I use a few packaged Chrome apps, namely Wunderlist for Chrome, Text, and Google Keep.

Packaged apps launch a new window when you click on their icon on the New Tab page:

I keep a Chrome window maximized on a second monitor at all times. I want to keep window switching on this monitor to a minimum, and the fact that these apps require spawning a new window is rather frustrating.

Is there any way to launch these packaged Chrome apps in a tab instead of a new window?
