Resolver Activity Tweaks

Yes, it now works on Pie with EdXposed! ™

Requirements:

  • Lollipop 5.0 or higher. Works on Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo and Pie.
  • An AOSP ROM.
  • Xposed or EdExposed.

Features:
This module changes the look and behavior of the dialog shown when picking an activity (app) to open a URL or document (intent).
On Lollipop, by default, you get a list of apps the very first time a given document type is opened.
Then, for the subsequent times, the last app is shown at the top, with an "Always" and a "Once" buttons, and the other apps are pushed down another header.

With this module you can pretty much remove some of the space wasted by all the headers and buttons by:

  • Always using the "first time" menu, where the Always and Once buttons are shown at the bottom.
  • Also hiding the Always and Once buttons too. In this case a single tap on the App name will launch the activity, and you won't be able to mark an app to "Always" launch any more.

These are the three possible configurations:

  • Stock:
  • Always use first time intent chooser (with the last selected app promoted to the top):
  • Always use first time chooser and remove Always/Once:

Finally this is how the app looks:
