Link to external maps application on ios and android


#1

Hi! I’m trying to link an address in my app to an external maps application like apple or google maps.
I’ve tried creating the link with http://maps.apple.com and maps:// and others, but none of them work the way I want.

Linking to maps.apple.com launches the maps site in my app, but then the user can’t go back to my app, they’re stuck in the maps app. Is there a consistent way to launch an external maps app on both android and ios? Worst case scenario I’d be happy launching the browser in a new window.

Thanks for helping out!
