It was nice to read in the release notes for 0.9.85 that you fixed the OpenURL behavior.

Well, it was fixed really badly.

I already compiled a bug report but it's better to explain it to everyone:

- mailto links:

Before 0.9.8: mailto:[email protected] would open the Mail app with the correct to field compiled

With 0.9.8: mailto:[email protected] would open the Safari app using what's after the @ as the web address

With 0.9.85: mailto:[email protected] would open the Mail app with the correct to field compiled --> Good that was fixed

- advanced mailto links:

Before 0.9.8: mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Report%20for%20Musician%27s%20Little%20Helper&Body=Hi%2C would open the Mail app with the correct to, subject and body fields compiled

With 0.9.8: mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Report%20for%20Musician%27s%20Little%20Helper&Body=Hi%2C would open the Safari app using what's after the @ as the web address

With 0.9.85: mailto:[email protected] mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Report%20for%20Musician%27s%20Little%20Helper&Body=Hi%2C would open the Safari app using what's after the @ as the web address --> Bad that's still not fixed!

- iTunes links for apps:

Before 0.9.8: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hackalloon-hd/id377702115?mt=8 would directly open the App Store app

With 0.9.8: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hackalloon-hd/id377702115?mt=8 would open the inapt browser do some redirects and then open the App Store App

With 0.9.85: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hackalloon-hd/id377702115?mt=8 would directly open the App Store app --> Good that was fixed

- iTunes links for developer page:

Before 0.9.8: itms-apps://itunes.com/apps/MarcoFerraguti would directly open the App STore app in the page that lists all my games

With 0.9.8: itms-apps://itunes.com/apps/MarcoFerraguti would open the inapp browser do some redirects and then open the App Store App

With 0.9.85: itunes.com/apps/MarcoFerraguti now that I can only use http:// it first open Safari, then iTunes App and then the App Store app --> Bad that's still not fixed

- iTunes links for reviews:

Before 0.9.8: itms-apps://ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewContentsUserReviews?type=Purple+Software&id=347229183 would directly open the App Store app in the review page of one app

With 0.9.8: itms-apps://ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewContentsUserReviews?type=Purple+Software&id=347229183 would open the inapt browser and eventually get there after some redirects

With 0.9.85: ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewContentsUserReviews?type=Purple+Software&id=347229183 now that I can only use http:// it first open the iTunes App and then the App Store app --> Bad that's still not fixed

Please the next time you think how to fix something try to think a little more about user experience. Maybe having some more developers test new builds can give you more inputs on what works and what not.

Every time you release a new build there's something that needs to be fixed, that could be easily avoided by making test a little more the builds by the people who actually use them.

Regards
