How To Quickly Launch Apps In iOS Devices With Siri

Do you want a quick way to open apps using Siri? Fortunately you can, just tell Siri what app you wish to open, whether it's Facebook, Youtube or Twitter. However, it takes a little trick to make Siri opens your app, since Apple did not make this possible.

You are going to need the Safari URL schemes and add them into your contact. Create a new contact and place the URL scheme for apps you would like to be opened using Siri into your new contact.

Let's say you want to command Siri to open Facebook, Facebook profile and Facebook friends, the URL Schemes you need to add into contact are:

  • fb://profile – Open Facebook app
  • fb://profile – Open Facebook profile
  • fb://friends – Open Facebook to view the friends list
