I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add support for .csv files

    For csv (comma separated values) I have options to use Excel, ES Note Editor or something else to view them. It will be nice to have this handler too so it is possible to choose edit in Excel or in other editor.

    • enable better open with to open GPX Navigaion Files

      Apps to open for *.GPX FILES (Which are used for Navigation.
      For Navigation I love the OSMAND APP.
      Then an XML EDITOR like QUICK EDIT to be able to examine the GPX File.

      Note:
      With windows you can allocate the fie extension to an App.
      This is the proper solution which should be the job of the Android Developers.
      But untill then .......

      • USB connected devices

        Add option to load apps when a usb device is connected. IE for marshmallow, a DJI controller connected to phone works with Litchi app or DJI Go app, but to switch between apps to launch when connected I would have to clear the defualt app each time.

        • Allow more visual customizations

          Allow user to be able to customize the margins around the pop-up, choose to have labels beside or below icons, and be able to center the icons in their grid. These changes would allow better reproduction of the default dialog on most devices.

          • Give an option to set number of columns in grid separately for each file type & sort the app list manually

            Give an option to set number of columns in grid separately for each file type. Like I want 4 columns during opening a browser, but want 2 column in case of opening a music file.

            (I have some other suggestions that are already in the list here. Those are -

            1. Please give the option to use this app during using "share" option also.

            2. Please give the option to sort the app list manually in stead of alphabetically as it is shown.)

                • Add choice for editing contacts

                  On my Samsung A3 I have two applications for contacts.
                  One of then is "IBM Verse" and the other one is "Contacts".
                  It would be very nice to be able to choose one of them with BetterOpenWith.

                  Thanks

                    • User based custom link opener functionality

                      If link = http://abcd.com/* then open it with A app, If link = http://acfx.co/* then open it with B app. And all apps can be chosen by end user.

                      If we can arrange our rulesets under Browser menu like youtube, twitter, reddit etc it will be 10-star app :)

                      Kind Regards.

                      • Opening a location link shared inside Whatsapp or Telegram

                        When we click on a shared location inside the app like whatsapp or telegram, app cannot see that is a location link and shows us browsing choices like Chrome, Dolphin etc. If it would be possible can you please add a sub section like (youtube or twitter etc.) if the shared location via social messaging apps clicked, run Maps or Yandex.Navi app immediately. If you can do these, it will be perfect on my side. Kind Regards.

                          These files typically are an appointment, so Calendar-app (of choice, like business calender 2) should be associated.

                                    For some reason Spotify doesn't show up on the Audio Stream options. Considering its popularity, I'm a bit surprised. I'm sure it's probably some issue I'm not aware of, but if not, I would love to see the app updated to recognize it.

                                    • Resolve all link addresses in header above app choices.

                                      In Twitter emails, often shortened links are a mystery to the addresses. My former app would resolve them so I could see first where they would take me, before selecting a browser. But this could apply to all links.
                                      My former app worked well on jellybean, but quit on marshmallow 6.0. The name was "App Picker" by Adam Nye but Open Now is far superior, so would like to open links and not be surprised by where they open to.

                                      • Add settings backup/restore export/import option

                                        Pretty self-explanatory. Would be nice to not have to set everything up all over again for each new device.

                                        • Add the ability to use different ringtone and notification applications.

                                          I use the native Android app and Zedge quite a bit for ringtone and notifications. In know there are other options, but I can't even go back and girth between these two workout pulling my hair out.

                                          This is a great application. Thank you for your dev and testing time.
