Slow Redirects

Is there any way to speed up redirects? I have a custom redirect that sends me to a webpage if I click on the notification. When I click on it, it takes me to the Prowl app, and then 10 seconds later it takes me to the webpage. This is kind of slow for what I need to use it for. Is this normal behavior?

This. Exactly this. I mentioned the exact same problem a while back but have not heard back. Would love to have someone look into this.

I want it so bad that I spent the time today to create a clear video of the problem:

I'll also make a new post sharing this video - hopefully someone will see it and be able to resolve this finally.

I have the 10s freeze too. No delay with "ask before redirect" enabled. iPhone 5s, IOS 8.4.1. No freezes/delay with Prowl 1.4 on an iPhone 3GS, IOS 6.1.6.

I found a workaround using the the url-Parameter of the Web-API: ... =remote://

This starts the on my iPhone nearly instantly.
