GAG, and that, my friends, is a horrendous pain in the ass.
So I'm sending out the Bat Signal to @Tolga , @Sparrow24 , and any other tech wizards that might read this: firstly, is this a GAG problem, or does the iPhone just suck? And IF it's a GAG issue, is there a way to fix this? I'd imagine GAG has something in the program to automatically sign people out after a certain time limit or a specific action. Is there a way to allow switching between tabs without being signed out of GAG? Maybe allow like 15 minutes before automatic sign-out?
I suck at all things technological, so any help/advice is appreciated! 👍
PS: I don't know of GAG has an app or not, but all of this is my dirty secret, so I don't want a permanent app visible on my phone, I only intend to use Safari.

Dude, your savior is here.
The problem is in your safari (and somewhat in iPhone).
When you open a new tab on safari it doesn't handle the previous tab's data since it has to be saved on RAM and that's taking load.
So when you switch to the previous tab it reloads.
And probably you have turned off the keep cookies option, you can turn it on and you won't have to sign in again. But maybe the page reloading problem would still persist. And you have to type it again (because page loses all its temp data when it reloads).
Simple thing, use chrome.1
