    I had a great experience with In-App web browser.
    The only downside I had is opening another application through the browser , which is Facebook messenger so I can share into it.
    My application : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ZvendorSolutions.meme
    I used https://www.addtoany.com/ to share my object
    This is what happens when I try to share to facebook messenger : https://www.dropbox.com/s/q4ibf6yuludctqc/Screenshot_20170529-152838.jpg?dl=0
    When you use the application and opens the browser through it , you will find that you can share to any host but the Facebook messenger.
    I googled it and figured out the problem I am facing that any sharing goes to a web view but the Facebook messenger is the only one goes to an application thus I figured out that the problem is because the In-App web can’t open it.
    The sharing is working through google chrome and fire fox and all web browser but this app so that’s why I am sure the bug is here.
    Thanks in advance,


    Thanks for posting question here.

    Just to be sure – is it something which happens on Android only?
    Did you check it on iOS?


    Yes it happens on both android and IOS
    I think the browser isn’t capable of opening another application
    As it works all browser but not this plugin


    It requires some special handling. I can ask OS to open another app from web browser, but what should happen if user doesn’t have Messenger installed?

    So it goes like that
    – If browser tries to open URL with fb-messenger:// scheme then
    – if OS is able to open it by itself (meaning there’s FB messenger app) then let it open
    – if OS isn’t able to open it by itself then… ?

    I am asking because by default Android crashes in that case so wondering what you would like to see here 🙂
