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
•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.

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.

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

Works well I need just two options when clicking links, and both are available in the free version. Works perfect !

Ted Benz

Great App but having trouble in Firefox and chrome Really great app. Works with most links. However I'm having trouble in Firefox and chrome with hyperlinks. Are they not supported?

Alfonso Beliz

Great app! Especially useful when you have several browsers, like flynx and chrome

Alvin James

Awesome So far so good. Works well. Been looking for this for quite a while

Tyson LeForgey

Absolutely brilliant! One of those things that I just stumbled onto and instantly wondered how I ever managed without it.

Madis Otenurm

Great Much better implementation than TapPath! Not sure if I need it though...

Dan J

Nice app It would be nice if it also works in browser app.

Chris Molloy

Works, With Some Exceptions Doesn't work with TinyTinyRSS app (my primary use case) - displays "Invalid activity" message upon swipe. Does this app only work with browser/WebView-based links?

Scott Hosfeld

Perfect for what it does I've been wanting something like this and other apps just weren't quite the solution

Scott Barning

Great implementation Much easier to use than TapPath. Works great with Link Bubble! I bought the pro version pretty much immediately.

Jenny Li

Sweet app Couldn't get tap path to calibrate well enough.. This app is the bomb.

Praneil Jadhav

Good Good app but does not work with some apps.. Tried that in bacon reader and it didn't work.. Update: Hmm, that's ok then :P another issue is that some apps like Google news & weather, or Appy geek have swipe left\right to navigate between articles,, its a bit troublesome to trigger Linkswipe action.. And have you considered adding double tap or triple tap link action? :P

Jeff Gully

works great! I love having the option to choose which browser opens a link. I had a few troubles with it at first but after enabling the “Show prompt” option (snaikdev's suggestion) I realized I was actually trying to swipe too quickly not too slowly, it takes a split second for LinkSwipe to activate after clicking a link. Once I realized that it's been working perfectly for me.

Jerry Frye

Liking it thus far. I found it easier to understand & use after enabling the prompt option that other reviewers mentioned. Might be a good ideal for that to be the initial default. The only trouble I initially had trying to do that was finding that there wasn't an ability to find the preferences in the upper right corner. I think I'll leave prompt option enabled for enough time to get used to my calibration. Pro version allows the 3 browsers I regularly use and the 2 share options (push bullet & gmail) that I regularly use.

neethu shenoy

Thumbs up! Love it. Worth the pro purchase!

Roger Bye

Doesn't work Update: technically does work with feedly, but not in the way I expected it to work. I expected it to work on any hyperlink within an article in the feedly browser. It doesn't meet my personal needs, so 3 stars.


Gr8 Gr8 work dev. I personally leave the prompt setting on. That way I know exactly to swipe. Looking for more options in the future

edathilsatishkumar Kumar

Works well App works really well. The calibration did help in terms of accuracy and timing of swipes.

Carl Smith

Link swipe Easy to use, looks great...

Margeret Thimble

Good one Works we'll. Saves time.

Jamel Douglas

Maximize ease of use! Works great in tandem with flynx, and any other browser. Share and copy/paste feature great aswell.

Alfonso Beliz

Awesome app and great dev! It is a must have app if you use several broser/apps to open links. It works great with Flynx. Kudos to dev for his excellent response to bugs.

Teja Karlapudi

Doesn't work! Couldn't calibrate. Nothing is happening when I click on set default link in the calibration settings.

Kristen Marcinek

Awesome So much more reliable than tappath, which seems to have been pulled from the store

Fadi Aljada

Amazing I loved it I used tappath before but it didn't work. And now using this awesome app it does exactly what I want thanks developer

Sadath Khan

Needs more Provide at least 2 swipes free.

Sundeep Kumar

now it's working fine good app for those who trade with link ?.

Salvador Martinez

Takes the hassle out of links.

Josh von Schaumburg

Clicking link launches app Every time I click a link, the app itself launches before the action is taken. This is default settings on Nexus6p. Happy to change review if dev can explain why this is happening and fix. Would be 5 star if it worked.

Stuart Thompson

Great app. Use this app constantly. Great response from the Dev when I had problems with it with marshmallow. Just remember to give the app permission to draw over other apps if you are on Android 6.

Jos Hoekstra

If on Marshmallow, enable draw over screen Enable it in Apps >> Settings(sprocket-icon) >> Draw over other apps. This makes it work like it used to! Superhandy!

Del Storm

Keep saying not responding. On both my Tab S 8.4 and my LG g3. Anyway, Joe Blackburn can't stop eating.

Tony Russell

Super useful and dev was quick to respond to my bug report :) This app is very useful for quickly choosing which browser to open a link with, or if I want to push it with Pushbullet without adding any extra steps if I just want to use my default. Developer was very quick to fix the issue I wrote in my review previously and other than that, the app has given me no issues.

EdwaᴚĐ Σℓℛῗς

Add the option to open the browser chooser please? :)

Frawsty Fyre

Excellent Great idea. Thanks for the option to show when it is ready for swipe. Now I don't forget I have it. Now I just forget which direction does what. Lol

James O'Leary

Really nice

Richie Vincent

Share Chooser broken? This is exactly what I've been looking for to get around the mess Marshmallow made with default sharing option. Unfortunately, when I click on a link in Gmail and swipe to open the share chooser menu, the link instead opens in Web Video Caster, which doesn't have any defaults to clear. Galaxy S6 6.0.1

paulo andre

Love this

Danny Miller

This works fairly well except that in almost all of my apps it always asks me to select the default app and only lists LinkSwipe. Every single time I choose the "Always" option and not "Just Once", but the prompt still comes up each and every time. If it wasn't for that, this app would definitely get 5 stars.

Veronika Vartanova

Would absolutely buy if it were more of a "The-Page-I'm-On-Right-Now Swipe". I'd really rather have an app for one-gesture-shares of already opened webpages. Needing to go back one page to actually use linkswipe pretty much nullifies all convenience this app provides. It does precisely what it promises, don't get me wrong, it's just - in case I pay for it - I'd wish it were doing a bit more.

Samson Alves Couto

Great just one problem Constantly asks me to choose as default even though I have about 100 times. Great otherwise

Scott Boyer

Just got it but so far works quite well. Really useful as I often want to send something to Pocket instead of reading it immediately. Speeds this up a lot.

Sundeep Kumar

now it's working fine good app for those who trade with link ?.
