    Lately, my iPod has been saying that it cannot load custom URLS, i.e. tel://, twinkle://, mailto://. You get the idea.
    It gives me a restricted URL action sheet...

    This even happens with Apple's official applications, when tapping on email addresses, etc. This is kind of depressing, seeing as my MobileAddressBook.app is basically useless at the moment.

    Anybody know why this is happening?

    I had the Safari Download Plugin, but I uninstalled it.
    I have nothing else of the sort installed. :/

    I think I find the trick

    When an app call an other app, this last app HAVE to be on the springboard.
    Try to unhide the app you wanna call in an other one...
