Opener ‒ open links in apps
By tijo, inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Opener is an app that allows you to open links from the web in apps instead! Copy a link and launch Opener to see the apps that it can be opened in, or use Opener's action extension right from other apps! Opener currently supports over 200 apps with more being added all the time.
In addition to opening links in apps, Opener also supports:
- Opening links in any browser of your choice.
- Opening the Google AMP version of pages, which are significantly faster than normal web pages.
"If you find yourself looking to view web links in apps often, Opener is a good timesaver that cleverly uses iOS 8 extensions to speed up the process." — MacStories
"It’s simple, handy, and makes browsing the web a lot easier." — LifeHacker
"...lets you open links in their corresponding app, skipping the annoying Web view along the way." — CNET
"As someone who spends huge chunks of my day tapping on my iPhone’s screen, I skipped my Starbucks latte today and bought Opener instead." — TechCrunch

What's New in Version 1.2.15
- If a URL fails to load you're now able to retry it.
- Improved error handling when Opener attempts to open an app that isn't installed in iOS 10.
- Visual polish.
I followed all setup instructions, and it still opens links in safari.
Usually, I prefer to open everything in safari. The problem is once you open something in Safari such as a Reddit page or a YouTube page it was very difficult to get them to open in another app. I didn't even know an application like this one existed and I'm so glad I read about it on MacStories.
Super convenient and, dare I say, power user-ish.
Opens links in apps, so easy. Couldn't do without it!
