To become a Boopsie Star Partner, you need to support a ‘scheme handler’ on iOS and Android so that our app can communicate with your app. Or your web service must be compatible with the Boopsie platform.
To facilitate inter-app communication and discovery, Boopsie has created an App Finder service that allows 3rd party apps on Android, iOS and BlackBerry to be able to detect if an app is installed and then offer to install the app if the app is not installed. The amount of coding required is minimal.
Sample projects are available for both Android and iOS that show how to implement a basic scheme handler as well as call the App Finder service if the given scheme is not supported. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and request the sample projects for both Android and iOS.
Please consult the technical document describing the App Finder and Scheme Handlers for more detail.
