Chris Lacy, the developer behind the innovative ActionLauncher, has released a brand new app called Link Bubble. It is a simple, yet extremely useful program that will reinvent the way you open links on your Android phone or tablet.
Usually, when you tap a link somebody's posted on Twitter or Facebook, your device opens it in the web browser. Once the web page loads and you are done viewing it, you can close the browser and switch back to the previous app. However Link Bubble wants to make the process of viewing links much quicker. The program, just like Facebook Messenger, uses Android's ability to draw interface elements over running apps to open links without launching the web browser.
When you first click on a link, Link Bubble intercepts it and loads in the background while you can continue using your current app. When it is done, a small chat-head-like icon shows up on the screen. Tap it and you'll see the loaded web page displayed in a compact window.
Link Bubble can load several links in the background and makes sharing and adding a link to Pocket as easy as dragging it over to an icon. You can pick up the free base version of the app from the Google Play Store now and unlock all features later for $4.99.
