External browser

In Locify you can call phone's built in external browser and show there page which is too complex for Locify client. But don't use external browser too much, because user has to leave Locify client. On non-smartphones it is needed to close Locify entirely to see the external browser.


External browser can be called via internal URL "locify://external/http://url-to-be-opened". You can use this internal URL in a link on the page or inside redirection.

Example (using redirection)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:locify="http://client.locify.com/locify_ns/1.0" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=locify://external/http://maps.yahoo.com/print.php?ard=1&amp;mlt=$lat&amp;mln=$lon&amp;resize=s&amp;mag=2&amp;zoomin=yes&amp;ovx=200&amp;ovy=200&amp;ds=n" />
