Link to Other Apps

    iOS Android

    Linking to other apps, commonly known as Outbound Traffic, is the flux of users that exit your app to another app or website to perform some action or just to continue your business workflow.

    With that in mind, HOKO SDK provides a very simple interface that allows you to quickly generate smart links with custom URLs for each platform (iOS universal, iPhone, iPad, Android and/or Web), which makes it easier to create and share platform-personalized links for your outbound traffic needs. The process to achieve that is fairly simply to execute with just a few of line codes:

    // create your deeplink object with the twitter URLs for each platform.
    // we will use Tweetbot on iOS, Twitter on Android and twitter.com on Web
    HOKDeeplink *deeplink = [HOKDeeplink deeplink];
    [deeplink addURL:@"tweetbot://hokolinks/timeline" forPlatform:HOKDeeplinkPlatformIOSUniversal];
    [deeplink addURL:@"twitter://user?screen_name=hokolinks" forPlatform:HOKDeeplinkPlatformAndroid];
    [deeplink addURL:@"https://twitter.com/hokolinks" forPlatform:HOKDeeplinkPlatformWeb];
    
    // now that it is created, generate a smart link
    // and let HOKO do the hard work for you
    [[Hoko deeplinking] generateSmartlinkForDeeplink:deeplink
                                             success:^(NSString *smartlink) {
      // your smart link was generated successfully
      NSLog(@"smartlink: %@", smartlink);
    } failure:^(NSError *error) {
      // an error occurred while trying to generate the smart link
      NSLog(@"%@", error.description);
    }];
    // create your deeplink object with the twitter URLs for each platform.
    // we will use Tweetbot on iOS, Twitter on Android and twitter.com on Web
    let deeplink = HOKDeeplink()
    deeplink.addURL("tweetbot://hokolinks/timeline", forPlatform: .IOSUniversal)
    deeplink.addURL("twitter://user?screen_name=hokolinks", forPlatform: .Android)
    deeplink.addURL("https://twitter.com/hokolinks", forPlatform: .Web)
    
    // now that it is created, generate a smart link
    // and let HOKO do the hard work for you
    Hoko.deeplinking().generateSmartlinkForDeeplink(deeplink, success: { (smartlink: String) -> Void in
      // your smart link was generated successfully
      println("smartlink: \(smartlink)")
    }) { (error: NSError) -> Void in
      // an error occurred while trying to generate the smart link
      println(error.description)
    }
