I’m currently working on an application that sends text messages to some of its users. In that text message we send a URL for the end user to click. iOS, Windows Phone, and Android will all show their end users a link for the URL so they can easily click it right from their messaging app! Great! Except one thing…
Android does not support hash/hashtag/number sign/hashbang/whatever you call it URL’s!
I tried searching around to see if I can find a reason for it, but alas to no avail.
*Side note: I believe the “perfect” long term solution would be to use a “URL Shortening Service”.*
