I suggest you ...

Open in feature, clipboard

Allow other apps to open a page in photo file. Or get the clipboard workng fully so people can copy a URL and paste it. (can't seem to do that in current version)

        Bookmarklets are an undocumented feature of photofile. If you're famaliar with them the url for photofile is : photofile://actions?open=url

        So it would be something like this:

        javascript:(function(){ window.open(‘photofile://actions?open=’+encodeURIComponent(location.href)); })();

        I don't see an ability for Photofile to detect valid URLs on the clipboard when you switch to it and offer the option of opening it in the app.

        Nor do I see any bookmarklets for other browsers to open the current page in Photofile.

        Please let me know if I've missed something.

        The clipboard should work as the Address box is a standard text field. You should be able to copy the address out of it and paste new addresses into it.

        Unfortunately iOS doesn't have a great way for apps to talk to each other, but Photofile could support 'bookmarklets' which would let you open a bookmark in safari that would cause the current url to open in Photofile. It's a more hacky solution but I'll at least get that in for the next version.
