iCab-supporting Apps

The following Apps are explicitly supporting iCab Mobile. For example they can open or forward web-pages in iCab Mobile instead of opening them in Safari. Especially because the iOS doesn't provide a way to change the default browser, this can be very important.

If you're a developer whose App supports iCab Mobile, or if you know of an App which supports iCab Mobile, please let me know. I'd be happy to add more Apps to the list below.

If you're a developer whose Apps does not yet support iCab Mobile, please consider doing so. It's very easy to do.

There are several ways you can call iCab Mobile to trigger an action or to open a web page. For example using the x-callback-url protocol or when using the AppLink protocol. AppLink can even enable iCab Mobile to support your App as well, in case your App is based on a certain web-based service (like for example Twitter, Facebook, Wikipanion, Blogs etc.)

iCab-unterstützende Apps

Die folgenden Apps unterstützten explizit iCab Mobile. Beispielsweise können diese Web-Seiten in iCab Mobile öffnen, bzw. an iCab Mobile weiterleiten, anstatt sie in Safari zu öffnen. Dies kann für den Anwender wichtig sein, da das iOS selbst leider nicht erlaubt den Standard-Browser (Safari) zu ändern.

Falls Sie ein Entwickler eines Apps sind, welches iCab Mobile unterstützt, oder solche Apps kennen, teilen Sie mir dies bitte mit. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn ich hier noch weitere Apps auflisten könnte.

Falls Sie ein Entwickler sind, dessen Apps noch nicht iCab Mobile unterstützen, dann würde ich mich freuen, wenn sie es noch tun. Das ist mit Hilfe des x-callback-url-Protokolls oder des AppLink-Protokolls sehr einfach und in wenigen Minuten erledigt. AppLink ermöglicht es zudem, dass iCab auch automatisch Ihr App unterstützen kann, sofern das App auf einem web-basiertem Angebot aufbaut (wie z.B. Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia, Blogs, usw.)
