Ever since we introduced URL scheme support in 1Password 4.1, app support has been coming fast and furious. First there was Launch Center Pro and Riposte, then came Felix, and today Tweetbot for iPhone and iPad, one of the most popular Twitter clients, has taken a seat on the 1Password Browser Express.
As of Tweetbot 2.7 for iPhone and iPad, you can now set 1Password (and even Google Chrome) as your default browser. Just go to Tweetbot’s settings to find this new option by tapping the account icon in the upper left, then “Accounts & Settings”, then Settings to see the new “Browser” section.
This means you can now tap a link in your tweet stream and automatically switch to 1Password to view it in the spectacular new Web Mode. If it’s a site you frequently comment on, you can use AutoFill in Web Mode to quickly log in and say your 2¢. Or, if it’s something you want to buy, you can use our new AutoFill support for Identities and Credit Cards to fill in your shipping and Credit Card information right from the palm of your hand.
If you don’t want to open every single link in 1Password, you can also leave Tweetbot’s “Open in Tweetbot” feature enabled. This will preserve what’s been the default behavior—opening links in the in-app browser—but it replaces the “Open in Safari” option from the action arrow with “open in 1Password.” Then you get the best of both worlds: the convenience of quickly browsing links within Tweetbot, but the option to open some sites in 1Password where you can use AutoFill for Logins, Identities, and Credit Cards. Everybody wins!
