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?
