Open file (with...)


in my Glide tables, I have a column to upload a gpx-file (navigation). Works fine.
But in my Glide App, I have a basic table with the link to that gpx-file (see image - green circle).

Ticking on that link, the file is downloaded on my phone, but the app only shows a blank screen.
(I had to figure out that downloading / saving was done in the background).

I expected immediately opening the file with the app I always use to open gpx-files or at least a dialog to ask “open with” and the possible apps.

  1. Is there a way to do this?
  2. (how) can I change the name “” to the real filename like “bikeroute_1.gpx” ?


I don’t think there’s a way to do that, especially with the basic table always rendering file URLs in a webview.

I would try to show that in an Open Link action. If that doesn’t open correctly in the browser as well, I would say it’s a no go.

thanks for the suggestion, but same result.
OK, no problem.
