How do you find out the URL scheme to launch an app?

Given RandomApp on your phone, how do you find out the App URL Scheme to launch that app?

There’s a few possibilities:

  • Try the obvious: lowercase the app name, add a :/// and open it.
  • Check the developer’s website to see if they have documentation.
  • Check the Launch Center Pro app to see if it has it.
  • Email the developer and ask if they have one, and if not requesting they implement it.

  1. Check

  2. Google “app name” + ( “url scheme” or “x-callback-url” )

This looks like a nice resource, but needs more input from everyone to grow the list of supporting apps.

There a thread in the OmniFocus forum about Automation, which also talks about callback URLs for that app.
