    I responded to a post on XDA about this issue, but I was hoping one of the friendlier AF members would be of help too.

    I am running CleanROM Professional 4.4. In the settings, there is a section for "App associations" which has a section for web URLs and it only offers browser apps. This means that if I have a URL (say a link in an email) that points to a YouTube site or a Google Play app page, the link opens in the browser rather than the specific app associated with that link.

    Can anyone confirm that this is happening for them on an ICS ROM? Does the problem exist on GB ROMs? I'm enjoying CleanROM, but this "bug" is a problem for me that I need to get resolved, even if it means returning to a GB ROM or (gasp!) stock.

    I have been having the same issue. But I haven't tried to resolve it. Not returning to GB for this, that's for sure!
