    use the openurl command.
    Code:
    void openURL(	string 	url 	,
    		bool 	openAsPanel	)
    Sample:
    Code:
    {openURL( "http://google.com" , true);}

    ]{openURL( "http://google.com" , true) <--- opens up the app as if it was a straight up link, how would I make the app have a list of the links?

    after you finish SSH into ipod and drag the downloaded app into the applications folder then open your apps folder and change all the file permissions to 775 or 755 then respring launch the app and TADA!!!!!

    Thanks but that is not what I am wanting to do, I would like an app that when you open it up there is a list of links that when you click them they then open up in safari, about 20 links inside of the app, does any1 know how to do that? (I know some people do)

    Ha

    I don't think any1 understands, I am trying to make an app that opens up, and when it opens up there are links, several of them, you can click any of them, then they'll open up in safari.
