Testing your app's URL scheme the easy way

Last week, while testing some deep linking functionality in a mobile app, I was still testing this functionality like in the old days. Just typing the URL in Safari on my launched simulator.

Luckily, there is a much easier approach to launch the simulator nowadays. Via the installed command line tools. You can just type following command:

xcrun simctl openurl booted "yourAppScheme://xxx"

This approach makes testing you app scheme less time consuming. Happy testing!
