Mobile Connect

The Mobile Connect bookmark allows a custom bookmark to be defined for display in Mobile Connect after the user is connected. This bookmark is meant to support any third-party app, whether an in-house app or a public app in the App Store or Google Play. The bookmark also enables calling third-party apps that have defined a custom URL scheme, for example ‘comgoogleearth://’ for Google Earth.
