    Hi all, very brand new to any mobile dev. I am trying to setup my app, so if a person is on a web page, they can click a link, and it will auto launch the app, with the app reading the URL posted. I know it can be done, (twitter, facebook, etc.. all do it)

    Any help anyone can provide would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you. I should be more specific. I know about intents, but I can't seem to get them to work..

    Code (csharp):
    1.   <intent-filter>
    2.     <data android:scheme="TheARC"/>
    3.     <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
    4.   </intent-filter>
