If you're tired of opening links from inside one app — say, Twitter of Facebook, to name two of the biggest offenders — and having to wait for it to actually open in its proper app, you need to give Link Bubble a shot. It handles the heavy lifting in the background while you keep on keeping on in the foreground. So instead of tapping a linking and praying it makes the leap from Twitter to Chrome to Instagram (or YouTube, or Google Play, or whatever), it just loads in Link Bubble and lets you know when it's ready.

It's devilishly clever, and well worth a look.

If you decide you like it, pony up the $4.99 for Link Bubble Pro, which loads up an infinite number of tabs, loads links from every app on your phone or tablet, and gets rid of the upgrade nags. (Plus, it helps out the developer —and we've long been fans of Chris Lacy, the same bloke who brought us Action Launcher and TweetLanes.)
