Facebook Still Thinks It Can Make Apps Work More Like The Web
AUGUST 21, 2014
Facebook has been pushing hard to get mobile-app developers to adopt App Links , its open source software that facilitates deep-links (think URLs that point directly to information inside apps). If it succeeds, links inside apps will no longer take you to mobile Web browsers if another app is a more relevant destination. Facebook product manager Vijay Shankar describes App Links. The company released App Links in April. Google doesn’t support App Links.
