About this app

Share the current web page when you are in a browser to open with another app!

Did it ever happen to you? You click a link (let's say a video link) and the system does not ask you anything and opens the link in the browser. And you are stuck in a web page instead of watching the video in the native app.

There are 2 options for you. You either watch the video in the web or you remember the name of the video and search it in the app. Well, not anymore.

With OpenLinkWith, you can share any webpage with it and it will ask you which applications to open the link with.

Although the original intent of the application is to direct web pages to apps, it can even be used to switch between apps. Imagine you have 2 Twitter clients in your phone. You can open a tweet in the official Twitter application and then switch to an another app with the same tweet opened. Cool, hah?

Although the problem discovered above is not huge, it is missing in the Android ecosystem. And I couldn't find anything doing this. So I wrote one. :)

If you find yourself sharing the same url over and over, you can use "Add to Home Screen" feature to add your favorite link from your favorite app to your home screen.

I hope you find this useful. Please help me by trying it and sending feedback to me.

Note:
The app uses internet to:
- Send crash reports
- Resolve redirects of shortened links
- Find the title of the link while using "Add to Home Screen"

The application is open source and the source can be found here:

When I updated to Android 12, I was forced to select a default web browser. Since I use different browsers for different kinds of links (eg. work vs fun), this was not a welcomed change. Enter this app. I set it as my default "browser," and it lets me select my preferred browser for every link like before! My only suggestion would be to have a setting to list browser options horizontally like in Android 11, but overall, this app is a lifesaver! Thank you so much!

great way to make Amazon links open in the Amazon shopping app. for some reason it (Amazon or chrome i dunno) doesn't respond to my preferences, and hasn't for a long time. this app is a time and hair pulling frustration killer! so now, when somebody sends me a link to look at, it still opens in chrome but just a couple taps and is open in the correct app. well done!

Sent an email to the dev and he responded within a few days. Solid communication. Unfortunately he wasn't able to resolve the issue I'm having (Amazon for Tablets app) because Amazon hasn't updated the app in quite a while. Was able to find a workaround with it though and now everything is working perfectly. I've also found this app useful for forcing several other apps to open when clicking on their link in Chrome rather than opening in Chrome. Good job, Dev!
