Jump to app?

Not sure how this would work on a web version of a desktop, however is there a way thru the sitemap on an iPhone to jump to an installed app? So say I need to launch my music so want to go to an app to start my playlist. But then switch back to the sitemap to switch tracks and manage my Sonos speakers. I know iOS apps have URL Schemes that in theory can be called and launch if the app is installed. Couple examples of a URL Scheme that would in theory launch an app:

  • Facebook – “fb://feed”
  • Whatsapp – “whatsapp://send?text=Hello!”

Thoughts?

Thanks.

I would love to have a deep link url scheme for the IOS app. This would help a lot to with triggering of openhab functions from other ios apps without the need to use the REST api (which some apps don’t support).
