Feature Request: Open links in Safari

Postby pillepalle555 » Thu Aug 30, 2012 8:34 pm

hi,

thanx for prowl. great app.

my problem: i have to use prowlmail (waiting for http response is too slow in php app).

prowlmail works great, except for the missing url parameter, which i need.

no problem. i put the url in the body of the message. but when i click the link in the description, it opens in the built-in browser.
thats bad. i have to log-in to make the link work (i'm already logged-in in safari) and i need other features of safari. so i need Safari to open links in the description.

some possible solutions:

- when long-tapping a link in description add the option "Open in Safari" to the existing options "Open" and "Copy"

- add option in client settings: "Do not use internal browser"

- add to prowlmail the url-option (e.g. in the body "url::http://www.url.com" will be recognized as url parameter)

thanx
pille

Fair feature requests. I have one question though: how did you manage to get SMTP to be faster than HTTP? Or are you deferring the mail send to another thread?

it's a zend framwork php website.

when using the prowl https request inside zend, there was a noticeable delay during login - which is generating a notification.

thought about just using a 'head' request, because i don't need the response. but zend always waits for the response. and even just sending the head request takes it's time.

so i swithed to prowlmail and the notification delay seemed to be gone.

would rather use https than sending sensitive info over email. but i don't know of a way to defer an http request in zend.

on the upside: when i switched to prowlmail, i sometimes have a login notification on my iPhone even before the login-page was fully rendered on my browser. pretty impressive for email messaging!
