  • Deep-linking your NativeScript apps with iOS 9 User Activity and Core Spotlight APIs

    One of the biggest and greatest enhancements that arrived in iOS 9 (if not the biggest!) undisputedly is the deep-linking capabilities now open to the developers. Using the Spotlight search, your end-users can now search the contents of your app even if your app is not installed on their devices, granted that other users are already your app and browse the same content. Or, you can set some of the app contents to be private and available in the search only for the respective users.

    Of course, these search APIs are available in NativeScript, and today we are going to implement a NativeScript app that provides deep-linking capabilities​. Read on to learn how to do this.
