How to use launch-function from one PowerApp to another PowerApp with parameters?

Hi,

    I have one PowerApp named PA, and when I click the button, I will go to another PowerApp named PB, and pass a parameter.

I used launch-function like this: 
Launch("https://web.powerapps.com/apps/987382919","SomeID","123")

"987382919" is the ID of the PB.

Here is the problem, when I test the PA in PowerApps on my iPhone, it worked well, just  went directly to the PB. But when I test the PA in PowerApps on my computer in the browser, it went to  https://as.create.powerapps.com/studio/ instead of the PB.

Then I added a question mark in the function like this:

Launch("https://web.powerapps.com/apps/987382919?","SomeID","123")

When I test the PA in PowerApps on my iPhone, it said PB couldn't open in the right way. When I test the PA in PowerApps on my computer in the browser, it worked well, just  went directly to the PB.

 

Now I want to know is there a way to get the device system, so the PA could know the user is using a phone ,then use the Launch("https://web.powerapps.com/apps/987382919","SomeID","123"), if the user is using a computer browser, PA would use the Launch("https://web.powerapps.com/apps/987382919?","SomeID","123").

Hi @NicoleChina,

 

Please just tried to use web link to Launch the app, and I get the web link here:

Using this web link would both work on mobile or web browser. What is your web browser? Please try to test with another one.

 

So far PowerApps cannot detect the device system. You can vote on below idea if you need this function:
