[Review] RapidLinks - Easy Access to Your Favorite Web Sites
If there’s one thing that would make a great add-on for iOS, it would be the ability to get to your favorite Web sites very quickly and easily without having to load up Mobile Safari and typing in your Web address or looking through your bookmarks to find the Web site you want. Luckily, a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed RapidLinks
by iOS developer ravirajm
will let you bring up an interface of your favorite Web sites using an Activator action. You can even choose between a gray or a black interface.
It is recommended that you use the slide to left or slide to right on status bar Activator actions for RapidLinks because some of the other Activator actions can cause problems with the tweak. RapidLinks includes a preferences pane where you can set your Activator action and your top Web sites. You can also pick the interface color you want. When adding your favorite Web sites, you will have to type out the full URL and then choose a label for them that will be displayed on the interface when you invoke it.
After making all of your changes in the preferences pane, it is important to tap on the, “Apply” button so that your changes are saved. If you don’t tap on the, “Apply” button, then your changes won’t be saved and you won’t see any of your options coming to life on your iDevice.
When you tap on any of the buttons from the interface, the Web site URL you typed in will be loaded up in Mobile Safari automatically, ready for you to start browsing your favorite Web sites. The loading time is fast and the interface where you tap on the Web site you want to visit is very Apple-like in terms of cosmetic appearance. If you invoke the interface by mistake, you can just tap the cancel button at the bottom of the list to exit out of it.
Since the tweak is free and offers expedited access to your favorite Web sites, this tweak is worth looking into. Check it out and let us know if it helps you!
