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 270 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.

"If you find yourself looking to view web links in apps often, Opener is a good timesaver that cleverly uses iOS 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

Mr Isidro ,


Continues to be not only one of my most used and treasured apps, but also one of the most consistently stable. Sadly so many developers get caught up in wanting to make nonstop updates that sometimes can even end up ruining what once was an awesome useful app. Thankfully this developer is one of the few that puts "user experience & app stability" as a #1 priority. Which is why I will continue to rant and rave about this app with as many people who are willing to allow me to introduce them to an app resource that they never knew they always needed. So useful it will make you wonder why iOS doesn't have this feature built in by default.

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.

Clever App with Transparent Privacy Policy

As soon as I learned it could convert Google Maps links to Apple Maps this app became a must-have! Google continues to make it harder and harder to extract an address from a google maps link. It’s a small thing, but turning a 5 step process into a couple of taps was easily enough to justify $1.99. I look forward to finding out what else it can do.

I also wanted to call out its privacy policy. It’s a very short read that spells out what information is and isn’t collected. The policy specifically states it doesn’t log specific urls unless you explicitly send them when requesting support. I’ve started reading privacy policies before downloading any app, and this was one of the better ones I’ve read.

This is worth every penny

I’ve honestly grown so use to having this app. It is so well implemented it only takes a few steps to open in my favorite apps. If I could give any feedback then I would suggest to allow us to select a default app to launch then automatically load that app. I would say something similar to the way the Siri shortcuts app opens then launches an application the shortcut is set to. If you could remove one of the two clicks it takes to open the application it would make Opener even more amazing.
