Open a map through an e-mail link

Not sure how difficult this would be to add, but it would be nice if I could send an e-mail message containing a link of an existing map to a user and that user could click the link to open the ArcGIS for iOS application and have that particular map load. Of course the user would have to already have an account and be signed in at arcgis.com (?).

You have probably seen where other applications handle this through custom URL schemes.  The URL might be something like arcgis://www.arcgis.com/map1. Some examples of custom URL schemes can be seen here.
