Sometimes a software idea comes along that offers up a truly innovative idea, and today we found a great example of that. It's called Flynx (by InfiKen Labs) and it will quite literally change the way you use your Android device. Flynx basically replaces your default web browser with a new one, It creates pop-ups within the browser which work similarly to Facebook's chat heads. In Facebook, these are pretty annoying, but in the context of how Flynx works, it's actually quite brilliant, as it basically allows you to multi-task like a madman!

Flynx allows you to tap any of the links in any app and the page will load in the background. Simultaneously, a chat head-like icon appears on the side of your display. You can then tap the icon and a smaller version of the page will appear on top of whichever app you are using at that time. Tabs are supported as well, and there is even a read later service, which saves pages to be read online or offline later.

The icing on the cake regarding Flynx is that it is a completely free app! Here's the full description from the Google Play Store:

Flynx helps you open articles and links from all your favorite apps like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Google+, etc. in a revolutionary new way.

★★★★★ Featured as one of the essential apps on playstore by Google.

★★★★★ Featured on LifeHacker, Gizmodo, Economic Times, Addictive Tips, Android Community, YourStory and many more...

It loads articles and links in background for you while you do something productive.
Our quick read mode gets rid of ads and loads only relevant content saving your time and data. It also allows you to save articles offline to read them later.

Why Flynx?

SAVE OFFLINE, READ LATER : Saving articles offline is super easy. Just double-tap a link from any of your favorite apps and thats it!

TRUE MULTITASKING : Flynx makes multitasking effortless by allowing you to open multiple links and switch between them easily, all without ever leaving current app.

SMART SHARING : Share links quickly to your favorite apps like Facebook, Twitter, Pushbullet or save links directly to Pocket, Instapaper, Readability, Evernote, etc.

Downloading. Think this could be very handy. Skim through twitter & etc, loading links in the background, then go read them. Seems better than jumping back & forth from the browser.

When you click a link in another app, it should pop up the window asking which browser you want to use. If you choose Flynx, it creates a little "chat head" like button that floats around your screen. Might need to clear default browser if you've selected to "Always" use your browser of choice since you downloaded Flynx.

Ah. I'm guessing it's because you're already in the browser. I doubt the system calls for it to ask what app to open a link in when you're already in there.

Try from Facebook, Twitter, google+, Tapatalk, etc.

I'm assuming it doesn't work in the browser. When you're in another app, it makes sense to want to continue on with that app and then read any links that you might've opened in the background. In Chrome, you can set it to open new tabs behind the current one, doing basically the same thing. Can't remember if that's on by default, but it's a setting I always make sure I have turned on, because I use it frequently.
