[prMac.com] Torgau, Germany - Independent music software developer, Joerg Garbers today is thrilled to announce the release of Musk Links 1.0 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The app and its web extension help users to quickly find relevant links in web pages and to download multiples files from web pages more easily. It analyses the web page and highlights links that have pre-selected file extensions. Users can search within these links for textual patterns and download matching files in the background. "Musk Links" is well integrated with Joerg Garbers' other music apps.
Downloading files from web pages can be quite cumbersome and time consuming in iOS: Users have to tap a link in Safari, wait for the download to finish, tap "Open In...", and choose the target app. For multiple downloads, users have to repeat this process. Some apps, like "Musk MIDI Player", therefore embed a web browser to immediately use the downloaded files. However, embedded web browsers often do not support synchronized bookmarking or multiple tabs.
Since iOS 8, users can send the content of a Safari web page to a web extension for custom processing. The "Musk Links" web extension extracts all links from a web page that have pre-selected file extensions. Users can highlight these links in the web page, search for suitable links, select links and download the linked files in the background.
User can manage active downloads and organize, preview and export files. Besides being generally useful, "Musk Links" is an ideal companion app for Joerg Garbers' music apps "Musk MIDI Player", "Musk MIDI Keyboard" and "MIDI SolFa Mode-Go-Round": All downloads are stored in a shared directory and are instantly accessible from all of these apps.
