Linking to Apps
Full Title or Meme
Since the advent of apps stores, first on smart phone, but now every where, the need to invoke an app by linking direct to it has become important.
Apple support for Links
- Custom URL Scheme for Your App still works to create a custom scheme for your app but Apple prefers developers to use Universal Links.
- Allowing Apps and Websites to Link to Your Content or UniversalLinks allows directing a requested link to deep inside an app. It allows a two-way association between the app and the developers web site, similar to the way PWA initiators work.
