Open Link in App

Everyone
173

Ever tap on a link to Facebook or Twitter (or wherever) on your phone, and it opens in the browser instead of the native app? Me too. No fun. This app fixes that.


To use it, after you tap on a link, just select Open Link in App from the chooser dialog box. If you don't see a chooser dialog, but you think you should, go to Settings => Apps => Browser or Chrome, or whichever app is currently handling the link, and tap Clear defaults.

Current supported apps:
- Facebook
- Twitter
- Instagram
- GitHub
- Goodreads


If you're technical, it's pretty straightforward to add a new app. Feel free to jump in! Source code:
