Registering to handle http URLs with the app


#1

I want to be able to register to handle external URLs for our website within our app.

e.g. http://test.com/thing/123 -> opens app and passes “thing/123”

I know that we can register for a custom scheme, e.g. myapp://thing/123, but want to give people the option to open links shared from their friends via email, twitter, etc in our app. How can I register for the http scheme for our specific domains?

I think it’s impossible, but you can obtain something near using this trick: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1108693/is-it-possible-to-register-a-httpdomain-based-url-scheme-for-iphone-apps-like/1109200#1109200
