How to hyperlink to files on device?

I'm using a Galaxy Tab S 10.5, with Lollipop 5.0.2. I have some CAD files that I'd like to hyperlink to that are on the device, and I'd like them to open up with the CAD Pockets app, which has file associations for those types of files (.dwg).

 

I have a Flex Viewer that I do this with in the office, and it works fine in Windows. I know I have to add a field for the hyperlink data in the feature class and put some kind of hyperlink to the file in there, but I don't know what the path looks like on Android. Is there even a C drive? I have a file manager app and for the file path, it shows a home icon, then a device icon, then storage > extSdCard>manholes. The files are in subfolders in that manholes directory. But what do those icon stand for and is there a root directory?

 

Anyone doing anything like this or know how to do it? I'd be very grateful.

 

Thanks,

 

Nick
