No amount of searching has been very helpful for me personally when trying to find iOS application identifier URLs.
A URL identifier is a unique name that each iOS application must have. Using this name an existing application on an iOS device can call upon that app to perform actions, such as open a file.
To my knowledge there is no list out there for such identifiers. What I would like to do is start that list here. (Edit 12-2019 : I have found this site with additional URL identifiers)
(Edit: 8/12/21 - That link has apparently died and I will be replacing it with my own soon. Until then here is another site that appears to be a copy of the original link https://technoglitz.com/always-updated-list-of-ios-app-url-schema-names-ios-iphone-gadgethacks/)
My only methods to finding out this URL identifier are to either ask the developer or to take a guess and test it inside of safari. If you open safari and type the following into the address bar
You should get a result of either app not found, or something that asks if you would like to allow an app to open the webpage. For an example using Salesforce (salesforce1://) see screen shots below.
Without further ado here is the very short list of ones I have used in the past. If you know any additional ones leave a comment below and lets get them added to the list.
- Salesforce - salesforce1
- Go To Meeting - gotomeeting
- AutoCAD DWG Viewer and Editor - autocad
- Webex - wbx
- Zoom Cloud Meetings - zoomus
- Slack - slack
- Apple Maps - maps
- Google Maps - googlemaps
- Docusign - Docusignit
The items on this list were generated by myself and the community. I have not verified the accuracy of most of them. I am asking for the communities help in either adding to the list or for a more foolproof way of finding out the applications URL identifier.
