    Default App and Link Associations

    Just picked up my One X and switched from Sprint. Quick question, when I had my Epic and Epic Touch, whenever I went to Wiki, YouTube, Instagram links, I would be prompted to choose the app or use the browser. I'm not getting that option with my phone. Help?

    From what I understand, it is a "feature" of Sense now, in place because HTC was found to have violated an Apple patent.
    I hate it. I only have an Evo3D which I upgraded to ICS Sense, but am going to downgrade, I hate it so much.

    This is something that frustrates me with the One X to no end. It's one of the reasons why I love android so much and it's missing from this device. I know the Galaxy S3 will have this functionality and will Probably switch to that As soon as it's available

    Note : got the international version

    If you go to Manage apps, and select for example "Internet" there's a button there to Clear Defaults. What this did for me is give me back my choice menu when tapping a link and I could make Chrome my default browser...

    I'm sure it works for other apps too.

    Does that work for the at&t version?

    Almost, not really tho. Example, in my Twitter, someone has an Instagram link, before if I click it, I get the option to use Internet or Instagram. When I'm using the browser and I click a Wiki link, it would give me the option to use wiki or the browser. I just want the option menu to show.

    What kills me is youtube links.
    Now, I click on a link from email, and it ONLY uses the browser to render the view. It does not give the option of using the native YouTube app or TubeMate.

    See this thread for a possible fix. It worked for me:

    I haven't rooted yet. Guess now is a good time. I wonder if the app associations deal with the apple patent? Anyway, how is Zedomax YouTube video regarding One X root? It work on the att model?
