Launching another powerapp via Powerapps on iOS opens browser


As the title states: Launching a powerapp via another powerapp on Powerapps iOS opens in a browser window instead of inside the Powerapps app.
This blog states that - ( :

"You can use a single HTTPs URL to launch your app either in the mobile app or in the web browser based on your preference. The URL also accept query strings, which you can use to pass parameters to the app.<appid> (I assume this is the format of a "Universal link", whatever this means)

If the user using the link does not have the app installed on mobile, the app runs in the browser automatically.

For example, you can link a Site Survey company app to launch another app to collect user feedback. The user feedback app will run on PowerApps mobile if the app is installed. Please note these links launch the mobile apps on iOS and Android."

This is not the case however... Instead the second powerapp is opened in a browser, despite the iOS app being installed. Anyone having the same issues/experience with a fix?

Hi @Anonymous ,

Do you want to open another app in an app in powerapps mobile?

I've made a similar test and I could run the external app successfully.

Here's my test for your reference:

1)in app1, I insert a button, set the button's OnSelect:


The app2's appID:



 2)I run app1 in powerapps mobile.

When I click the button, it will run app2 in  powerapps mobile.


2)Here's my mobile system: ios13.3

My powerapps mobile is the latest version.

Please try to update your powerapps mobile to the latest version.


If you still have problems, please show me how do you set your app and how do you run app in details.

Hi @v-yutliu-msft,

Yes, I want to open another app in an app in powerapps mobile. The issue is not how to do this, but instead that when I run my powerapp(s) via the mobile app on a Android, the behaviour is different than on iPhone (mind you I have only tested on two co-workers phones, but don't ask me about the iOS versions on those).
