Is there a way to make Facebook for iPhone (and other iPhone apps like Google & Yelp) always open links in Safari (or YouTube, etc.) instead of in an internal web view?

The native apps like Safari & Youtube seem to usually work much better than web views. Plus, iOS 9 adds a back button that takes you back to the original app with one tap.


There's no such possibility. App developer would need to implement this in the app.

P.S. You can open links from Facebook in Safari -> click "Share" when viewing the link and choose "Open in Safari".

    OK. Thanks. I know that, but I want links to open in Safari on the first tap. – ma11hew28 Sep 23 '15 at 13:48
