Link Bubble developer launches new app, TapPath – lets you customize links behave to your taps

Chris Lacy is definitely one of our favorite Android developers in the Google Play Store. You may remember his work from the phenomenal job he did on Link Bubble, an app that flexes Android’s multitasking muscle by pulling up a floating web browser on top of the app you’re currently in. Today, he’s introducing TapPath, his latest app to his Google Play.

Priced at $1, TapPath allows users to customize the way links inside of apps behave according to the amount of times you tap on them. For instance, when tapping on a link inside of Twitter, you can set it so the Link Bubble will open with 1 tap, Chrome will open with 2 taps, or the standard Android share menu with 3 taps. It’s simple and potentially useful enough that we’ve already given it a download. If you think your life could greatly benefit from TapPath, you can find the download link down below.

    He needs to slow down and figure out all the issues with link bubble. That thing is so bug riddled, it’s annoying! The sad part is I can’t give it up because it is so useful

      He just got you to pay to be a beta tester =D

    …and it’s fully customizable!? So, I can tap a link once to load in the background with Link Bubble… Tap it twice to load in Chrome… Tap 3 times on a twitter link to automatically open in Vine and so on!? I’m buying this once, and gifting it to friends. I’m not even going to use my Google Opinion Rewards for this. Action Launcher, Link Bubble and now this. Chris Lacey is definitely one to watch.

      except his apps are still bug ridden… believe me, I bought link bubble and still regret it because it is SO laggy!

        I see your point, particularly your insight from above where you’re willing to put up with some of the bugs particularly given that Link Bubble is so useful. However, me, personally… I don’t use Link Bubble anywhere near enough to encounter significant pain points. I generally use it when I’m doing my nightly catch up binge of my twitter or Google+ feed. Even then, small bugs aside, nothing too major. Action Launcher has given me significantly more issues, but to your point, it’s too damn useful and I’ve been using it so long that trading it even for the Vanilla Google launcher would be a curve I’m not willing to take.

        Chris’ apps are are super useful, and by and large he’s fairly good at fixing bugs and increasing functionality. For $1, this particular app buggy or not is worth it simply because I don’t have to hunt and peck for a myriad of apps to process a link anymore.

    Why not include this functionality in Link Bubble itself?

      Probably because some people want this functionality without Link Bubble.

    Chris Chavez should definitely start developing apps. They’d be fabulous. :D
