Launching other apps from Powerapps

Just wondering if anyone has a comprehensive list of app IDs for using the Launch() function in PowerApps? I did a search and can't find much info.

 

I know you can use "tel:" for launching a phone call and "sms:" to launch the text app. I'd like to be able to launch the iPhone reminder or calendar app. 

 

Thanks

Re: Launching other apps from Powerapps

Hi @CP153319,

 

The launch function can be used to open either a web browser (if the parameter points to a website), or 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. But so far you cannot  launching an external app in PowerApps. If you want this feature, you could vote on the below idea that has been submitted by others:

Re: Launching other apps from Powerapps

To Launch Uber or Lyft from PowerApps on Android, this works:

 

Enter the following for the OnSelect property for a label or button in your PowerApp:

Launch("uber://?action=setPickup&pickup=my_location")

Launch("lyft://?action=setPickup&pickup=my_location")
