Area linking in Confluence APP

Is there any way to display the area links in the Confluence app and not just in the browser?

@Michael Atzmüller I'd love to help. Can you provide more details on this question?

@Andy Gladstone Thank you for your help.  We use Confluence Wiki in our company as a Employee manual for some process descriptions. On our homepage in Confluence we have some links to other websites. These links are at the top under the heading "Area Link". But when we use confluence with the app on the ipad and not on the desktop, these links ar not there...

@Michael Atzmüller thanks, I understand the dilemma now. 

Space shortcuts do not appear in the mobile app, only pages within a space. This sidebar section in Confluence on PC/Mac is the space shortcuts - and that is why you are not seeing them on a mobile or tablet while using the Confluence app.

I did look around space permissions to see if this is something that can be enabled/disabled, but it does not appear to be an option.

My gut feeling is that these are not included since many of them would be external links, and when using the app, Atlassian wants to keep you in the app and not send you to an external browser app to access the location of those links, so they have not included it in the mobile app (yet).
