    It's really been a long time waiting for this, over two years now!  My team has been manually
patching this piece of code to support custom application URIs for over a year.  I'm not familiar
enough with the Cordova code or project management to know why the iOS code changes are in
there, or if there is a related JIRA ticket.  That said, it sure is inconvenient that custom
URIs work differently between iOS and Android.  It seems like either both should work with
custom URI schemes, or neither should (my vote's of course for the former).
    
    Anyway, if adding application URIs in an InAppBrowser is not a good idea, then maybe someone
can chime in on how to correctly implement something that requires a redirect back to an app.
 For example, we use OpenID Connect as a single sign-on solution.  As part of the OpenID Connect
spec the user agent (the mobile app) sends the user to a web page to authenticate.  Then,
on successful authentication, the user is redirected back to the client with an access token
and id token.  That redirect back requires handling a custom URI scheme, and it does not work
in Android.
    
    There's a long list of folks affected by this, and it's a burden for your users to have
to use custom forks to implement something as common and simple as OAuth2.  That's especially
true since the solution, at least ostensibly, seems trivial.  I for one would really appreciate
a fix!
