Auto Populate App's Search Box with Text Message Address Hyperlink?

I will begin with this: I am not much of a developer, and have a limited knowledge of developing apps for Android. But we found this application that does exactly what we need it to do:  https://github.com/Esri/maps-app-android 

 

It does geolocating, reverse geolocating, and routing in one application, it works perfectly on our devices, and we have done very little configuring since it does everything we need. But, we get calls for service from police dispatch and the address is delivered via text message and the address is displayed as a hyperlink in the text message. I have figured out how to configure it so when this link is clicked, it opens on my phone the app mentioned above, but I want it to auto-populate the search bar in the app with the address from the text message. The other apps on my phone that support this functionality, Google Maps, Zillow, and a couple others, all can do this, but I can't figure out how. Any ideas?
