Google API hopes to help iOS app links open in Chrome
Google's Chrome browser for iOS has a lot of features to love, but unfortunately for most of us who use it, we still find that clicking a link in another app only opens that link in Safari. Google is hoping to rectify this issue by providing developers with sample code that checks whether or not Chrome is installed on an iOS device, and then adds an option to open links with it when it is installed.
The Verge notes that this is similar to adding an "open in Dropbox" option to a Word or PDF document in an app. Hopefully a lot of iOS devs will choose to add the necessary code to their apps so that doing something as simple as tapping a link in Twitter gives users the option of opening that link in Chrome.
