Launch system and third party apps with iOS URL Scheme from Collector/Survey123

    The URL scheme has been implemented for ESRI mobile apps (Understanding Survey123's custom URL Scheme) but leveraging the iOS SDK to launch third party and system apps would extend the functionality of Survey123.


    For example, I am designing a Survey123 survey for bird counts that occur within 3 minute observation intervals. Enabling the user to launch a timer at the start of a count and launch a gps logger to record tracks would be hugely useful.


    Is this do-able or are there complex back-end modifications that limit such free inter-app communication?
