URL Helper


This extension allows you to add URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) to person and company cards in your Names file.

URL Helper adds an item ("URL") to the "Add" menu in the Names app. Selecting it will open an editor window in which you can enter the URL. In addition to the ususal keyboard, a series of buttons are displayed to allow one-tap entry of common URL parts ("http://", "www.", ".com", etc.). After entering a URL, it will appear in the All Info view of the Names app.

URL Helper also adds a new type of stationary to the Notes app for storing URLs. It works in a similar fashion to the Names URL editor window.
