Introducing Better Open With

What is Better Open With?
Quote:

With so many cool Android apps, Better Open With saves you the hassle of having to choose only one default app handler when you click a filetype, and without having to choose between "only once" and "always"!

Created to mimic Android's default "Complete action using" dialog, Better Open With shows you a visually similar popup screen when you choose to open a link, an image, a PDF or any other filetype - listing all possible app handlers as you normally see.

What's different is that you only see the popup dialogue for a few seconds (5 seconds by default, but customizable), allowing you to choose an app handler if you want, after which it will automagically open it with your preferred app!

Why use Better Open With?
Quote:

Better Open With is handy if:

  • you switch between browsers, but usually have one preferred app;
  • you prefer using one app to view your PDFs, photos and other files, but sometimes use another app to edit them;
  • you usually want video links to open with a player, but sometimes you want to open them with an app that lets you download the file, and maybe yet another that will Chromecast it;

Personalization Options:
Quote:

  • Set countdown time for each file type
  • Choose between grid and list view
  • Set text size, show only icon (no text) and other options
  • Light and Dark themes available

Better Open With is completely free, and no ads! No permissions requested!

I need to see it on my own eyes... This app might be something what I've been searching for months!

Good job and a big cheer for free software!

Just noticed this on google play. Very interesting. Anyone tried this out yet?

My Samsung GS3 default was to not make the choice stick, but my LG G3s' default is to make the choice stick and I have to uncheck the box each time. This could be my solution.

Why do you prefer an Xposed Module? What extra features can it get if this becomes an Xposed Module?

Please dont get me wrong, I appreciate the hard work you have put for developing this app. Xposed Modules has certain advantages e.g. can be installed over different devices and configurations if they support xposed with less chances of error or FC, smaller package size, feature can be turned on/off w/o uninstall etc.
