Is there a simular method like the sms and email one? Where you click and call a number with your native apple phone app

Try this: [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"tel://123456789"]];

Hi there,

Just the way you would use a mail link:

<a href="mailto:example@example.com">Contact me</a>

You are able to use

<a href="tel:012345678">Call me</a>

To place phonecalls, i am assuming this also works on iOS ( Just tested on android ) Also maybe Skype has another way of handling these ones.

Good luck !

Thank you. But it dosen't work on iOS. :(

What about

<a href="callto:012345678">Call me </a>

Thanks again. But not working. Think it needs to be objectiv C code in xcode?
