Hi,


I read in these posts:

that the +tel protocol is supported. However, it only seems to work on my iPhone when I test via mobile safari. If I save the app to my home screen and run it full screen then nothing happens when I click the link

Hi Steve,


I don't understand what you mean with "If I save the app to my home screen". How did you do it?

In safari on iOS click the "add to home screen button" so that the prototype appears as an "app"

I've run some test in iPhone4 and it works find. Could you send us an image of tel protocol that you have made?


Thanks.

OK, I found the problem. On iOS 7 beta 5 the tel protocol wasn't working. Then I tried an iPhone running iOS 6 and it worked fine. iOS 7 seems to have broken this functionality

Thanks Steve.


It's a beta and maybe they fix it. I'm going to reply this issue to the development team.
