Mobile Deep Linking

How to Make an App


In this episode of the App Business Podcast, Andrew and Chris discuss the possibilities unlocked by mobile deep linking functionality coming built in to iOS 9 and Android M.

Mobile deep links allow data to be passed between apps from the web and other apps. They open up a whole new world of possibilities for developers and an improved user experience. Here are some of the key points from our discussion:

  • There are some big moves being made in the deep linking space. Apple, Google and Facebook are all making moves in this area.
  • Currently only 28 percent of the top 200 apps even have deep linking tags in place.
  • Find out what we think the impact will be for app developers, publishers, entrepreneurs. How can you take advantage?
  • iOS 9 is introducing ‘Universal Links’ – tied in with Spotlight and Siri to provide a much better search experience. Huge opportunities here for app developers in regards to app discovery.
  • Android M will introduce ‘App Links’ – Google’s deep linking standard.
