Distribute a URL for my iOS App

A Custom URL scheme is a mechanism through which third-party apps can communicate with each other. You can specify a scheme name here which will allow customers / publishers to open your App from other Apps installed on the device, such as the Mail App or the Facebook App.

App Studio supports URLs that open your App to the Store page, the first page of a particular issue or a particular page within an issue.

For example, if you chose ‘testscheme’ as your scheme name, customers / publishers could link to the aforementioned areas of your App by formatting URLs in the following way:

Example: testscheme://issue/urn:uuid:mobileiqqa:widgettesting:mixedsources:production/article/qxp-webview-test/1

This can be copied from the App Studio Portal, at the document level, see example below:
