What are App Links?

App Links are a new open source, cross-platform standard for helping link between Mobile and the Web (and vice-versa).

App Links are a defined set of metadata that can be advertised within html of web pages that specify how to deep link to content inside of a Mobile app. App Links are about the discovery of ways to link between Mobile and Web.

  • Mobile Deep Linking from the Web - Web pages can advertise special tags within a normal web page, which specify how to deep link to content inside of a particular Mobile app.
  • Mobile to Mobile Linking - Mobile apps can resolve meta data from Web links into links for other mobile apps. How does it work?

Let's say you have a link: http://example.com/products/widget which displays information about a Widget you can buy on the web.

What if you also had a native Mobile app which could display this information? How would you describe how to send users to it? Most platforms have some means of 'deep-linking' inside of an app, but each platform does it a little bit differently.

Using App Links, you can resolve what different mobile platform links are available for a given url. For example, if you resolve the app links for the url mentioned above, you could find that the equivalent deep link url for the iOS app is actually: example://products?id=widget (as is specified by the tags right within the web page's html).
