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


#1

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


#2

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 http://x-callback-url.com

  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.
