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.

Creating a Deep Link

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/convert/demo 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/convert/demo

Using Your Deep Link

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/convert/demo">Open in app</a>

This website is operated by me, Jan, and my team. I have previously developed a bunch of apps for clients and my own projects. Back in 2019 I noticed that none of the existing website to app converters provide the kind of service I'd expect as a customer. That inspired me to develop a better solution - webtoapp.design. By now, the apps I've created with my team have already been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times from the app stores.
