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 260 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.
- Previewing links from a variety of popular services using 3D Touch.
- Opening the Google AMP version of pages, which are significantly faster than normal web pages.

"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

Ratings and Reviews
Great for launching apps for certain links
I really like being able to easily open Twitter links in Tweetbot, Reddit links in Apollo, and so forth.
The only thing missing is being able to easily pick from a list of browsers the same way you can pick other apps. Opener makes you choose a browser as default. To select another browser, you have to tap on the current default browser, tap on the browser you want, and then tap on it again. This will open a URL in the selected browser, but it’ll also set it as default. It’s not ideal, but no app is perfect.
🥇AMAZING APP & SERVICE SUPPORT
THEY ADDED MUSI SUPPORT! I can't say enough positive things about the quality of customer service and support offered by this apps developer Tim.
Tim not only promptly responded to my email asking for the app Musi to be added as an option in Opener but even after informing me that my request would not function if added because of an issue on Musi's side. He still went above and beyond by getting in contact with the other developers until he was able to make my request happen. If that's not awesome developer support I don't know what is.
What more could you ask for?
I’m going on 3 years or so using this application, and I don’t ever see myself stopping unless similar functionality is added to iOS out of the box. The gap that this application fills for iOS functionality is an absolute necessity in how I use my phone. Not only does this perform flawlessly in its given task, Tim takes feedback and implements feature requests if he can. Love this application, will continue to be a long time user! Awesome!
