>                 Key: CB-5446
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0, 3.1.0
>         Environment: Any Android device! Tested on Nexus S (2.3.6), Nexus 4 (4.3), Samsung
Galaxy S (2.3.3), HTC One X (4.1.2)

> When I add a custom URL in my html page, for example:
> <a href="myapp://test/testing.html">Link that opens another Android app</a>
> If I click on the link, I am getting an error "Application Error" with the content:
> "The protocol isn't supported. (myapp://test/testing.html)"
> This issue does not exist in Cordova 2.x. You can try this by cloning the following github
repo ( and install the app on your Android
device. Then from another Android app, create a hyperlink that uses the custom URL scheme
that the first app listens to e.g. "myapp://". 
> Note: The sample app uses WebIntent plugin. The plugin itself works fine with Cordova
3.0 and can be downloaded from
> P.S. I saw similar problem in this Jira issue
The fix to hardcode market:// seems to avoid fixing this GENERAL problem.
