Link Bubble, the popular web browser-enhancing app has had a busy month. It was only a few weeks ago that developer Chris Lacy decided to sell Link Bubble and all related assets to an as of yet un-named startup. A short time later a huge update was pushed through with a Material Design overhaul and various other improvements, and as of yesterday, the Link Bubble app will be completely free. Features that were previously unlocked with the Link Bubble Pro key will now be available to all users.
In a blog post published yesterday, Brian Bondy – of the new startup currently working under the name Link Bubble – outlined what this new change will mean for users:
Link Bubble going free means that all users of Link Bubble can now update and get:
An infinite number of bubbles (tabs)
Themes base on website color
Article mode for Android wear
Early on in the life of the app, the free version would only allow bubbles from one specific app of the user’s choice. That was relaxed in later versions of the app, but the total number of tabs was restricted. Themes are great and all, and extracting text using article mode is helpful, but infinite tabs is really great.
If you’ve recently purchased the app, and feel slighted that it’s now free, Link Bubble has offered to refund your money. If you purchased the app after August 4th, 2015 simply e-mail [email protected] and provide your purchase transaction ID and they’ll happily refund your money. This offer is only good for the next month, so if you’d like a refund, you’d better hunt down your Play Store receipt soon.
I’ve long sung the praises of Link Bubble and would still argue that the purchase price was worth every penny even in light of the new free model. If you’ve been on the fence or have not yet tried out Link Bubble there’s really no excuse anymore not to do so. Check out that app at the Play Store link below.
