    Over the past year I have been creating a custom popup on an ArcGIS Map and one of the fields on that popup is a a hyperlink to a native iOS application. This recently broke for the Collector and Explorer applications with the latest release and is now not possible :(

    This hyperlink is a URL scheme into the iOS phone app and will automatically trigger a phone call. This way the user looking at the feature can see all associated details can trigger a phone call to person responsible.

    This can also be done with other apps that support URL scheme such as Facetime, SMS, Phone, and tons of 3rd party apps which opens up a ton of functionality.
