Home Documentation App Features Link / Links Feature

The Links feature allows you to create links in your app that will open a web page in the app, or open the web page in the phone’s browser.  Below is an example:

GETTING STARTED

1) Log into your App Manager and select your app.

2) Click Features from the left-hand-side of the screen (or the middle of the screen).

3) Click Links (or whatever is the name of your Links page).

 

ADDING A NEW LINK

 

* Picture – Add an image to use for the new link.

* Label – This is the name that will be displayed in the app.  For example “NY Times”.

* URL – Paste the full link address to use (ex: https://buzapps.net).

 

BROWSER CHOICE:

These options will affect how the link will be opened in the app.

* In app browser – The link will be opened in the app. You can choose different display options for Android and iOS.  For Android, most people would want to select “Show a close button similar to iOS” and “Enable zoom controls”.

* Custom tab: The link will be opened in the app but in a custom tab of the phone’s browser (ex: Chrome, Safari, etc…)

* External app: The link will be opened in the device browser (ex: Chrome, Safari, etc…).

 

After making your selections click Save.
