    I'm wondering if there support for Custom URL Schemes has been dropped on the iPad, or if it's handled in a different way than before.

    On my iPhone-app I use this simple method to open another app ("app2") from an app ("app1").

    app1:
    Code:
    NSString *current_URLScheme = @"app2://";
    [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:current_URLScheme]];
    
    The app2 has its [ info.plist > URL types > item 0 > URL Schemes > item 0 ] set to "app2".

    Pretty basic, and works perfectly on iPhone.

    Also, Ive found that the [ info.plist > URL Types ..etc ] is not available by default when creating an iPad-app. I dont know if this is an indication that this is not supported any longer, or that you simply have to add this yourself?
