You can use deep links on your website to open a page inside your app - provided that the app is installed on the user's device.
First, you need to find you app's deep linking scheme in your app navigation settings. In this guide we will use the scheme app600 as an example.
Then, decide on the URL you want the app to show when the deep link is clicked. Let's use https://webtoapp.design/examples as an example.
Now, to turn your URL into a deep link URL, replace the URL scheme (usually https or http) with your deep linking scheme. So in our example the resulting URL would be app600://webtoapp.design/examples
You can now use this URL wherever you'd like, for example on your website or in e-mails. In a link tag it'd look like this:
<a href="app600://webtoapp.design/examples">Open in app</a>
If the user doesn't have the app installed, nothing will happen when clicking the link. Unfortunately, there's no way to work around this because of a couple of limitations: There's no way to check if the app is installed, so we can't try to open the deeplink and, if it fails, open the page in the browser.
Luckily there's an alternative that works for most use cases: App Links
This short guide explains the process of inviting the webtoapp.design team into an Apple Developer account so we can upload your iOS app.

Hi, I'm Jan! I created webtoapp.design in 2019 while studying computer science in university. A lot has changed since then - not only have I graduated, but it's also no longer just me running webtoapp.design. We've grown to a global, fully remote team and have gathered lots of experience around app development and app publishing. We've created and published hundreds of apps in the app stores, where they've been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.
