How to use link bubble to open links in the background on Android?

Assume that you are using Google Chrome on your mobile and you need to open a link from a different browser. At this sort of moment, Link Bubble works efficiently, but this capability isn't omnipresent across Android. When catching up on one of your feeds, like Twitter, you have to click the link and then wait for it to load in Chrome, then head back to the tweet stream.

The process is similar to when you open tabs in the background on your desktop Web browser - ones that you intend to read when you're finished with your primary task.

Ready to check it out? 

(Let's get started)
First you'll need to grab a copy of Link Bubble for your Android device. Initially, there were free and paid versions of this app. However, the app is now under new ownership and all paid features have become free.



Link Bubble is an app for Android 4.2 + that lets you queue links to read when you're finished catching up on social media or RSS feeds.

The easiest way to really see how this app works is to open a social media client that doesn't offer in-line content and tap on a link.

An introduction page will load for Link Bubble, explaining how it works. You can close this by pressing and holding the floating icon at the top of your screen and dragging it to the delete bubble at the bottom. To minimize links, tap on their bubble at the top of the screen.

You'll see a pop-up asking which browser you want to use. Pick Link Bubble and then choose Always. You won't see this window next time.

There's also a built-in reader mode you can enable by tapping the button next to the share icon on an open link.
Want to share a link you've read? You can drag bubbles to the left or right to share with other apps. The defaults are set to Facebook or Google Plus and the share button, but you can choose other app shortcuts for each bubble in the app's settings.
