He opens the application, or open his service within the app you are doing with the Stencyl?

Hi guys,

I know that this only relates to Facebook but i wanted to ask you guys anyway since it is about opening the app rather than safari.

Since the Facebook extension is not working properly (as i understand from the thread regarding it) I have found another way to post a score onto a players wall. Thanks to ertsgaming for explaining most of the details. The only thing is that I'd rather have the native app to open than the safari version of Facebook (more convenient for the user). I have no idea on how to get this to work so I hope some one can :)
I have attached what i have so far ;)

You should be able to use the "open URL in browser" block, found in the "Game" section of the palette. :)

I've tested fb://watchparty/269776227369327 link and it works on my iPhone 7s, but the link is not active on Samsung phones. Do you know why and how can I fix this? I want the link to open the installed Facebook application from an SMS.
