Use WooCommerce App without JetPack
Since JetPack doesn't have any real function within the App, why not to let all of us use the App without having to install JetPack?
1) Jetpack brings lots of useless garbage to the website
2) Jetpack makes the website insane slower
3) Jetpack should be optional when you want to use the App
Agree. Sales data gets blocked by Remove Woocommerce Bloat anyway. Just need a simple plugin to install when you install the app on your phone; definitely don't need Jetpack.

Damn straight it's a terrible idea. Intrusive Automattic jetpack nonsense.
it really irritates me the level to which Automattic is pushing their stuff in core WooCommerce setup. I use Disable WooCommerce Bloat to get rid of a lot of such nonsense and unnecessary addons, but forcing jetpack use on the mobile app and thus to have jetpack on the website really triggers me.
And for all those people out there who don't know better, jetpack integration is terrible for site optimisation - and there are better tools/setups for *every* aspect of what jetpack covers.
exactly.... same here ! I wonder why do we need to use jetpack just only for this purpose ? Installing jetpack makes the website very slow & i don't need any of jetpack's functionality except woocommerce app using feature.

Jetpack is good for the site admin, but this tool forces the shop managers to also have jetpacks accounts which complicates the setup...
This is a good feature to have, I will upvote

Agreed. It adds a hugely complicated step requiring employees who have no need of a Jetpack account to create one then somehow link the Jetpack account to the store. Not good.
Please create another option. You must know at this point that not everyone loves Jetpack and forcing it on people to be able to use the mobile apps is not going to help you out the way you were hoping.
Just give us another option. Please!
Even a paid option would be fine. I would pay $100 a year per store just to be able to use mobile apps without having to install Jetpack.
Jetpack is a great idea and works great for many scenarios. But there are always going to be a bunch of people that don't want to have to install it to use your apps. Those who never installed Jetpack and have great working stores already are not going to want to install something else just to use an app.
I know you can see the other apps coming out that try to do the same things as your mobile apps without Jetpack.
There is a huge market out there for people who want to use your mobile apps, but won't install Jetpack to do it.
Instead of only offering this one option, why not create another. Forcing people to install another app just to use a mobile app is the main reason some people won't use the app. They think it is shady. Develop a different option for those who do not want to install another app.
I think there should be another option too. I would rather pay $100 yearly to be able to use the Android app without having to install JetPack.
What’s wrong with Jetpack though? Please explain
How come you don’t like Jetpack?
Agreed! No one wants Jetpack. Especially if you’re FORCED to use it.

This was a terrible idea, remove Jetpack from the WooCommerc mobile apps straight away...
