YES! Back in the Android 4.x days, there was this 3rd party share sheet named Fliktu that had, imo the best behavior. Each app had it's own custom order to the share sheet based on what you frequently shared from that app. It weighed data from both how you used the app and how often you shared from all your apps plus how recently you used the apps. It was glorious.
Edit: Yes, Fliktu is still around and you can still manually replace specific inter-app intents (which is *immensely *useful), but you can't make it replace the Android default share sheet on Android 7+. Ve
I've just discovered <strong>Fliktu: Share Fast</strong> this week, and it's one of THE best app I've ever found on Android.
Reading the description on Google Play, I didn't really understand what exactly does it do, but I bought it anyway and I'm so glad I did.
So my biggest problem with Android was that I could either set a default app for a certain activity and it would always open that app, but sometimes I needed a non-default app to handle what I wanted to do, or I had to choose an app and always click on "just once", and it was always bugging me.
With Fliktu I can finally choose a default app for everything I want, and if I need another app to open a link or whatever I can just click the link, quickly shake the device a bit, and it'll prompt me to choose another app.
So it's sort of like TapPath (at least that's the way I use it), but it actually works.
But it can do more, like replace the share menu (but it's optional, so you can use the app and still use the default share menu) and you can use it when copying texts or whatever, I recommend watching the video on the Google Play to see it in action.
Sup r/Android! Last year I released Fliktu [link] to add many needed improvements to Androids share menu including pinning, hiding, and others. Here are a bunch of promo codes if you want to bask in its glory for free. Happy to post more if these run out. Enjoy.
Fliktu has completely changed the way I use the share menu on my phone. It's so intuitive and well thought out that I can never see myself going back to Android's native sharing menu - even after using direct share on Marshmallow.
I found Fliktu this week after getting fed up with the regular sharing menu always changing up the placement of my apps (kept clicking Hangouts and QKSMS instead of Pushbullet), the app replaces the share menu with another one that you can customize yourself and so far it's working out way better than the built-in Lollipop one.
I guess this is because Pocket uses an overlay and you aren't opening the full app. It seems Android isn't recognizing the shares therefore and doesn't put Pocket on top.
I installed an app called Fliktu and set up Pocket and Pushbullet (uses an overlay, too) to be always on top to circumvent this. Fun fact, it's created by the lead Android developer of Pocket.
Fliktu - Play Store Link
Another option for people out there is Andmade Share, which is old but still works. Play Store Link
Can't remember what's it's called but when I used Android I used a custom share sheet app that would allow you to hide some things you never use.
Found it: it's called Fliktu [link]
It is, and you can even change the default provider (e.g. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oakstar.fliktu )
I don't understand why they didn't just ship a separate app that replaces (gives the option) to replace the default Android share (and yes, I'm aware you lose the contact pinning if you're not rooted, which btw is what causes the slowdown)
I was just wondering this the other day. I really wish it was possible. The delay is brutal.
Edit: I just installed Fliktu and it's working well so far. I wish I could completely turn off the flicking feature but so far it hasn't annoyed me or triggered on accident.
Google Play Link
This is the app I've always wanted, thanks.
I actually just went and found the latest apk (5.2) and omg I never knew I needed this!! Now I've got the 6 share options I want instead of the rows and rows from the stock share menu
Edit: I did just find this one in the playstore and the UI is deff more updated
If your device is rooted, you can use this profile to change the default browser on your device.
And you need to install <u>Fliktu</u> app, which the profile relies on it, and set the default browser to Fliktu.
It's a bit faster than default share screen, and you can enable sharing by shaking your phone after copying something (Like an URL).
It's pretty good.
linkme: andmade share
Don't be scared of the UI, screenshots are outdated but still has an older design. Works pretty well, you can hide apps and sort them (not per app though I think).
There are other alternatives, like a paid app. Maybe it does the other features you want
Just in case you might be interested, you can always replace your stock share menu using a third party app
I use Fliktu. It replaces the share menu (for most apps) with a customizable, better looking menu. You can choose which apps show up first, and it also moves your most recently shared to apps to the top.
Before Marshmallow, I used Fliktu but stopped becuase it had issues in 6.0. It's been fixed since, but I find that Direct Share saves me time, so I probably will stick with it.
fliktu is a great alternative to the default share menu for Android.
