    I've been developing an iPhone version of my site, and was wondering if it is possible to link to an installed app.

    Google does something similar: they have a link on the homepage saying "launch Google Mobile App" and the link redirecting to something like "googleapp://start".
    Is this a proprietary thing or can I utilize such a link?

    Any help is appreiciated!

    You probably need to type in the CFBundleIdentifier.

    Wher can I find the CFBundleIdentifier? I'm guessing it in the app's info.plist, but I can't find it.

    Never mind, ADC had a topic about it. The app has to privide a url.
    (Palringo is 'palringo://', YouTube is 'youtube://' etc.)
