Opener fixes this – its a handy app that allows you to open links in the apps that you want, not the apps that iOS wants you to open them in. If you find that you want to view links you find around the web in the apps that you use, Opener is for you.
One of the worst things about the Apple iOS operating system is that it doesn’t let you set default apps for things such as Twitter, YouTube, web browsers and more. If you are browsing the internet, and you find a link to a tweet, iOS will open the official Twitter app or prompt you to install it. However, with Opener, you hold down on the link and tap Opener. Opener detects what type of link you are trying to open, whether it is a YouTube, Twitter or any other type of links, and automatically opens it in the app you want.
Let’s say I’m browsing the internet and I look up a video. Usually when I tap on that video, it would open it in the YouTube app, or if I didn’t have that installed, it would open the web version. However, if I have Opener installed, I can hold down on the link and tap share. Then I tap Opener, and it opens the link in ProTube. You can do this with Twitter, and the over 200 apps Opener supports.
Opener is great app if you use a lot of apps that aren’t the official ones. Often the unofficial clients are better, but iOS doesn’t handle links very well. I really suggest checking out Opener – it’s really improved my iOS experience. Opener is available on the App Store at £1.99.