Fliktu is decent Share Menu replacement for previous versions of Android. Still waiting for my update so I cannot confirm it works on Android 10. [link]
idk who downvoted me, but fliktu and sharedr exist
Why I'm still using this 4 years abandoned ware. Crashes on a couple of apps but yet to be bettered.
I found an app called Fliktu that seems to do exactly what I needed, I can block the SMS app from showing up in the menu. Thanks for all the responses !
What kind of customization do you want to do?
Fluktu replaces the existing share functionality without requiring root
CustomShare allows, as you would expect, customizing through share menu (requires root)
No arguments here.
I started using Fliktu recently. [link]
It's fine. Actually I've used multiple share menu apps over many years, and all of them are better than the stock method.
I've submitted feedback on my phone and I recommend everyone else do that too.
I use Fliktu and have never had a single complaint about it. It's not a hard problem, and that app solves it just fine.
What's crap about the ones you've used?
>It is truly awful UI but I don't see any discussion about it.
I feel like it pops up here weekly.
It's bad. I've taken to using 3rd party share apps. Fliktu is what I'm using now, and it's fine I don't find the "flick your phone" aspect of it useful set all so I've disabled that, but it provides a fast and consistent share menu, which is all I ever wanted.
But then there is the fact that some apps have their own share menu and doesn't use the system share menu, which also ruins the experience.
yeah, I have stopped using it. I use fiktu these days. I miss the direct contact integration, but atleast it is fast and shows most used apps up front.
Although you’d need root to alter it, there used to be apps to replace it, it just seems people aren’t interested anymore. Fliktu hasn’t been updated in years but I still use it without issues on nougat
Used to use Andmade Share since I started with Android. Updates stopped.
Now I use [link]
I only ever share to three different targets so it's much faster and predictable than the built in system.
I've already done everything that everyone has mentioned (apart from force gpu render 2d objects) but I have found a fix for the ridiculously slow share menu, [link] << this one replaces the Samsung share menu, it's very leightweight and a lot smoother (went from waiting 5 seconds for it to load to now loading instantly)
The default share cannot be edited, only partially influenced via your usage. Even then it does a really shitty job of selecting the most used shares (I.e it won't mix WhatsApp contacts with PushBullet devices or even just have PushBullet devices sometimes).
You're better off using something like Fliktu. But even that isn't completely satisfactory in my opinion. I do like the ability to set favorite items then have the less common one's a scroll away.
I use Fliktu to manage my "Share" selections. The dev was active on /r/android and gave out free codes, but it's well worth it in my opinion.
This was pretty annoying to me, so I got a combination of Fliktu and Better Open With going on.
You choose Fliktu as the default app handler for everything, and it provides a screen to choose which app to open with, only when you shake your phone lightly as you open an intent link. Without any shaking, it opens your chosen app for that particular intent, all invisibly and fast.
For the edge cases, where Fliktu doesn't show up as an application to handle the intent, Better Open With comes in handy. It provides a selection screen that you can have disappear in X seconds of your choice (I chose 1 second) and open your default for that type of link.
I've used Fliktu for awhile but it's got a few bugs that keep me from assuming that it's actually the best. I'm not really sure what else is out there, though.
Personally, I'd suggest either Fliktu or Complete Action Plus.
Fliktu is really nice imo, and it basically does just what you want, putting those apps that you always use at the top. It cost me a dollar, and imo it's worth the price.
On the other hand, I also really like Complete Action Plus (though as of right now I only use it for the 'open with' dialog). Probably I wouldn't have bothered with Fliktu if I'd known about it then (not meant as an insult to that app, of course, but it's free and it does other things I want, too). But it does require root\xposed, so that might not be your thing.
Either one is a great choice. I've seen Andmade Share mentioned below, too, which you may as well check out, but it never worked as well or as consistently for me as either of the other two I'm recommending.
try this one. not updated since 2015, but still works without any issue.
I myself don't use it, but although not updated it is always recommend: Fliktu
For those of us not yet on Oreo: [link]
Some rootless tweaks:
You know the Android share menu takes some time populate the top area with contacts you talked to a month ago? Use this app to just bring up a list of apps, no loading for contacts, no bullshit.
first it shows up like this
scroll up to reveal more apps.
Some suggested navigation tweaks, I like Pie control because it works without root.
