Easy Open Link

Open URLs via select and share

Easy Open Link makes it easy to open links from text documents via the share function of many apps. No more cumbersome copy and paste. Easy Open Link also allows you to open several links at the same time.

  • Roughly select the URL(s). It does not matter if the selection also contains additional text or white spaces.
  • Press the "share" symbol.
  • Select "open link"

The share function has become a common feature in more recent versions of Android. This app requires Android 1.5 or newer, but is most useful with Android 4.0 or later.

The app does not add an icon to the launcher since this is not necessary. The complete functionality of the app is accessed via the "share" menu. Copyright information can be displayed via the "start" button of the F-Droid app.

The permission RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED is required to check if browser which supports opening links in incognito mode (Firefox 55+, Fennec 55+, Jelly) is installed.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
