App Picker Classic

App Picker Classic


Don't like the app picker interface in Jelly Bean? Have you installed multiple browsers or other "duplicate" apps and want to be able to choose which one to run each time, with just one tap? Tired of having to tap two times to start your third party apps? App Picker Classic solves that problem by creating a UI similar to the one in ICS where you only have to tap once to select the preferred application.

Works with the following intents:
1. Web links
2. Mailto links
3. Images, videos and audio
4. Sms and mms
5. Launcher
6. Word/Excel/PowerPoint
7. PDF-documents
8. Chooser/share
9. Contacts

In addition, the app resolves some common short URLs like t.co, bit.ly and goo.gl, taking you directly to the app of your choice, for instance Instagram, Google Play or YouTube. Fallback to native app picker if you haven't picked a default yet.

If you have app choices that are currently hidden - maybe you chose "Always" by accident once, but you'd like to be able to reinstate the app and choose each time - then reset these by clearing the defaults in the application manager of your phone/tablet.

Please send me an email if you have any ideas how to improve the app. Big thanks for all the feedback received so far!

Good but... Great app to replace dumb Jelly Bean feature! Thanks But where's the "set as default..." option? Without it, setting as default will become a long story... Is it hard to add? To make app look exactly as ICS?

Love it I can't believe it took me this long to find something like this. Amazing, I have hated how jelly bean uses the app picker since I switched but I liked other things about jelly bean too much to switch back. So glad I randomly found it.

Great app I hate android JB and KK's app picker because you always have to press the app and then "just once" if you have more than one app to open something. Gives you a ICS style picker and you can open the app you want to use in one tap!

A necessary solution... ...to a major chink in Android 4.1's armour.
