Agree! It is easy to make native apps run in the background and call home with our collected data even if we are not using the app.
In their defense, native apps can be faster so it is okay to have it as an option. Recommending a native app is fine but blocking content to website users unless they install an app is a bit too much.
I completely agree with you! But today, many "native" apps are still built with web-technologies like react or so
