IntentKit : The iOS Tool for Inter-App Linking


Linking to third-party apps from your app/action can be a potentially tedious task. You need to check if an (or more than one) application capable of handling a particular action is installed, list the apps that supports the action so the user can choose the app he/she wants to perform the action with and also provide an option to remember that preference.

IntentKit is a library that makes it easier to link to other apps. For users, it provides a nice selection interface to choose which third-party app to perform an action with. For developers, it provides an API based on semantic actions. With IntentKit you don’t need to check which applications a user has installed or construct URLs manually, it will automatically query the device for you to figure out what applications are available to perform a given action. It provides a unified, human-readable repository of third-party URL schemes.¬†You can also extend IntentKit to add your own URL scheme.
