Have you ever wanted to add an UIWebView to your application, so you can browse the internets without leaving your application? While it is a trivial task to add an UIWebView to a project, there are some links that an UIWebView will not handle.
I’ve written a generic BrowserViewController, code available on GitHub here: http://github.com/sburlot/browserviewcontroller which handles all these cases:
mailto links are handled with a MFMail: I tried to handle all variations on the link: “to”, “cc”, “subject” and “body”.
YouTube, Map, iTunes and AppStore links are opened in their respective apps.
You can customise the view and decide if you want a navigation tab bar or not.
The navigation tab bar will add standard web buttons: Back, Forward, Stop, Reload and also a button to send the url of the current page via email, or open it in Safari.
