Javascript Question

Open android application from a web page

I know that for opening android application from a link inside a web page we have to write the following in the AndroidManifest.xml:

<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW"/>
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
<data android:scheme="my_scheme" android:host="my_host" />
</intent-filter>


The problem is that I wrote it in the following way:

<intent-filter>
<action android:name="my_action"/>
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
<data android:scheme="my_scheme" android:host="my_host" />
</intent-filter>


I didn't add "android.intent.action.VIEW" and instead I added my own action that i made.
I can't change it because the version is already released.

The question is, if there's a way to make the application run from JavaScript or simple html page, maybe by defining the specific action in the page?

Thanks,

Paz.




SOLVED:

Thanks to David I found a solution:

<a href="intent://my_host#Intent;scheme=my_scheme;action=my_action;end">Link to my stuff</a>

Answer

Try this:

Make your links look like this:

<a href="intent:#Intent;action=my_action;end">Link to my stuff</a>
