With mobile deep linking, you can easily set up your custom domain to support the industry-standard deep linking methods: Apple's Universal Links and Google's Android App Links.
Bitly also supports domain-level overrides as well as the legacy method of deep linking known as Custom Schemes.
Follow these links to learn how to create mobile deep links with each of these methods:
- Universal Links & Android App Links: Enable all links on a custom domain to deep link into your app. This set-and-forget feature ensures you're providing the best mobile customer experience for all your links.
- Domain-level Overrides: Set an alternate mobile path (a.k.a. mobile URI), Alternate Install Preference, or Alternate Install URL on any link already configured for Universal Links and/or Android App Links.
- Legacy Custom Schemes: Enable an individual link to be a deep link by associating it directly with your app.
- Note: Apple has deprecated this method with iOS 9+ by requiring the user to jump through additional steps before reaching your app.