If you're on 8.0, you can hide the "Running in the background" notification with this app
There's Button remapper which lets you remap buttons, including volume buttons. You can swap the volume orientation when the phone is in landscape, swap recents and back buttons, and skip song with longpress volume.
fliktu is the only other one that I know of
These are there...but then they are shit too...
FLIKTU : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oakstar.fliktu&hl=en
ANDMADE SHARE: https://apkpure.com/andmade-share/com.andmadesoft.share
Haven't used this app in a while so not sure if it's still good but give it a try.
Y'all, get Fliktu. It's a third party share menu.
It's not perfect but it works 95% of the time and it's significantly faster.
Fliktu does exactly that. It works correctly on nougat but don’t know about oreo
With Fliktu links open in one browser by default and in other browsers upon a shake of your phone.
Try fliktu? [link]
Some already suggested workarounds:
Remove direct shares (first rows, contacts. Need root)
Pin on share menu (Android N+)
CustomShare (need Xposed)
Share to Clipboard
Better Open With
not available on Play Store. Google for it.
Complete Action Plus (need Xposed)
Resolver Activity Tweaks (need Xposed)
If anyone's looking for a way to replace the sharing menu entirely, I really like Fliktu.
Edit: I'm putting this edit at the beginning because it actually focuses on more of exactly what you were asking, but my original response might still be relevant, so I'm leaving it.
I re-read your question, and I realize this isn't actually what your issue was, haha, woops. You want to be able to get to the app while actually on the page.
I just found out that my sharing app actually gives me the option to open the Reddit URLs in app. I tried using the regular Android system sharing, and it only gave me the option to submit the URL like you have. The app Fliktu I use isn't free I don't think, but there is a free one called Andmade Share. I actually used this app before I used Fliktu, and it's pretty nice. It give more control over your share options. If you go ahead and install that app and use it for sharing, you don't even have to fiddle with settings, immediately you get both the option to Submit via Boost or open the app via Boost. Here's a gif demonstration of Andmade and Chrome opening into Boost. As a side note, you can re-order Andmade's share options too and remove ones you will never use.
Another option would be to switch browser real quick and use Firefox Nightly which has an open in-app button by the URL bar. Here's a gif demonstration of that.
You could also use the actual Google app search (not Chrome). If you put Reddit URLs into that app it will give you the option to open it in app. Here's a gif demonstration of that. You need to make sure the setting to Open web pages in the Google App is disabled though, which can be found at Three line menu > Settings > Account & privacy > Open web pages in the Google App (the last option).
Original Response: Okay, I actually may have figured out your problem. When searching on Chrome using Google search, the results that are given are AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages). The point of them is to basically make the pages smaller in size and more mobile friendly so that they load quicker (among other things). Here's a Wikipedia article on it.
To make it so your searches don't bring up AMP results, what you can do is visit encrypted.google.com. Using that URL to make Google searches is a way to get Google searches without AMP results. After you visit that website, you should be able to make it your default search engine. When I tried it though, I had to wait a couple minutes before encrypted.google.com was an option for a search provider. The settings to change your search provider can be found by going to Three dots settings > Settings > Search engine. You should then get an option to switch it to encrypted.google.com, and when you find Reddit links by searching for them, it will allow you to open in app.
Try Fliktu instead
I recently installed an app that works fine for me. Check it out: [link]
Check Fliktu ❤️
This is one of the biggest complaints about Android. The best solution is an app called Fliktu >>> [link]
There's a bit more functionality to this app than just sharing but replacing the share menu is the only thing I use this for.
Wish List for Android?
I wish the native Google calendar app would import .ics calendar invite files. When I try to import .ics files to date, I get a message that "The Event is unavailable." Conversely, I have no problem importing .ics with the other Android calendar apps. Rather, just the Google Calendar app
I wish there was picture-in-picture re-sizable window feature for every application. I would like to be able to play videos, podcasts etc in a small window while browsing the web, texting or doing something else. Offer true multitasking for as much apps as I choose
A customizable Always-On-Display option(e.g. separate color for the minute and hour digital clock etc)
An option to have the weather temperature on the Always-On-Display screen along with the clock
A Samsung Smartstay type feature

Take a look at Fliktu
Fliktu to overhaul the sharing menu.
Check out Fliktu
I got so fed up with the share UI a couple weeks back I started looking around for a replacement, because it's android, there has to be a way to replace it. Turns out, there's an app for that. I tried a few different ones and Fliktu worked perfectly for what I wanted.
