Open App from Button


I noticed in the change notes for 1.9 it says this


<span style="margin: 0px;padding: 0px;border: 0px;vertical-align: baseline;color: #99ccff"><strong>URL Buttons:</strong></span> Buttons on Remote Designs can now open apps, URLs or even live camera displays as part of the command list.

How do open an App from a button in a remote I can’t seem to find the option to do it?


Opening an app via Button on a Remote Design is performed using the App Scheme URL system in iOS. We discuss how to use that here.

Basically, you need to find the usually not well documented scheme name for the app you want to launch and then enter it as if it were a URL. The link above has some pages that serve as directories of such names.

Thank you.
