With LinkSwipe, you can configure different actions to be performed when you tap and swipe a link in a non browser third party application.

Five possible gestures can be configured:
  • Default (single tap)
  • Tap and swipe left
  • Tap and swipe right
  • Tap and swipe up
  • Tap and swipe down

For each each gesture you can configure LinkSwipe to do one of these actions:
  • Launch browser (typically for your default action)
  • Share link with an app
  • Open a share app chooser
  • Copy link to clipboard
  • Cancel the link - so that no action is performed
The free version is limited to 2 gestures: default (single tap) and Tap and swipe left. Purchase PRO for unlocking all 5 gestures.

Free version:

PRO key:

Please note that the gesture is a tap and swipe and not just a swipe.
You can calibrate LinkSwipe using the calibration screen. Follow the instructions on this screen to calibrate the time for which LinkSwipe will wait for a swipe before going for the default action.

Features:
  • 6 Configurable actions for different tap and swipe gestures
  • Calibration feature to customize the delay
  • Optional prompt when LinkSwipe is ready for swipe

NOTE: I am aware that this idea is not new and original, but I have opted for a different implementation which may or may not suit you better.




Update 09/18/2014
1. NEW: new action - copy link to clipboard ready to be pasted anywhere
2. NEW: optional prefix and suffix text when sharing links.
3. FIX: Excluded LinkSwipe from recent apps.
4. OTHER: Prompt is now enabled by default.

works well
Yes it is not a new idea for sure. But I like this implementation. Works well once calibrated. I have come to like the prompt actually. Even after calibration there could be slight differences in the timings especially when the phone is under load. The small message helps in this case.

Thanks! I am open to suggestions to make it work better.

Bug fix published - should be available in a couple of hours.

Fixed issue with defaults getting lost. Apps like Feedly and TTRSS should work better now.
