Unless you are using a generation 1 iPad with system 5!
WOuld be great to have this feature available, I would much prefer a URL call to open Safari or other browser directly. the us of a custom URL for safari might work? Eg safari:// etc ?
I asked my customer to try it, unfortunately it didn't work .
There is no app URL for safari strangely enough.
If its really important you have 2 choices.
1. Complicated and probably not worth doing.
Use another app with appurl to forward the request. Its quite simple to add a url scheme to an iOS app. Then have it launch the url in safari as soon as it starts up. Its about 3 lines of code. Downsides are getting the app on the phone. you can add it to the app store. Use a Provisioning profile from your dev account. Or setting up B2B option. Also you will see 2 app transitions.
2. Easy but you need to use Chrome.
U se chrome by having your link look like this "googlechrome://www.example.com"
This becomes important when doing custom authentication through a browser, as the filemaker user-agent is disallowed by auth providers. We need a serious way to open URLs directly in the app..!
