Hello,

Does the Hiking Project app support url schemes for deeplinking? For instance, I'd like to use the api in my custom application to find trails and then invoke a deeplink that would launch Hiking Project to a specific trail (eg "hikingproject://?id=7004226")

Thanks,

Joel

Hey Joel, 

After speaking with our engineers, it does sound like our app supports deep linking. The iOS format looks like this: hikingproject://trail/ID and the Android format should work using a normal URL. Let me know if that helps, and we can go from there! 

Best regards, 

Mikhaila

Thanks Mikhaila, got it!

Last question, are there any plans to extend the existing api support? For instance, add a method to retrieve a trail's geometry?

Thanks

Joel

Hey Joel, 

Ahh, interesting. I'm not sure that we have that on our current road map, but if you could send along a compelling use case, I can certainly pass it along to our engineers. 

Best regards,
