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 250 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.

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.
You might not realize you're missing it now, but any time you try to "open in" and can't access the things you want, you're missing Opener. It's incredibly simple to use and I use it at least daily. Kind of a bandaid for an otherwise annoying hole in the iOS functionality.
Exactly what I needed!
When opening a link for directions for work it always automatically opens in Google Maps but I prefer Waze. I hated having to copy and paste the link all the time (only because I have to do it numerous times a day). Now I can open it straight to Waze instead!
