How can I call my app from another app?

Cata82Cata82 ITMember

I developed a cross-platform app with Xamarin.Forms.

I have another app, developed with Ionic Framework, which has a button that call my app in Xamarin. This button has tested with my Xamarin app in iOS and works fine, but in Android is not working!! :(

What I have to do in Android to allow my Xamarin app to be called from another one?

    What is the code you are using to do this?
    And what isn't working? Do you get any errors? Maybe in the output window when you run it?

    In my Ionic application I use the AppAvailability and InAppBrowser plugin to launch an external app.
    I tested my code with Facebook app calling fb://profile and it launch facebook installed app and open my dashboard.

    In my Ionic application I use:'oikosarckey://', '_system', 'location=no'); to launch my Xamarin application named oikosarckey.

    In my Xamarin application, in MainActivity.cs I have this code:

    [Activity (Label = "OikosArckey.Droid", MainLauncher = true, Icon = "@drawable/icon", Exported = true, ConfigurationChanges = ConfigChanges.ScreenSize | ConfigChanges.Orientation)]
    [IntentFilter(new [] {Android.Content.Intent.ActionView }, DataScheme="oikosarckey", DataHost="it.mediastudio.oikosarckey", Categories=new [] { Android.Content.Intent.CategoryDefault })]

    But when I click the button to launch my Xamarin app nothing happens.

    Where am I wrong?
