    Alright- I get all kinds of email notification updates- auto trader, realtor.com, avsforum, etc. and every time I hit those links, it opens up a link in safari. This is what it should do- I understand this. But- I would really like to see the option to have those links open up the APP for that site instead. Is it possible to set something to do this?
    thanks.

    There's nothing you can do. The developer has to do this.

    They have to code into the app, registering a new URL scheme for the app in your device.

    Then they have to use this URL scheme in the emails they send out.

    It works with my emails from MapMyRun. When I build a route online, I can click send to device, and it sends an email to my phone with a registered URL that opens right into their App.
