Launchable Application List Requests

Please post requests (and URL scheme if you have it!) for applications you wish to be added to the launchable application list.

To help find a URL scheme for a pay app:

Go to (depending on Mac or Windows, assuming Mac because I don't know the Windows one...)

  1. <your iTunes library>/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications, and locate the .ipa for the application.
  2. Copy the .ipa to your desktop (or some other convenient location)
  3. Rename .ipa to .zip, and extract
  4. Inside the Payload folder, locate the .app, right click, and "show package contents."
  5. Open Info.plist and attach or quote it (inside

    Code: Select all

    [code][/code]
    tags)

I vote for GV Mobile. Like, thirty times. =) It should, if possible, launch to the SMS pane, or the Voicemail pane, depending on what type of notification is received.

I will also vote GV Mobile... as many times as I can please :)


Also, Is it necessary for prowl to put you into a blank e-mail when forwarding to mail?

i imagine that mailto: is the only URL scheme that Mail knows.

is there already a URL scheme for Mail account+folder? if so, we should get Apple to add it. if not, Apple should create one. ;)

Here's my list of immediate suggestions...

  • Byline - For Google Reader Notifications
  • MyWeather Mobile - for Weather related Notifications
  • WeatherBug / WeatherBug Elite - for Weather related Notifications
  • The Weather Channel / The Weather Channel Max - for Weather related Notifications
  • TweetDeck - for Twitter related Notifications

Yeah, Mail only registers for mailto: as far as I can tell. It would be nice to launch otherwise.

I've updated the "no scheme yet" with the above suggestions. I pinged the GV mobile author and Byline author to see if they'd add.

I too would like to vote for GV Mobile.

But I was wondering if there was any technical reason why you could not allow the user to select any application to run, instead of having to get the application added to
the launchable application list. (This could be in addition to the launchable application list).

There's no actual way to launch an application specifically, nor to get a list of applications. The way Prowl is doing it is by executing a special-crafted urlscheme:// they register for, which is the same as launching them.

Would it be possible to have a user-configurable standard http URL redirect for MobileSafari?

Example: a new email notification is pushed by 'Gmail Notifr' to iPhone, and upon opening the alert Prowl would launch into Safari via http://www.gmail.com/ (and therefore into the inbox if already logged in)

This would be useful for those who do not use Mail for gmail or for those who do not have access to POP/IMAP when on corporate networks (which is my case, making Mail unuseable)

Thanks

Hi,

I would like to see BirdFeed as a launchable app.

Thanks,

Felix

Birdfeed is adding a URL scheme in the next version. AppGmail doesn't have one, nor does Skype. I've added Twittelator Pro to the launchable list.

Little pity you can't open mail on the root (selection of account) :/

I prefer cancel the redirection for the mail because the mail that I push to growl is not my default address so I have to do too many tap on the screen for arrive on the gmail account :/

Anyway thanks for improcibg this great app ;)

I see that GV Mobile is in your list of not having a URL Scheme but is adding one. Does adding a URL scheme require an update to the app? Because GV Mobile was pulled for the App Store by Apple I'd have to jailbreak to download an update for that app, and isn't there problems with Prowl and jailbroken phones?

Prowl works just fine with jailbroken phones if you activate it legally via iTunes. The problem is only with hacktivated ones. If you can use prowl on your phone, you can use it on your jailbroken phone. Having said that, I prefer not jailbreaking if possible and using the web interface for gv. Zac will be looking into adding custom url schemes on 1.2, if it is possible, and he does, you can use the web interface instead of the app.
