Better Open With for Android is a unique and useful app handler that helps you decide which apps to use when opening a file or launching an action.
Better Open With is one of those apps we all could use. We all have multiple apps that essentially do the same thing and often have trouble deciding which one to use on the fly. If you want to open a picture, which of your many photo apps do you choose? Need a web browser? Ok, but you got 6 of them and can never seem to pick a favorite and stick with it. Whatever the scenario, Better Open With will help you select from the apps you have and decide which one will best fit the job any given moment. The app accomplishes this by giving you a list of all installed apps that perform similar functions. So, for example, if you want to play a video, Better Open With lists all your video apps so you can choose the one you want, fast and easy.
The app functions quickly for the most part, but occasionally hung here and there. I loved how when the selection menu opened, there was a little setting icon that launched an interface menu. From there, you can pick which apps to use by default at all times, which will launch automatically after a set time, or just choose to leave the entire list open until a choice is made. It’s all very intuitive, user friendly and can be customized to your liking.
Better Open With is a great little app. I’m glad I had the chance to try this one and find it very helpful. For sure I’ll keep using this one.
