TapPath for Android: the ultimate tap customization tool

by: Edgar CervantesAugust 12, 2014

The Google Play Store has become so rich in app selection that it’s hard to get impressed by new apps. We get the seasonal game changer, though. TapPath is here to revolutionize the way we see tapping (or clicking) on Android.

The application is unique in that it allows you to customize how you want a tap to react, depending on how it’s done. It’s a bit hard to fathom, because we haven’t quite explored these features in mobile platforms. It’s easier to think of it like the right-button or wheel in a mouse, which will perform different functions when pressed.

A single tap on a link will do what you expect – open a page on your browser. What if you double tap? You could set such action to open another app, such as Link Bubble or Pocket. A triple tap could be set to launch another app of your choice. It gives you the freedom to personalize your tapping and link experience as you wish.

The app is very simple and will bring you a whole new experience. Not surprisingly, the app is made by the same developer who created Link Bubble. Chris Lacy is selling this helpful tool for just $0.99, so go get it from the Google Play Store if you want to give it a good try.

I have downloaded it and it works like a charm, but I have only tested it for some minutes. Be sure I will let you know if I find any problems with it. And don’t forget to give us your 2 cents if you happen to download it.

    I like the idea I would buy it, if it comes to amazon app store.But I see some ethical problem here becauss auther of the article and the app developer is same person so I don’t think it is cool. And Also I don’t think android authority shouldn’t share such posts.

    • What do you mean they are the same person? Chris Lacy developed this app and Edgar Cervantes wrote this story

      • Sinan Cagrı Kurt

        Check the source Edgar didn’t wrote it(end of article)

        • Edgar wrote it. The source isn’t the author. It’s the original place where the author found out about this news.

  • Supyo

    Did Sinan get the source and author confused?

    It’s nice, but I was hoping for something like: 1 tap open in new tab. 2 taps: share, etc.
    I really want the open in a new tab every time I tap a link.
    But is nice to have it.

    Give LinkSwipe a try – similar functionality, but with tap and swipe gestures – works really well. The calibration and the prompt really helps. There is a free version too.
