Make sure "sponsored content" is identified on mobile app like it is on the site? Answered

A couple times recently I've been scrolling through featured projects on the mobile app (Android) and noticed one that had some suspiciously prominent Mike's Hard Lemonade in it. It wasn't until I checked in a normal web browser that I could confirm that these were sponsored content:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Mikes-Marinade/

https://www.instructables.com/id/Tent-stake-marker/

https://www.instructables.com/id/Tiki-Torch-Bottle/

I do appreciate the efforts for transparency on the site and how these are clearly marked as sponsored. It would be nice to get that same transparency on the mobile app - unless I'm missing something, right now there's no way to tell the difference between a regular featured project and a sponsored one.

Thank you for letting us know! I've passed it onto our dev team. :)

We've got our iOS app all set up so that sponsored items are flagged, so Android should follow suit soon.
