    Hi Guys,

    I am developing iphone app that has information to launch mail, call and sms.. so i think im going to use all of this link,
    email - "mailto:"
    call - "tel:"
    sms - "sms:"

    So all of this link will redirect to navitve app in iphone, the problem I have is how am I going to track down all of this 3 communication (email, call and sms) in my app ?? and save all data from my database for history/reports purposes?

    Do you have any idea how this kind of functionality in iphone SDK??

    I really need your help .. Thanks in advance..

    Go through documentation

    Check openURL method of UIApplication.:)

    NSString *tel = [NSString stringWithFormat:mad:"%@%@", @"tel://", telePhoneNum];
    [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:tel]];

    If you mean how can you get access to the users calls/messages/email then basically you can't.
